butchers put weird objects in their window, after closing? Is it because the window would look bare without the meat? Or is there some cookie story behind it?

Sorry for the delay, mylot wouldn't let me post last night, so I gave up. That would be great if you could find out. Then it got me thinking, about what bizarre things my brain thinks about in its spare time!

Butcher Shop Window - Butcher Shop window
I am not sure of this one peizli, and I searched everywhere I could to find an answer. DRAT. A friend's father was a butcher when they were growing up and she said that every day after school and when the butcher shop closed, they had to remove all the meat into the coolroom, and then wash the display cabinet, as well as the window. She didn't say anything about a display, but perhaps it has something to do with the windor not looking bare as you suggested. t would be great if we could find out though. Because I could not find an empty, but decorated, butcher's shop window I will give you one full of meat peizli. LOL

Thanks for trying. Right, now I have time on my hands I am on a mission. I have about three down my street, but I am going to Vic Market on Thursday, an abundance of butchers. If no one knows there well, I will continue to miffed, or it means nowt. Will keep you posted. Cheers.

I don't really go past butcher's shops after they close, but I will see if I can find out for you by actually asking the local butcher why they do it. What sort of weird things do you mean?

hi there BELMC, just objects they seem to differ so thats why I can't work it out, some might be animals, I've seen dogs, so its not about the meat.
