Weird And Normal Things

This shop on the left showing Weird Things has been in the location on Bathurst St for a couple of years and they do have weird things - some antiques, some 'antiques' they make, and some folk art pieces. The  Normal Things sign on the derelict building next door just appeared in the last couple of weeks - I love it! The buildings are in a developer limbo since someone wants to tear them down and build a structure that isn't allowed in the zoning bylaws.

Shouldn't the signs be switched?

Wonderful signs. Someone has a great sense of humor, and I'm glad you found these.

Sharon Anck said...

How funny! I'm glad you spotted this. The new sign makes a perfect counterbalance.

Luis Gomez said...

Great capture Pat!

Sharon from Phoenix sent me to look at this photo, which is AWESOME. I love it. :)

I like it. It could lead to even more shops - Everyday Things, Funny Things, Dumb Things, Junky Things, etc.

VP said...

Well caught, you made me laugh! I obviously vote for weird things...

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast!

Hmm. Which door should I choose . . . :-)

Hilarious!

Great shot!

Great take and unusual sign name.

Penelope Postcards said...

Instead of looking after old things and maintaining the beauty of what already exists, it is indeed normal to tear down and erect bigger things.

I am laughing out loud for reals! Hilarious retaliation from the "normal things" building. :)

cieldequimper said...

Lol!!

Duh, restore them, they're wonderful!

Andy said...

Weird and normal. Just like life. :)

Now that's cool. Tom The Backroads Traveller

their sign Weird Things would certainly entice me to walk into their store. I normally hate to see older buildings torn down, but the boarded-up building looks like it's on its last legs.

Wonderful shot! Did you go in?

Gemma Wiseman said...

What a fun pairing of signs. I like how the 'normal' looks weathered and broken.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm smiling!

jennyfreckles said...

Someone has a nice sense of humour

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Lovely and interesting picture, the colours are great..

Linda said...

Looks like a professionally done sign. Hmm.

bettyl-NZ said...

What a great sense of humor someone has!

Jack said...

That is funny, but the structures are really struggling. It will be interesting to see what happens to them.

That's so funny Pat! Someone has a great sense of humor and you found a perfect picture for Signs. It will be interesting to see what happens.
