YES WE BUY OLD SIGNS


We often get asked if we buy old signs..Yes of course we do... BUT..we have to see pictures of what you have because the condition issue makes a world of difference in price. This is an example of the value placed on condition: 1939 Coca-Cola green version thermometers. One on the left has many chips around outside edges and some on face ..VALUE:$200-$250...The identical thermometer on the right  has two tiny edge chips and ..VALUE is:$2200.00

Yes We Can Ship Large Signs


These images reflect the great care we put into crating large signs for shipment. This was a Rexall Drugs sign that measured 8' X 3' and took several man hours to crate securely and arrived safely.
