At Wisdom Lane, I make it a point to always have quality items for sale. Some items are extra special and deserve extra attention:
Signage is Hot!
The summer may be cooling off, but sign collecting is heating up.
This 14 ½ inch by 17 ½ inch double sided enamel sign which reads “Fasten Your Seat Belts” and touts Dependable Champion Spark Plugs is a great example of 1968 advertising.
Collectors will overlook dings and bumps (considering them rusty gold) to grab onto a great slogan and hard-to-find product. Color that pops is an added bonus. If you have an empty wall or space in your garage, or need a one-of-a-kind headboard, this area of collecting might just be for you.

You don’t get any better than this in the collectible world: thanks to shows like American Pickers, porcelain signs are quickly becoming one of the most sought-after antiques.
This one-sided Mobilgas gas pump sign, which I recently listed on ETSY, is a perfect way to get in on the craze.
Most of the porcelain signs I run into are so big, they literally need an 18-wheeler to transport, and a barn to hang on. But at 12 ½ by 12 inches—that’s inches, not feet—this Mobilgas sign is the perfect way to begin collecting signs. It would make a great addition to a garage, or over a bar, a little boy’s room, or in a man cave.
A pump featuring a similar Mobilgas sign recently sold at a Barrett-Jackson auction for $5700.If you’re in the market for a Christmas present for the man or car enthusiast in your life, or know someone who is restoring an old gas pump, this sign is for you. Head over to ETSY and get a good look.
As for the window for the coupon code that I had ready to give to the person with the best answer for the Forbes silver item that I needed help with, it's now closed. You can still help out with giving a guess on what it could possibly be! Any help is gladly welcome.
