drink

I was quite taken with this sign
in a little town in cottage country














then I took a better look and discovered 
the other sign
but really, one should take a step back and look at the big picture
your one stop shopping experience!
(and yes, I really did take 3 pictures!)

This is on of the advantage of living in rural Ontario. Buy your booze, mix and snacks all in one store. You can't do that in cities.

i usually take multiple shots as well.

Only in small-town Ontario! ;)) (You can do one-stop shopping here in East Gwillimbury, by the way.)

RedPat said...

All of us Ontarians know what you are getting at with this one. It is so civilized to one stop shop rather than go to 3 different places. I am lucky in that I can walk to all 3!

That is funny to have both the LCBO and Beer Store together! Added to the general store just makes sense, when you think about it.
Thanks for your participation in signs, signs.

Nora said...

I dont know what an LCBO agency is so the joke is lost on me.

Dianne said...

be dry and wet at the same place :)
love the way you set this up

Pat said...

I'm with Nora...the LCBO joke went right over MY head! Ha ha! But I DO like the Canada Dry sign!

VioletSky said...

@Nora & Pat and anyone else - the LCBO is the name of the liquor store in Ontario. both the liquor and beer stores are government controlled.

This storefront is wo quaint and charming, I would have taken at least 3 shots, too. Love them. So colorful and vintage looking. genie

Halcyon said...

Funny! It did look more quaint when you cropped it. :)

Great collection of signs!

Very nicely presented. Thank you for watching my sign video. I am with you, I do not like the swish swishing of clothing while hiking or at anytime for that matter. Natural fabric for me thank you.

I'll have a Molson Canadian please.

Looks like a quaint one-stop shop!

Say Canada Dry, think ginger ale. See that very seldom in Asia. :-)

Hysterical. Love your lay out here, pulling back a little further each time, what fun. I agree, I love the Canada Dry sign, is it because it harkens back to my childhood? or is it just a great logo, and a nice clean sign.

Great shots!
