Font we'd like used for Salt Spring Mercantile is Fontdiner Swanky, or , if funky doesn't work for you, something retroish. IF an animal is to be incorporated into the logo, it would probably be a sheep, as our island is famous for its sheep. However, we won't be selling a lot of lamb:, we have American Black Bellied sheep ourselves. ( So having an animal is not a priority) Our primary products will be speciality foods, with a secondary market in yummy foods, easy to eat, take on the ferry. A fixed mobile food truck kind of cooking, it that makes sense.
The store/cafe is not licensed, so reference to grapes wouldn't make sense.
As Mercantile is not descriptive enough, we definitely want "home and ferry provisions" incorporated into logo, but we wouldn't necessary want the tag line on merchandise.
Salt Spring is a really laid back island, emphasis on fresh and natural, alternative lifestyles. We would like to convey the warmth of a 50's kitchen. Some of the items we will have on display in the store covers the 75 years it existed in that location before.
We started and sold Salt Spring Winery. Here's a link to our label, and a description of island life!
