  2. I like the 99% off sign the best. 🙂

    Love the “store hours” sign. If my wife ran a retail shop, those would be her hours — and that’s exactly how she’d post them!

  4. Awesome – love ‘possibly open.’ I’ve been listening to Wayne Dyer lately, and he talks about the difference between how the signs outside businesses in Hawaii are worded so differently than businesses on the ‘main land’ – there is a stark contrast in tone that really makes a huge difference in perception. Thanks for the reminder of how fun the world can be if we stop taking it all so seriously. 🙂

  5. Count me in as a person who, if I had a store, would post the hours in “ish time”…

  6. Awesome pictures today! Sometimes pictures can say so much in our world. Very powerful message. Thanks for sharing!

    We used to have an auto mechanic like that. He’d put up a sign that said–gone for parts– that was for people he didn’t know. Those who knew him went around the corner and knocked on his kitchen door.

    I liked the Possibly Open sign, almost invites you to try your luck! 🙂

  9. Good stuff. Who knew that something as simple and mundane as a “store hours” sign could work so effectively as an extension of your brand / biz personality? Lifes all about the little things. 🙂

    “Possibly Open”. Love it. Mine might say “Possibly Awake”.

  10. Reminds me of the restaurants that their hours are 11-close. Whenever that is.

    Proud and pleased to see three signs are from our independent, creative neighbors in Santa Monica. Great blog–glad I found you!

  12. Awesome – I’m going to have to get a copy of sign #2. The building we are in had to drill a mail slot in our door because our team is out of the office too much and that’s the only way we can get our mail.

  13. Aaah, yes, the first one is right near my house. I took a pic of it the other day and posted it to Facebook. Probably received more comments than anything else I’ve ever posted. Perhaps there’s a longing for something that’s missing in the world? I may make my own wall hanging for it. Glad that you shared it!

    Great post Johnathan.

    The problem isn’t that some of these businesses are huge. The problem is they aren’t engaging with their employees and customer base in more meaningful ways.

    This is going to hurt them as the we become more and more connected in the future.

    So, we won’t see these signs, not until it’s too late.
