;) As life can only be understood backwards, but has to be lived forward, it it mostly afterwards that one discovers ...

I enjoy signs and signs with misspellings are the best! Great shots! Enjoyed :)

Jack said...

Well, at least they have character.

Farmchick said...

A little misspelling always provides some humor. Nice!

Bob Crowe said...

Salon is misspelled too. Coney Island's population is mostly Russian Jewish these days, so what's the impact on Italy?

Randy said...

They're everywhere!

I have a secret ambition to be a roving sign proofreader throughout the "English-speaking" world.

@ Bob Crowe - 'Salone', if a bit old fashioned, was the proper Italian word for a barber shop long before fancier names came from abroad to be misspelled here!

I like 'Stilist'.

Lol, this is so funny, just like the French going American with 'le jean's' or countless other examples!

Kaori said...

heehee! Great finds ;D

Gunn said...

Well, it is the same here, English is used more and more. I hope the owner of the sign "Stylist" will get a stylish new one...

Always fun to point out misspellings. I will sometimes send emails to companies, where I claim to be very upset about the mistakes I see.

EG Wow said...

Hmmm. You have excellent eyes to see mistakes in English, VP!

Beware going public... spelling counts!

Were these shops in Pisa? ;)

Dina said...

Yeah, in USA also. I remember my grandmother would go to the beauty salon.

JM said...

I love this kind of finds. :-)

Francisca said...

Hehe... I must admit to being a bit of a grammar cop myself. Nice finds.
