Tuesday's parting signage shot

Photos by Stacie Joy 
Signage went up today at the new home of East Village Buyers at 39 Avenue A between Second Street and Third Street. 

The high-end consignment shop specializing in sneakers, jewelry and other collectibles moved here in April... given that the awning inspection and approval process was onerous (and expensive), owner Gabe Shaulov decided to do the lettering himself. 

Meanwhile, he put in an X-Men vs. Street Fighter machine... free for people to enjoy while their friends shop.
Bonus tip: Don't go up against Gabe in X-Men vs. Street Fighter — he will win.

Really appreciate that hand painted sign. Old school and much more inviting than all the vinyl printed and plastic letter signs that now dominate. Too bad businesses don't seem to appreciate how much a hand painted sign can add to the neighborhood much less distinguish a place from all the mall like bland signs.
