What did medieval shop signs look like?

A sign outside of shops in the medieval periods had imprints on them that showed people what the person in the shop did for a living. Simple and basic signs had to be used since very few people could read or write. These medieval shops also doubled as a home for the craftsman that worked there, hence the signs were movable.
