From a roadside store off of California Hwy 1 on the central coast, the sign says…
But actually, the shells came mostly from ONE part of the world…the Philippines
The sign says “wind chime Pangasinan w/ pink” but the wind chimes are bundled up in a plastic bag, while the eerie puff/spiny dried fish with big eyes are the prominent items on the shelf (Pangasinan is a province in the Philippines). Look at the eye on the fish to the right, in the plastic bag.
The sign also said ORGANICS but instead I found soup, baby food (??t?) nuts and, uh, no organics that day…
The shells for sale are on the lower shelf.
So how about a star fish, and by the way, maybe some dried fruit, too?
A basket pack of mix shells from the Philippines, and oh yes, do we need pasta and lentils this week?
This is indeed a strange “Sea Shell” store!
And here are photos of signs I found for sale at the Moss Landing Antique Faire last year.
I used the above gas sign photo for a recent post on which countries pay the highest and cheapest gas per gallon. One never knows when a photo will come in handy for a blog post (these photos were from my phone camera).

Lastly, do you know why this sign was above the toilet inside a stall at a Chinese / Vietnamese restaurant (spotted in San Jose, California)?
