Description:
Bric-à-brac (origin French), first used in the Victorian era, refers to collections of curios such as elaborately decorated teacups and small vases, feathers, wax flowers under glass domes, eggshells, statuettes, painted miniatures or photographs, and so on. Bric-à-brac was used as ornament on mantelpieces, tables, and shelves, or displayed in curio cabinets—sometimes these cabinets have glass doors to display the items within while protecting them from dust.

Bric-à-brac nowadays refers to a selection of items of low value, often sold in street markets.It is also sold in many curio stores and souvenir shacks along the famous U.S. Route 66. During the 1950s-60s Americans found a large interest in bric a brac and as a result it was sold in many "everything shops" such as Sears and Target.
