I did indeed get out of the house yesterday. I took a long walk from Leyton, in East London near the Olympic Park, north to Walthamstow. I found lots of great little shops along the way.
First, this literally Peculiar hair studio. One would think that might be a counterproductive name, but apparently God is looking out for them. I dig the woman with the big 'fro, and what about the giant strawberry? It's all very...well...peculiar!
I found several Romanian shops along this route. Apparently there's a Romanian enclave in that area.
I'm glad the folks at the Shop-Shop-a-Shop are thinking of me!
I have a soft spot for Chinese restaurants, especially with lackadaisical characters hanging around out front.
Looks like someone egged the window -- or maybe the owners figured they'd just get there first.
Now that is an attention-grabbing name.
I haven't a clue what the big sign is supposed to say, but I love the before-and-after shots. That woman on the lower left looks like Cindy Brady. And come to think of it, that might be Jan, upper right.
I have more, too, but I don't want to wear you out! I'll save some for another day!
