WOW Dave’s PATTIE’S SHOP

in #jahm9 months ago

They say a picture is worth
a thousand words. This photo
is worth at least double that.
Meet Dave. This guy is the
real deal. His all-inclusive
‘Seven-Eleven Store’
is set up on the ROADSIDE
on the main thoroughfare,
‘Norman Manley Blvd.’
in NEGRIL, JAMAICA.

Dave staked out his little bit of real estate under the canopy of a shade tree. I’d say he didn’t pay rent here.
It would be considered squatters rights. He was there first; first come, first serve. For sure he didn’t carry all his wares home on a daily basis. It would be safe to say that Dave’s business was also his homestead.

Not an ordinary stop and shop, but a real life endeavor. Can you dig it?
Take the time to ENLARGE this photo. Notice his signage.
It READs.....
WOW Dave’s PATTIE’S SHOP
Notice the art work, reading material, herbal medicine, shells, jars,
(of who knows what -only Dave knows) fresh fruits,
Dave’s ITAL fruit and juices sign
and who knows what else was hidden- it’s mystical. One can only guess.

We were strolling down the sidewalk
and I just had to stop and check out the uniqueness of it all. It screamed STOP, it screamed Jamaica, it screamed check me out, it screamed s-irie.

Definitely a one of a kind, original Jamaican treasure. You talk about putting your mark on something.
Dave did, this is his livelihood.
Visit NEGRIL and check out the scene. It’s cosmic and o’ so colorful.
It’s the CARIBBEAN.

Respect,
s-irie

Did not try paddies from Dave. Was heading into the center of town
and stopped at the bakery where the paddies were freshly made.
Nothing like hot fresh out of the oven cooking. Dave was just a teaser,
to get the appetite going.

I totally feel you, no way I will pass by a place like that without wanting to branch, just see those juicy coconots....will be soul refreshing. Nice to meet Dave.

Wow, it has more variety than Amazon, a whole confetti of goods to sell, a fruit that tastes like reggae art, a whole character of the area.

Greetings, brother.

Not as complicated as Amazon. Dave sole employee.


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

I know, my friend, when I said I had more variety than Amazon, I was just kidding,


Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded
