Stores and quirky names !!


One of things that really fascinates me whenever I visit any country are the names of their stores, shops or signs. Especially the translations if its in a foreign language. Here are some of the funny/weird/unusual/cute and even inspirational names I came across in various cities of England.

One thing is for sure ~ All these stores were successful with their naming strategy ! It sure caught my attention just like many others must have also noticed these somewhat odd names.

This was the ultimately funny sign. We visited this tiny fishermens’ village on one of the main sea coast areas of Hastings and found a large sign saying “We don’t sell drugs ” !! Perhaps the residents were highly fed up of people harassing them for drugs.
