Purveyor of modest antiques with superfluous histories.

A seasoned storyteller and qualified daydreamer, J. W. Smithworth is fascinated with the unfathomable and derives magic from the banal. He has dedicated his life to collecting the mundane and transforming it into the extraordinary.

Smithworth’s Tall Tales and Associated Trinkets features some of J. W.’s most prized baubles; antiques and gadgets which might appear elementary, but from the right perspective, are oozing with passion and purpose.

Thank you, dear guest, for visiting. I hope you’ll find something which piques your imagination.
