Modern Hand-Painted Signs in Lviv, Part II

I've been seeing more and more establishments use their facades to list the products that they sell or services that they provide, the old-school way. I particularly like it when the items are listed in several languages, as used to be done in Lviv before WWII. Before the languages used were  Polish, Yiddish, and German, and rarely Ukrainian. Now it's Ukrainian, English, and sometimes Polish and German as well.

This is a continuation of my first such post
I think some are hand-painted, others stenciled. I like the trend.
