An’s Dry Cleaning: A shop with a sense of humor!

Hats off (or shirts off?) to this charming gelato shop on Adams Avenue! Love the tongue-in-cheek on display here. Thank you for restoring a classic piece of mid-century mercantilism…and then turning it on its ear. This could have been awarded for historic preservation… but that would sound stuffy. Signage is great, ironing boards and florescent fixtures are clever, shirts in plastic are priceless. Smart. Pressed. Spotless. Well done, An’s!
