Which reminds me of a bad joke...
Guy is walking through town, discovers his watch is broken. A little while later he passes a window with watches and clocks in the window.
He goes in to find a little old Jewish man behind a desk.
"Can you fix my watch", he asks
"Fix your watch?" says the old guy, "I'm a mohel!"
The old guy goes on to explain that mohel is a man who does ritual circumcisions for the Jewish faith.
Puzzled now, the guys asks, "If you're a mohel, then why do you have all those watches and clocks in the window?"
And the mohel replies; "What you want I should put in the window?"
I hope it illustrates my point that whatever you put in the window will be associated with the business behind it. I wouldn't want to field questions about why I have cookies in the window after telling someone I'm a lawyer.
I can't speak for anyone else, but it may be common on the other side of the pond, but simply strikes me as odd, here in Canada.
