We find them in junk stores, rummage sales, basements, attics, garages, and barns. Sometimes even on the side of the road or in the garbage. Abandoned objects that are no longer wanted or needed.
Regardless of how insignificant or strange these objects may seem, each was created for a reason, whether practical, fanciful, malfeasant, or flat-out ridiculous. These artifacts were made, acquired, and used by people. And all of these people have stories.
At Occulta Thesauri, we rescue interesting (and sometimes bizarre!) objects, research their histories, and write their stories. Those stories, even more so than the objects themselves, are occulta thesauri – the hidden treasures we share.
