Orchard Street...

We made a quick stop in Manhattan on the way back from Coney Island and headed to Orchard Street.

I'd been in that area before but never down Orchard Street - we were there for a beer shop, but we spotted some hidden gems along the way...

 There were some great old weathered posters on the wall of the Flower Girl shop - layers and layers of old drinks adverts, all bleached by the sun and peeling away, leaving really interesting textures and pieces of letters.

The Flower Girl sign was beautiful too, the gold letters were engraved in the wood and shining brightly in the sun. I'd seen this sign on some blogs but I had no idea where it was, so it was a really nice surprise to stumble across it with Tom.
