Round Top Signs

After I washed the dust off my feet,
loved on my family,
and said goodbye to my last three puppies,
I fell asleep.
A good long sleep.
The next morning
I began to sift through our weekend and the gazillion photo's
I had taken.
What better way to start than with my favorite things...
Wooden signs

Oh the worn wood and aged paint had my head a' spin'in
Not to mention the $675.00 price tag.
But I must remember that these are the real deal
The Real McCoy
Vintage at it's best!
LOVED THIS ONE!!!
This Vintage Trade Sign dated back to the 1800's
Now that's what I call Vintage!
$1288.00 was just a bit out of my range..sigh~
Love the font on this one.
I cant tell you how hard it was to leave this garage sign behind.
The patina on this baby was wonderful!
There were so many signs
and so little time...
What sign was your favorite?
I cant wait to show you the next collection
I'm in love with.
XOXO Susie~

  1. These are all wonderful signs...way out of my price range! I could add making a very large sign to my ever growing project list. Of course at this rate it could take years!

  6. All of the signs are fantastic, Susie! I had no idea vintage signs went for this much! I just did a post on signs...a great girl hand paints them and I ordered two. They aren't vintage but I love them!

  10. Aww, you said goodbye to the puppies. I bet that was hard!

    The signs are fabulous! I think my favorite is the "druggists" sign. I really like how the paint is worn on it!

    Can't wait to see what else you found!

  11. Those are awesome. My mouth fell open when you revealed the price! It is too hard to choose which one I love the most.

  12. I would take any one of these signs and happily find a home for it. Man, they are costly, aren't they?

    Glad you had fun.

  13. Great signs, Susieness! You know what? I'll bet you could do these with your tiny eyes closed and I'll bet you will.
    Thanks for popping in and hope you had a great Easter.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. 40 years with a signwriter, who still writes signs by hand, I do appreciate that people are now falling in love, once again, with hand-written signs....Long live the brush!!!

  15. The Palmer's Candy sign was my favorite for sure!! I love it!

  16. Oh you must have been in heaven! Such great inspiratio. I like the first one - especially for the curved type on the 2nd line of the first sign. All those letters in a straight line wouldn't be nearly as attractive. Gotta love those ol' timey sign painters.

  27. Wow, those are great! If I could afford one like that, I would hang it in my kitchen. *sigh* There is a sign on an old textile warehouse by me that I drool over every time I drive by. I've had it in my head to call the real estate company to see if they will contact the owner and ask if I could buy it. But I can't get the nerve up to do it! They'd probably think I'm crazy.

  37. As funny as it may sound, I like the "Druggists" sign the best, probably because it's from the 1800's. I think I was born in the wrong century! LOL!
