Odds and Ends

Odds and EndsYou’ll find this sign above a Queen Street West junk shop that’s so jammed full of old clocks, scuffed paintings and garage sale clutter that you can hardly make it past the entrance.

A big orange “D” dominates the conversation. An “E” and “N” perform a lopsided dance. A rusty little “s” threatens to leave the party. There’s a garland of lights encircling the chaos.

I love this sign because it’s a perfect representation of what’s inside. It even suggests a mode of living: throw together the right castoffs and you might end up with ecstasy.
