ampersands on Broadway #5: reverence for the the Old West inside Fancy Tiger Crafts

Fancy Tiger Crafts’ spacious new home at 59 Broadway opened with the new year, and has been decorated inside with retro signage recalling the simplicity & self-reliance of the Old West, including these two classic ampersands; other decor in the new space includes vintage sewing machines, an old windmill, and of course the immensely varied stock of colorful fabrics, yarns, and myriad other craft supplies

(fifth in a series — signage on Broadway may last for decades or a few minutes; focusing on the typographic form of ampersands is both a simple delight and a way to illustrate Baker’s diversity)
