All signs point to fascinating Downtown signs

An unnecessary apostrophe is the least of this sign's problems.

A walk through Downtown's Pico Boulevard and Santee Alley provides consumers with a wide variety of fashion and merchandise choices -- and even a wider variety of interesting store names.

On the 400 block of Pico, one store displays the finest styles for children but could use a name change. Just a few blocks away, a bride-to-be can find her dress for the "big day" -- and evidently come out smelling better as well.

One store uses text lingo in its name, another has a whole lot of attitude and one seemingly vacant space is just plain patriotic.

Click through our slideshow to catch a glimpse of all the comical, puzzling, and just plain wacky signage in DTLA. As thorough as our hunt was, we know we may not have spotted every sign worthy of a photo, so please let us know in the comments where your favorite spot is.
