Curiosa Temporarily Moves to Online Only

Curiosa Temporarily Moves to Online Only

Stephen & I have spent the last few days talking of nothing other than what we should do about the shops being open right now. We have read article after article about how imperative social distancing is to flatten the curve here in Canada so we have made the extremely difficult decision that, after today, we are closing both Curiosa and our other store, The Paper Place, to the public and moving to online only for the time being.

We have truly agonized over this and I know people may have different reactions to this news but please know we did not make this decision lightly. We understand the long term financial risks that lay ahead for us (believe me, we did the spreadsheets!), but we have to follow our hearts and the health and safety of our team and community are more important. ⁣

Please know that our staff will be taken care of during this time and we are all trying to brainstorm some fun ways to still bring you a little bit of magic during this difficult period - just from a distance :)⁣

We will keep everyone updated as things evolve! ⁣

Wishing health, happiness and love to everyone. It’s just for a while - we can do this ❤️

Telling Futures and Fortunes using the Tea Leaves 6:30 - 8:00pm 

Session is $45.00 per person

Tea is steeped in superstition, and reading fortunes with it hearkens back to days of the old divinatory art forms of the Shamans; interpreting symbols and formations made by random objects. Tasseomancy is the Art and Practice of divination by the interpretation of symbolic patterns made by tea leaves in a teacup.

Join Amy as she talks about how this form of divination came to be the Art it is today. She will cover its rich history and origins, the tools used and the forms it is done in. This is an interactive and fun presentation for people of all ages and you will have the opportunity to try your hand at the art!
