Greer, SC

Warning: Today’s post is VERY picture heavy. I had planned to use this killer picture taken in Greer for today’s post and realized I have ton of grocery related pictures from all over. I think it’s so interesting to see how different the typography is from city to city. From hand painted ghost signs to 3D lettering. Enjoy the awesomeness!

Big thanks to Doug Dougal for sharing this picture taken in Edinburgh. If it didn’t say fish emporium I’d never have guessed that’s what was being sold:

The next two pictures were taken by my friend Rob Turpin. It’s funny seeing a beautiful ghost sign under a billboard. Thanks Rob for sharing your pictures:

No billboard. Just the way I like it:
