A bit of fun

I love "street humour" (intended or otherwise) as I drive about. Little things that bring a smile to your face are worth celebrating. Here are one or two I've spotted this week. First an Osteopath in Oakham. Once I'd spotted the sign I understood but was initially taken aback to see a spine in a cottage window!

Next, a barbers shop in Burton Joyce village, Nottingham, very full of its own self importance and determined to be noticed : "The Tonsorial Emporium". Not only does it has the impressive sign there are several canvases showing off the skills of the barbers hung around the outside of the building.

Finally "Junk and Disorderly" in Uppingham, Leicestershire. What a great name for a little junk shop.

Question : why do antique shops always have a chair outside the door? I know that's how we know there is an antique shop but where did the practice originate?


  1. Fun

  2. Hi, Thanks for your comment. Love your blog. Look forward to meeting you in the shop next time you visit Devon. I can see that we have lots of similar interests when it comes to collecting:)
