Awhile ago I looked at the rarity of the word "novelties" on city signage. Now, it's even more scarce. One of the prime examples has vanished.
In the flower district, from this floral supply store, NOVELTIES has been torn from the sign above the plate-glass window.
Parts of the facade are plywooded and a scaffold casts it in shadow. It's hard to say for sure, but this floral supply shop may be vanishing, too, with its window full of glitter pine cones, spools of ribbon, and green bricks of floral foam all covered in dust.
