Please do your own research as vintage does not necessarily mean original. Note: I was left with a large advertising collection along with some that I have collected over the years & I also attend high end estate sales in the area. I have decided to sell some of our rare and hard to find signs. Please be sure to check out my auctions and add me to your watchlist for more signs in the future.I have taken a lot of time to take pictures and describe these signs the best I can. The starting price is low and without a reserve, this will allow you to get a good deal and tell the community what the current value of these signs are. I have spent a lot of time listing and answering peoples questions, I do not have time to deal with people who decide afterwards they don't want the sign and want to send it back. I really do think people can respect this, and I believe most collectors are really great people. But I must be clear about it to avoid people trying to play games. I HAVE DECIDED TO SELL MY LIFELONG COLLECTION OF SIGNS SO STAY TUNED FOR MORE TO COME.
