    Hi All,
    Glad you like my first attempt at shop displays, I was going for the shanti town – ghetto, lived in look. It was pretty hard to make the letters look faded, torn and worn and a nightmare moving the ladders between those buckets. I followed the customers spec, he wanted something that didn’t look brand spanking new and very similar to what had been on for 50 years. The customer was over the moon with the result saying that it is just the look he was after. In fact it was that popular other shops in the area had been copying his idea and now the whole street looks the same.
    Another job well done I think.
    John

    i think it is clever… i mean, it could be a load of dry-wipe board style and could write the prices of things so people dont need to go in the shop to see the products, then change when needed.

    These shops amaze me

    Absolutely everything under the sun shoved out of the front blocking the pavement (Health & Safety) (Just Kiddin’ :lol1: )…….. and then they need to write down what it is they are selling

    “We know what you’re selling, I’ve just tripped over it!”
