Street Corner Coffins

I probably read about it in the Pioneer Press back in 2012, but somehow I overlooked the arrival of a storefront prominently labeled "Affordable Coffins" on Snelling Avenue, just north of University, in Saint Paul's Midway neighborhood.

Not sure why this strikes me funny. It's probably the fact that it's in a storefront, complete with hand-painted grocery store signs suggesting the coffins' many uses.

I'm kind of a fan of cremation or, even better, the new environmental methods of disposing of your body, like resomation. But if you want a traditional burial, I'd definitely give Affordable Coffins a call.
