8 Edgy Valentine’s Day Store Windows

By on January 26, 2013 – Updated on September 7, 2013

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Get ready for an explosion of hearts, roses, and cutesy teddy bears in every store aisle and window you pass. The whole world is ready to be bursting with hearts and cuteness and pink — everything. Even if you enjoy Valentine’s Day, it can all start to feel like a little bit too much.

A few hip stores have put up window displays that celebrate the season  but also try to steer away from the cliche. They put a more edgy spin on the classic romantic holiday and push the boundaries a bit. Here are 8 of our favorite edgy Valentine’s Day store windows:
