Curtis Collectibles got its origins in the flea markets of Winnipeg, MB. The founder, Darryl, grew up reading comics, watching reruns of Star Trek, and was in the theaters watching Star Wars: A New Hope when it was released in 1977. A long time Sci-fi and comic book fan, collecting became a hobby. Living in Canada, access to new collectibles has always been limited and frustrating. Darryl saw the need for better access to new collectible products and this was the beginning of Curtis Collectibles. Originally selling on eBay and then in Flea Markets, this led to too much overhead cost driving up the price. Eventually, sales moved to Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji. The natural progression has led to the creation of this website.
