*merceria = haberdashery

Beautiful old school neon haberdashery sign in Arzua, Galicia:


More lovely graphics in the form of the sign for Trigas Ferretería (Ironmongers) that also doubles as a tourist shop as Arzua is for many pilgrims the last stopping point before the day long trek and culmination of the Camino de Santiago (into Santiago de Compostela)



the joy of good graphics…

Love this bar sign for Bar Luis in the small Galician town of Arzua, beautiful economy of graphic design, been the same for a good 40 years or more.
