Any Idea what year this doubled sided porcelain sign might be and what is it worth? I haven't measured it yet but I would guess 4' X 8'. Thanks, for any information.

    Hav-A-Tampa was a cigar factory in Ybor City, FL, my Daddy had the concessions inside the 3 story building. It was torn down when they moved to another site. What do you want to do with this sign?

    What do you want to do with the Hav-A-Tampa sign? I would buy it. Let me know.
    Thank you, Sandy

    Sandy, I would be willing to sell it. What would you offer me for it? Thanks, Glen

    I have no idea. What state do you reside? With the size of it, shipping would be an issue. The sign is a little worn, but having known a lot about the company my heart went out to it. Lots of memories about my Daddy, if you know what I mean? How much did you pay and where did you find it? Would be willing to research with you about it. Let me know. Thank you for replying.

    Sandy, I live just north of Memphis TN. I paid $300.00 for the sign and was wanting @ least $350.00 for it. I know it's a little worn but I think it's rare because I can't locate one like it anywhere eBAY, Craigslist or goggle although I did see a couple of the King Edwards signs the same size and about the same condition for $500.00 ea. Also I just measured it and it's 3' 10" X 6' 10" I would be willing to have it crated & shipped if you think you might interested. Thanks, Glen

    Would be interested if you can hold on to it until I head to FL, could meet somewhere to transfer. Just hate to have to pack something else here. It would not be for a couple of months. It has a lot of meaning to me, and I appreciate you chatting with me. Just let me know. Sandy

    Good Sandy, I don't have a problem holding the sign for you a couple of months but just to assure me that your certain that you want it I would ask that you send me a money order or Paypal for $50.00 Other wise I was going to put it on EBay & Craigslist with a starting price of $400.00
    I really would like to see that you get this sign because it seems to be apart of your family history. I would also ask that you do a search online to see what other signs similar to this are going for to see for yourself what a good price this sign is. Thanks, Glen

    Can't do that. Have to sell stuff here for my move since car accident. Do what you feel best, and thank you for the memories.

    No problem, You can email me back in a couple of months or when things are looking up for you & If I haven't sold it maybe you can still get it. Take care , Glen

    Have you already sold this sign? I realize it has been three years since you posted this but just figured I'd ask.
