Some Funny Words from the Signals Catalog


Are you familiar with the Signals catalog? They’re a high end doo dad shop and I mean that in the most flattering way--fun, imaginative, inspirational things you don’t need but really want.

Here are some of my favorite sayings from the current catalog:

C’est la vie!
