    I received my new favorite sign today, a sweet 1927 cardboard beauty with metal frame. Tip of the cap to TGBWC, who recognized the potential of this opportunity and provided the lead. So I purchased it from a nice lady who had picked it up at an estate sale, after it came out of a barn in Henderson, Tennessee. Condition is very good and colors still pop. It's a fantastic piece of art. The bottle graphic is very detailed. Ray reports these signs were temporary, displayed at fairs, ballparks, outdoor events in the 1920s-30s, so not many survive. I'll have it properly framed. In the meantime, it hangs over the bed in our spare bedroom downstairs. Looks pretty good there, may have to make it permanent in that spot!

      Thanks Guys for the nice comments. My dad is here tonight and I've been giving him the tour. Last time he was here, two years ago, I had 4 signs. Usually we travel up north to see him, but we're lucky he's a Snowbird, so getting a chance to spend some time with him before he goes back to Florida. It's been fun sharing this stuff with him, he actually seems impressed. Well, this latest acquisition is definitely one for the books. Poor TGBWC, I'm wearing out his e-mail with Thank You's. :)
