Sales stickers & stuff

Sales are everywhere in Greece and so are the sales decs. Loud, tempting, bright, pop, brave or even silly. I find there's something about them. Here's what's out at the moment:

The straight forward approach.

The baroque approach.

The 3D approach.

The oldskool approach.

Putting your cards on the table (window) approach.

The spell-it-out-for-you approach.

The tag-for-the-short-sighted approach.

The elegant approach.

The circling the prey approach.

The we-do-not-go-for-stickers, curtain approach.

The we-totally-go-for-stickers, full window approach.

The sinking approach.

And the winning detail:

This one would be totally lost in translation for the non-Greek readers. I guess it's something like making a card to wish someone "Merry Christmas" and instead of spelling out "merry", you stick the face of a person named Mary - kindergarden humour, I know:)
