Window shopping lately

December 14th, 2012

Kebab shop that is only open between 9am and 6pm on weekdays, Davos (not sure they quite get the Kebab shop concept)

Halloween display somewhere in Camden Passage

Barrel distortion outside COS in Brighton

Bread rolls and hedgehogs, a classic window display combo for a bakery

Everything in this photo is awful, EVERYTHING, I can’t stop looking at it

Pleasing bin/wall colour clash

Dolls in varying shades of creepiness

Felted animals in the window of Waterstones (from this book, if you’re after your own felt pug)

Fancy wood things? Pretty, niche.

As good inside as it is outside

Mastering the no-bullshit cover, by DIVA

Playing hotel staff seems a little dry, but if that’s what kids are into these days…

    Lovely pictures, and as usual equally awesome commentary. I cannot believe the hotel staff toys. I don’t know if I should laugh or cry.

    Haha, I’m sorry! I just have a very specific irritation for the moustachification of everything recently. Why does everything have moustaches on >:|

    Wonderful photos! I find it interesting that the Playmobil hotel staff toys are part of their “Summer Fun” line…

    some very odd things you’ve been picking up on, very into it. the burger sign doesn’t fit but it’s snazzy.

    I like all your photos–there’s definitely a kitschy, fun theme going on. And those hedgehogs are adorable.
