So I went out of town about 30 miles today, to a little area called Carter's Creek, near a railroad track. This older lady had this property
that had a bunch of older things from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s.
I walked in and couldn't believe what I saw! This sign was in her husband's old barn that they are tearin down shortly. Buried a third of the way under the ground but inside and protected from the sun was this porcelain Lollipop sign. It had been planted there for at least 50 years the woman told me. I was in shock then while tryin to keep my poker face, I said the words, "So what are ya thinkin on this sign?" My hand never stopped holdin on to it! She stood there a minute and said "awwww, you can have it for 65 bucks I guess." I said I would give her $50, she took it! I'm still stunned and shocked that I own it and that I could still find a double sided porcelain sign like this in someone's barn, buried in the dirt!
This makes 2 that I own now but this one will go where my other one stands and my wife says she wants the other one to come upstairs, into the family room. This sign has much better paint on it.
Although the Tenn. Enamel MFG 1939 stamp is not readable.
Great day Pickin!
And here it is in the Cave!
