Plant Building Property Tire Window


Got the corner store together, now I just need a parking lot, and I think I'll either paint a name on the awning, or get a decal. Name suggestions are welcome! (Preferably not to long, if I paint it! )

Nice! I LIKE that awning. Especially the ribs showing.
I’d go with decal… even if it’s individual letters for a custom name.

What kind of business were you thinking? And are you opposed to tongue in cheek names such as C.F. Eye Care?

Thanks! Since my layout is basically rural, I'm planning on it being a small market/general store. Right now my layout name is 'tinfoil Valley' because that's what it's covered with a night to keep catzilla off!

Some years back in Pontiac there was a comic book store called “The Store.” A very nice non de script, and semi-humorous name.
“Dad we’re going up to The Store, be back in an hour.”
“What one?!”
“The Store.”
“I heard that, but WHICH store??!”
Lol that happened more than once.

As an alternative to the name on the awning; you could make a yard sign… the type you see at condo entrances. Put the name on that, with pins holding it in the ground. You can easily swap the sign for a different one later.

Thanks for the ideas! If you're referring to pontiac, mi, that's not too far from where I used to live. If that's the case are you still here in the state? Just curious. (Not a stalker! ) 😎
