Doing what it says on the tin
We all like things that do what they say on the tin. I also like things that say on the tin what they do. Like these shop signs: no guesswork required (unless you're too young to know what a gramophone is).
Locations: the wool shop is in Liskeard, and the radio shop is in Jedburgh.
