GREAT HAND-DRAWN SIGNS (LIKE THIS ONE) PULL PEOPLE INTO STORES
What's cuter than a pup crossing days off a calendar? This sign is perched outside of Papel New York in Cobble Hill.
The most eye-catching signs are the ones done with chalk and a skilled set of hands.
Lots of stores in our neighborhood use the medium now, and it looks homemade and professional at the same time.
Out in front of The Housing Works Book Cafe in SoHo, there is a sandwich board out front that displays chalk drawings of narwhals - the unicorn-y whales - accompanied by speech bubbles to advertise what's going on inside.
Intriguing? Inviting? You bet.
