signs of the times
slippery when wet and pepsi sign are no longer available.
No, I'm not referring to the song by Prince whats his name. Signs have become a great decorating technique or just a way to express opinions or create a fun theme. We meet lots of people who are looking for specific items such as porcelain kitchen signs (those are hard to find!) Or some want beer related types, whether they light up or have clocks or advertise a particular brand. We have had lots of folks looking to make their laundry rooms more fun or guys trying to decorate their "manrooms" ( some are taking exception to the term mancave and can't say I blame them----boring) Anyway, whatever your ideas , signs are fun, colorful, come in many sizes and can make a statement if you're trying to make one! Many dealers in particular antique shops are specializing in this collectible. One shop to check out in Mpls is Hunt and Gather which has some awesome examples.
