Signs that make me laugh: “Rose Computers and Antiques Enterprise”

Would you buy your computer from an antique dealer?  The odd combination of merchandise reminds me of Bakewell Auto Parts and Pet Supplies.

This place, which actually seems to do alright, is on Danforth between Woodbine and Coxwell.  I love that it’s an “enterprise”.    That really sets them apart from the computer-and-antique competition.

I wonder if you can get old Commodore 64s in there, or 5 inch floppy disks…

What makes somebody want to sell both antiques and computers?  Maybe it’s just really hard to make it in the antique market, because just around the corner is a place advertising “Hair Cutting & Antiques.”

Do you think they use antique scissors?  Straight razors?

    I love that you have an endless supply of weird in your own neighbourhood.

    And I’m holding back. I’ve got a few more filed away for future posts. Wait til you see “Big Daddy’s Computer Lounge.”
