Förvaring av fiskeredskap i en röd liten sjöbod på kajen. Pittoreskt inslag eller bara vardag för en öbo?

Storage of fishing equipment in a little red shed on the quay. A picturesque image, or just an everyday sight for an islander?

Reversed a Rea

It’s not always easy to get letters around the right way. Swedish shops advertise clearance sales either with the English word “sale”, or with this abbreviation of the French “réalisation” (though obviously “rea” should be spelt without the a reversed). The shop is Mouche on Västrahamngatan. Photo taken yesterday morning.

Above: A window display of candles, mirrors and crystal antiques on Haga Nygatan. Not the same antique shop as in yesterday’s photo.
Below: A detail from a neighbouring window with a remarkably happy looking porcelain figure of what I take to be Bacchus.

As my last photo for 2013, I can’t resist sharing this last Christmas window display from a toy shop on Haga Nygatan – dolls dressed as Lucia (with crown) and a stjärngosse (star boy – the one with the conical hat) on a sleigh pulled by a deer with a snowman behind.

Happy New Year, everyone!

The window of a bicycle sales and repair shop on Haga Nygata. You can only see into the shop through this window when it’s dark out and the lights are on inside.
