Photo Essay – Quaint French Shop Signs

Of all the countries I have visited over the years,  I must say that France displays some of the most creative and colorful shop signs to be found…

~

Care for some fish for dinner? The fishermen are back and La Poissonnerie is open for business!

~

This jewelry artist displays her work on her sign. What a clever idea!

~

I doubt the mailman will deliver your mail on horseback, but welcome to the post office!

~

In need of a trim?

~

This cute little pig invites you to the Charcuterie, which mostly sells pork products… Vegetarian anyone?


~

Old French bicycles often retire as shop signs…

~

This B&B owner hired a local artist to paint his sign and wishes ‘Bienvenue’ to all his guests!

~

How about freshly ground coffee and a good book?

~

Even the public restrooms deserve a sign painted by a local artist!

I hope you enjoyed this walk through quaint French streets. Remember, always look up so you don’t miss a thing!

  1. Quite lovely. You’re quite right about signs in the small towns of France. I spend more time taking photos than shopping in the stores they’re advertising. Do you recall where the post office sign is located?

  2. They are lovely. I sure wish we had this creativity and “constraint” in American signage. Historically, the colonies have had such beauties, but bigger, brighter, louder has prevailed currently, to our detriment.
