  1. AnythingObscure, Yup! It looks very much like the old Stude logo letter, but doubt that it has anything to do with them. U may have seen an early Studebaker sign we posted with a very similar first ...
  2. RichmondLori, I have no idea. Just a great porcelain sign related to oil/gas. Would like to know more about the company but not sure how?
  3. Trey, Agreed. This guy owns the antique store in Albequerque and advertises a lot on Facebook. Long drive to get to him and rip off when u get there. Caution!
  4. Trey, Exactly my feelings. My wife is scared of kids throwing balls etc! Disaster!
  5. Trey, These are both 42” I think. Both came from same guy and were fair priced
  6. Trey, Can’t remember where I got this one but it was a long time ago and I didn’t pay much. Lucky me!
  7. Trey, I’m a Picker by blood! I love hunting stuff. Always have!
  8. Wow! U find the best of the best!
  9. Trey, Interesting how some Companies are trend setters while they have certain individuals as Staff that run the show. Other Companies managed to destroy the creativity of the great companies they p...
  10. Trey, Hard stuff to find where u are. Union was West Coast.
  11. Dave2no1, U got me on the crack proof motor oil. Never heard of it. I mostly just have the common signs and very few smaller signs. Likely thwt would.d be on a smaller sign. We almost exclusively had...
  12. Dave2no1, Yes and no. Hard to be very organized with so many different companies. We have tried to put the same Brands next to each other as possible. We have a Texaco wall next to a Red Indian wall ...
  13. Trey, Good question. I edited the story to give the answer in case others are curious. I have some Anderson Pritchard signs as well and they are much more colorful.
  14. Trey, Isn’t hindsight revealing? Fortunately I think we already have enough signs gathered up in storage to fill this new Event Center so we don’t have to pay the crazy prices of today with the new ...
  15. Trey, If anybody can, u can! Finding one is not impossible! Ours has a storybook tale that still fills my mind with excitement when I think about all the unlikely, improbable, events that took place...
  16. Flashlarue, There’s also a great Sparkys Burgers in Hatch NM that belongs to a friend. Great food and Malts. Soon there will be one in Provo UT at the Event Center. :)
  17. Trey, Can’t wait to get the place done but unfortunately it’ll be a long while as we haven’t even started on the hard parts of the building yet.
  18. Another fabulous find that I should have in our new Event Center. Happy New Year!
  19. Wow! Another impossible find! More amazing is that your wife was involved in getting it!
  20. Another magnificent find! Very hard to find an awesome sign like that! Big Christmas score!
  21. Lori, Actually I remember the Fuller Brush Man as well and believe that likely most women were not in to door to door sales in those days. Lots of good reasons for leaving that job to the men of the ...
  22. Trey, I’m killin myself trying to get the building done and hesitant to put a lot of signs in before it’s finished as they will just get dirty as we finish walls and floors. Hope to have interior wal...
  23. Clockerman, Thx for the Love it. Actually my son and I ran across a Sparkys Burger cafe in New Mexico when we were on a Picking trip. It’s in Hatch and run by a very nice guy who is a collector himse...
  24. RichmondLori, Cute Lori! U have to wait till July 4th and come to the family celebration. I’ll cook the burgers.
  25. MJNJ, Thx for the update. You’ve assured me that I found a very old and cool item and now I even know what it is and was used for. Awesome!
  26. Trey. Im not sure exactly what it is? It’s made out of a pre plastic material of some sort and is double sided but the ad runs in different directions so u got to choose which side to display. Likel...
  27. EJW-54 Hard to find porcelain and it’s overpriced with the Biden pesos.
  28. RichmondLori, Thx Lori. Glad to see I’m not alone in love and reverence for family and friends. When hobbies can strengthen memories and relationships it enhances the hobby one more giant step. Happy...
  29. Valentino97, Nope, I don’t know. That’s why I’m asking for some info. It does look like it might be some sort of stencil maker contraption but who knows?
  30. AnythingObscure, Correct on the 1”letters.
  31. Another very very cool find!
  32. Awesome. Maybe give me a call to compare info? Lakeside Storage in Provo.
  33. Wow! What an awesome find! U gotta be thrilled with that one!
  34. Fantastic find! Don’t u ever run out of $$$? This stuff is never cheap anymore. It’s not only hard to find but hard to buy at today’s inflated prices. Crazy world we live in where dollars have become...
  35. Waaaaaaay too much cool stuff in that building! Doesn’t pass fire standards. U need to send some of it to me! Especially those big old signs just getting in your way. :):)
  36. I had no idea Bonniville Salt Flats was that famous back in the 20s? Incredible find!
  37. Ringo76, Sorry but we collect and don’t sell. I’m always looking for more to add to our collection. We have traded but don’t even do that much.
  38. It looks waaaaay to cool to be in your basement and needs to be repurposed in our museum.:):)
  39. Great score! No wonder I can never find any cool stuff! U get there first! :):)
  40. Great score! Put it in the kitchen!
  41. I love your cool collection! I’ve pretty much quit even hunting Coke stuff as u have completely bought up the entire World market and there’s nothing left for us Bottom Dwellers. I’d love to come see ...
  42. Wow! U never cease to amaze me with the cool finds u keep making! Nice score once again!
  43. Getting harder to find the 6’ ssp dog ear Gulf signs these days. U scored once again! Great find!
  44. Ms.CrystalShip, Thx for the advice. My wife has to eat a green leafy salad daily so I put something together that isn’t boring with the fruits we grow or buy at Costco. Yes we use organic Baby Spinac...
  45. I love old stuff and can clearly see that u do too! Can’t ever find too much!
  46. I luv that sign! I have a 1930 Stude Erskine and need a sign like that.
  47. Trey, Hard to believe anyone has enough $$ to order something like this built! Amazing to me. Us Bottom Dwellers impress easily!
  48. Trey, Of course it’s porcelain and they’re all keepers to me! Can’t get too many!
  49. Bobby725, Maybe buy a cheap trailer for $100 on Craigslist and pull wheels off wagon and stack on it and haul it with u. It’ll be cool in the Museum!
  50. Blunderbuss2 Thx for another luv it
