Lisbon Seed Merchant Caught in Time Warp?

In the middle of Lisbon’s city centre, just around the corner from the main promenade, I stumbled upon this somewhat dated horticultural seed retailer. 

SEED MERCHANT IN DOWNTOWN LISBON

 

Several Questions came to mind, such as

  1. What is he doing selling his wares in the middle of the capital?
  2. How can he afford to be there, given that he had no customers?
  3. When did the store last have a bit of money spent on maintenance?

"MODERN" IS NOT A PHRASE THAT COMES TO MIND

I tried to strike up a conversation with the proprietor – which was unsuccessful due to a total inability to find a common language.
