Signs @ Intramuros

"The Crazy Nun"

Old and new store signs I spotted along Plaza San Luis across the San Agustin Church in Intramuros.  

La Monja Loca (The Crazy Nun) is a few years old,  a store "dedicated to the promotion of all things good and all things Filipino, from vintage postcards and traditional handicrafts", according to its website.  They also sell rare books, traditionally-woven fabrics, paintings of local artists and a bunch of quirky things.

Next door is The Papier Tole Shop---one of the oldest shops in Intramuros selling recycled paper products from dolls to 3-D paintings.

I LOVE "The Crazy Nun" sign. I went to a girl's Dominican boarding school with lots of them. They left a permanent impression on me :-( Then there were the wonderful ones that impacted my life so positively. Great signs this week. genie

Yes, I have know a few nun's in my day that I would -- shall we say, were a bit eccentric. But, I fear the nun's of my school days would have found this sign a bit blasphemous. Especially, located across from a church.

I however see the humor in it and think it is cute.

I always enjoy browsing shops that feature native arts.
