London's Most Londony Shop Signs

Here are some of the finest examples of shop signs in London, the capital of this nation of shopkeepers. Typos and spelling mistakes aside, you've got to give credit to the oddball sarcasm and downright hostility that spews forth. London is a city where you can buy pretty much anything in the world... including many thousands of things you really can't imagine anyone wanting.
