An antique dealer, Lewis Vendredi, made a deal with the Devil, in exchange for success and eternal life. Every object in his antique store was cursed. When these cursed objects fell into the hands of one who's evil nature struck a resonant chord in the object, its power was unleashed to help the evil user spread his own brand of insanity through the world.

At first, Lewis was delighted by the evil fallout from the objects. In time, he reneged on the deal. Lewis then tried to lock away his cursed collection in the one place on earth where they are harmless - the vault in his basement. Quickly after this the Devil came for him.

Micki Foster and Ryan Dallion, Lewis' niece and nephew, inherited the antique store from their 'Uncle' Lewis. Their legacy was a surprise. Eager to return to their own lives, they sold off the remaining antiques at bargain prices. Only then did they discover The Manifest, a dusty, leather-bound book listing the cursed items, the date of sale, and the buyer's name, as well as a set of newspaper clippings detailing their powers.

Jack Marshak, an old friend of Lewis', had discovered something of what he was doing, and vowed to stop him. Together, the three agreed to dedicate their lives to undoing the harm they had done - to seek out the evil objects, and return them to the safety of the vault. Needing a base of operations, and having to stay close to the vault, they moved into the store, re-christened it Curious Goods, and opened for business.

Qvamp says:

An intriguing and very campy series that only ran for three years.

In 'Night Pray', a vampire hunter discovers an antique cross from the Crusades that burns a vampire to death after killing a human.

In a strange turn of events, he begins feeding a female vampire. During this time he hires a prostitute and gives her to the vampire. The vampire seduces the woman and then kills her

'Mesmer's Bauble' offers up a disturbing portrait of a man so obsessed with a singer, that he is not happy just dating her, he needs to become her.
