From the British Isles and Beyond . . . Since 1998! The CURIOSITY Shop is the largest British Isles import store in the Southeast at 8000 sq feet. We carry a full range of items imported from the United Kingdom and Ireland. Books, Jewellery, Clothing, Tartans, Toys, and food items, that while staples in the UK, are difficult to obtain the the US. Our selection of souveniers is the best you will find.

Went to Graniteville location expecting to pick up imported items I could only find there but the building is empty. Appears to have gone out of business.

Awesome experience, very friendly! Best place to go if you're looking for early 20's and to the late 80's. Always has stuff coming in everyday. It's an amazing collection, 20+ years. I'm amazed! Left with some laughs and great memories! Definitely going back! 👌👍

We have went to the store a few times, each at a different location. We have not yet visited the Graniteville location. We loved going there, and they have lots of neat and different items to see and purchase.

It is now in two locations. We prefer the Graniteville one. It is easier to park and I am sure a boon to the town. The tea is still good and the service much quicker!

If you are as interested in your Irish and/or Scottish heritage as I am, then Curiosity Shop will likely do the same for you. Even if this does not apply to you, I recommend at least one visit for the opportunity to experience somewhere different,...More
