About Us

The Prop Room is Toronto’s leading antique and period prop house / rental company.

Fritz, originally from Austria, made annual buying trips to Europe to hunt for & ship back fine antiques to sell in his high-end retail store. While doing so, he also sought out unique rental items for The Prop Room. All this time, Fritz listened and responded very carefully to the rental needs of Toronto-based photographers, stylists, set designers, and movie production studios and, over a 38+ year period, he acquired an amazing collection of over 10,000 rental items. This dedicated rental inventory was displayed in the basement of Inquisitive Antiques for many years, and The Prop Room built an enviable reputation for having an unbeatable selection of rental stock and first-class customer service.

Fritz retired and closed his retail antique store in February 2010, which presented the perfect opportunity for The Prop Room to be relocated into well-organized, conveniently positioned showrooms. The entire inventory of The Prop Room is now displayed professionally in a building with far better access for our customers. These showrooms are now established at The Leaside Commercial Centre, 42 Industrial Street in East York. Fritz and his friendly, knowledgeable staff warmly invite you to visit and view the huge choice of antique & period prop rental items on display. Whether you are sailing the high seas in a nautical themed shoot or traveling to a western style saloon, The Prop Room has loads of unique props that will help set the mood.

Visit our “Photo Gallery” to view photographs of a selection of our stock. Of particular interest for commercial photographers will be the largest inventory of over 200 table top surfaces in Canada, primarily rented for food photography. We have had the pleasure of working with people from many different industries over the years and are looking forward to working with you on your upcoming event / party, theater production, tv show, film or photoshoot!


After 40 years building The Prop Room into a highly successful Antique & Period Prop Rental company, Fritz is ready to retire. This presents a superb opportunity for the right individual to buy the business and take it to even greater heights in the fast-expanding market for Film and Television props.

Interested individuals may contact Fritz at 416-994-0336 or fjlev@rogers.com
