That is, how do certain items have demons and curses attached to them? I can't really think of an answer.
I recommend you take the items to a priest for proper disposal (if the items were indeed created for actual use in the occult as opposed to something that wasn't). The items don't have to have been used to necessitate them being disposed of. If it wasn't intended for actual usage in the occult... but still holds an unhealthy fascination on the subject for you... then get rid of it. If it's not an actual occult item and doesn't present a danger to your spiritual health (like a souvenir mask you got in Africa), then have it blessed anyway so that it will never present such a danger to yourself or anyone else.
