AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Almost French

This little shop is away from the main shopping area of Dromana and, with 4 other little shops, faces a reserve.
Strange sign, strange shop in a strange place

The sign is split in a yin and yang style

I adore French cooking, and love French table linens with the blues and yellows. I think I would probably be a happy camper in this shop. It is an unusual sign, but guess it gets its message across to its potential customers. Genie

I'm not much of a shopper but the strange sign would tempt me to go in at least once just to see what they carry. So I guess it works.

Almost that like "a little bit pregnant?" Ha ha! I have to admit, the sign would entice me to have a peek inside!

I love the font they use in Almost French.

Clytie said...

A very curious sign indeed - I too would be tempted to go in just to see what "almost" French is!

Lynette Killam said...

A shop sign with questions indeed, but lt seems to get everyone's attention! Curiosity is a great motivator...

Luna Miranda said...

"Almost French" has a good name recall.:p their merchandise must be for those who has French taste but couldn't afford the genuine article.:p

Francisca said...

Oh Pat, you beat me to it! But maybe I could be considered "almost French" with about 1/2 of my blood being French and Corsican... :-D Strange they did not capitalize French...
