ABC Wednesday "D" is for 'dangerous'

Isn't this a lethal-looking display? I took this photo on a Sunday when this "oštrač" (sharpener's) shop was closed. I love the sign that reads (literally translated) "Sharpener of tailor's and hairdresser's scissors." Just below that it reads "manicure." Hmm.... I think I'd prefer to go to the salon a few doors down.

Dangerous is a great word for the letter D.

A very sharp post :). Window with an ax, clever - and left in the window. Goes to show, it's not something that a merchant would risk leaving in the window here.
I like the meat grinder. I remember useing those when my mom made sarma, punjene paprike, ajvar.

Interesting "D" post.

That is how I like about European city. We will never able to find a place to sharpen knief,scissors, etc. in an American shopping mall. In Taipei, I can still find one but I need to go to the traditional market or old part of the town.

That's funny.
I think he had trouble finding the right "padez" for "manikir" scissors :)

tee hee i agree.

Bibi said...

Hi, Anonymous Branka! I was wondering if any Serbian-speaker would notice this! He could have put 'manikirskih' and made it all clear and not worrisome! :>)

Chuck Pefley said...

Does give "finger-nail clipper" a whole new meaning -:)

Kris said...

People used to go around sharpening things on the back of little carts didn't they?

That'd be an interesting job.
