Before Apple Stores were the glistening tech wonderlands that they are today, independent retailers like the Tekserve store in Manhattan were the primary purveyors of computing equipment. But now that Apple Stores and other large tech retailers have a grip on the market, the indy stores have no choice but to shutter their windows, and the Tekserve store is going out in style.
The tiny store managed to maintain for as long as it did thanks to its veritable museum -- replete with glass cases and placards -- of historic Apple paraphernalia. As part of its closing sale, the Tekserve store is auctioning off these piece.
One of the most notable items of tech history in the museum is a classic Macintosh 128K signed by Steve Wozniak.
