    I see a shirt in the window. Clothes?

    Retro signs from long-since acquired oil companies in America? Oh, wait, someone else said that already.

    Um, how about "Sushi2Go" or running shoes or maybe candy flavored adult toys?

    Do I see skis in the window? I definitely see a t shirt. I'm going with a ski apparel shop?

    Bearette: I'm surprised by the flying horse = gasoline that a logo in the States?! It's not furniture.

    Thao: Well spotted...scroll on for the full answer!

    Janet: I'm still perplexed by the gasoline connection! I'm sure you remember how popular retro metal signs are here! I love how your recent party has influenced your guesses!

    Stepherz: It is an apparel shop...but not for skiing!

    So the correct answer...this shop sells t-shirts, both new and vintage. Thanks for playing!

    Oh, i thought it might be clothes, but i saw little tables in there :( There's some kind of gas in the US that's associated with Pegasus...but I forget what it is. Maybe it's Mobil? It's been a while since I drove :)

    I'd like to think that a shop with such cool decoration sells hope.

    Bearette: Thanks for the explanation! The t-shirts were arranged artfully on the tables. It was a cute little shop - but I didn't take any inside shots as they had "no photos" signs up.

    Janet: Beer and hope...a perfect combo!

    Louise: I think the world really does need a shop that stocks hope...but I'd rather we could borrow some hope and then repay it!

    Here's a link to the mobil gas sign.
