In a way I think this falls under the marketing umbrella because it relates to the image of one's shop. In a thread on the "Warped" forum somone mentioned having such a sign posted. I have gone back and forth on the issue. Several other businesses near here have signs saying, "No Food or Drink",and it makes sense to me. I can also certainly understand what prompts people to post the ones that say "Children left unattended will be sold into slavery." I'm wondering how the rest of you feel about such signs. I have resisted posting such because I want the shop to be welcoming but I'm starting to wonder (as I wait for the spot cleaner on the carpet to dry)if that need is outwieghed by the need to keep the shop clean and safe for artwork. I'm not sure the first image I want to present to be of what you're not allowed to do here. Also, I'm located across the street from a Starbuck's and next door to a place that calls itself a "Sandwich and Coffee Bar" people have to walk right past my shop to get to the parking lots. Many of them take the opportunity to stroll through. If I forbid drinks I'll lose foot traffic. What are your thoughts?
