How It All Started: About Our Owner and Founder

Mary House, Texas A&M University '08 Graduate and mother of 2 started Curious Collections in 2018 with her dad's collection of vinyl and collectibles.

After her father died in a car accident in Saudi Arabia, Mary and her brother went to West Virginia to clean out her dad's storage units and found thousands of vinyl records and collectibles in storage.

After making the long trip from Charleston, WV to Bryan, TX, Mary unloaded into her first location on Texas Ave. Behind Barnes and Noble over by Tutor John and opened her doors for business in October 2016.  As you can see from the pictures, the store started out with a lot of her dad's collectables and antiques as well as records. After opening the doors, Mary realized the market in this town for vinyl was much larger than she had anticipated and she quickly converted the store from an antique store record store.
