No worries Lummox, I know USA stuff isn't that collectable here, but I like these 2 iconic Yankee signs.

 I do not collect signs, but I work with a guy who does...

...drove over to his house out in the boondocks so we could ride together for a job we had for the week in New Orleans. He loves the porcelain signs and has a decent collection.

 

Took a few pix of his barn:

 

 

Also had a very interesting experience by accompanying him on a pick on our way back to Georgia  --- he had got a tip earlier from a family member of someone who had a few signs collected by a late husband but hurricane winds + tree fall had damaged the barn so she had taken them down and wanted to sell them --- so we stopped off in Alabama to have a look and he ended up buying a 7' 2" big Texaco "tomahawk" sign which we strapped down on top of his truck!

 Indeed he does.

I doubt I'll ever get into the sign collecting game, but I appreciate learning and he's taught me quite a bit just by talking about them.

Sad irony is that the sign he was actually interested in (Pure brand) she would not sell due to sentimental reasons, so he settled on the Texaco.

He's in the process of getting a new house and will have to build a new barn to display his colletion, however since he's moving to a more urban area they will be on the inside. His wife thinks he is mad and wasteful with his silly hobby and gives him constant grief about it...

 

...that Texaco sign turned out to be a good conduit for proving a point to her because it is too large for him to keep although he laments letting it go --- anyway, the sign was sold before we got home, matter of fact it sold within 2 hours on some Facebook marketplace thingy --- he bought it for $400 and sold it for $1,800!!! Blew my mind how quickly it sold and the price it fetched.

And with that he proved a very good point to his wife and now will enjoy much better graces from her I'd imagine!

I've owned a few off this list. The Breinigs is new to me, I quite like it. I'd give my left nut for that Old Dutch Cleanser
