Bubblez Toys and Gifts Gets a Big Ol' Sign on Fifth

It's been about six months since a new gift shop called Bubblez opened up on Fifth Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Streets (across from the school), and apparently their minimal window signage just wasn't cutting it. Owner Sal has installed a new sign, and let's just say that if you didn't know this store existed, you sure do now (which is a good thing, considering AREA Kids moving in up the street).

The space's previous occupant was a women's shoe store called WNDRLND, which forewent a sign in favor of a colorful, stripey design, and needless to say that approach didn't really work out for them.

This new sign will certainly get the message across.

Ugly sign. Fits right in with old-school Fifth Ave.

It is an ugly sign, but, that is a ridiculous statement to make "D"!

Anyway, saw this sign up yesterday or the day before and actually said to myself "hmm, wonder if this will be on "here's park slope", lol

Just my opinion, having walked down Fifth Ave. for more than 20 years, it reminds me of when it was lined with 99 cent stores, greasy Chinese restaurants and, of course, crack vials. That's what I mean by old-school.
There were more than a few gaudy signs in those days.

I think it's safe to conclude that if any storefront undergoes even an iota of change, it'll appear on HPS. Dan certainly is prolific in this regard.

What I remember from 5th Avenue of 20 years ago were bodegas and yes, many many crack vials, lol

I think this is a perfectly OK sign for a little toy store - nothing wrong with it. I'd take this over the stuff on the Bergen St Pintchik row - homogenized tastefulness run amok!
