The Weird and The Wonderful

I have a pretty cool job. Working, as I am these days, buying for set decoration in the film business takes you to some interesting places. This is one of my favorites; a plumbing fixture shop like no other~ Adidison's in Toronto.

It is really an emporium and I don't believe there are many true emporiums left in the world these days...

Everywhere you look there are layers of ephemera. There are no carefully rendered vignettes here. By virtue of the sheer volume and quality of goods the effect is pure magic~ all the more enchanting to roam through and experience...

This is just a tiny glimpse into what this out of the way place has to offer~ unfortunately I had to leave and carry on with my day's agenda. Can't wait to return...

I love this store. Wish I lived nearby so I could visit. I'm sure I would be there all the time if I lived close by.
