The shop that never was.

By franken
I know I said that I can't be bothered to go through my archives for something to upload but this one sort of jumped out at me this morning.

Taken in Cardiff, the shop never opened and is now something different.

Converted to mono via Serif Photoplus.

That kind of advertising thoroughly deserves to be brought down to earth. Give me reality every day, especially as portrayed by you!

Quote:The Cardiff store was set to be one of the first regional Ed Hardy stores in the UK. Ed Hardy had a London store located in Westfield Shopping centre but unfortunately that closed during the summer of 2010 when the Australian arm of the company went into administration.
Oh I love Google. You would have had 'tattoo-inspired fashion', just think what Cardiff has missed out on!
As Joline says, this is classic you.
