Here's Your Warrenton Sign!

My friends all know I have a THING for SIGNS!  Especially Coca-Cola and Dr. Pepper signs. And they need to be OLD!  But those are generally very costly so I don't have many....most just pictures of signs. 
Warrenton didn't fail me on COOL signs.  I would love to have bought this Coca-Cola sign, but it would have set me back several hundred dollars. Which isn't a BAD price, just not in my budget right now.
Warrenton is full of interesting booths and fun and funky signs directing us to those booths!  What's not to love about Gaudy AND Chic!  Not a thang............
The sign is from a favorite booth .....Texas Trash and Treasures.  They also have a very cool store in the itty bitty town of Carmine, on Hwy 290...It's the Big Turquoise Building.  For the past few antique shows they've had a photo contest.  The contest is to take pictures of all the happening at Warrenton and then send them to the Texas Trash and Treasures.  Last year I was one of the lucky winners and won a $50 gift certificate for just taking pictures.  HOW COOL!

Hmmmmmm......see anything wrong with this picture?  I'm not an English teacher....I'm just sayin'!!!!!
And who didn't grow up eating Sunbeam bread?  This metal sign was in optimum condition.
And here I am taking home ANOTHER sign from  Texas Trash and Treasures.  I guess I'm just an old Hippie....I LOVED the hand on the sign, giving the Peace Sign!
This was our final "SIGN" that the wonderful shopping trip was over.  The sun was going down on  Warrenton....our feet were tired but our hearts were happy!   


  1. Oh gosh, that looks like a place I would LOVE to visit!!! Peace!! haha ... Donna

  2. The Coke sign is fabulous. We saw a sign yesterday that had peaches spelled peches.

  3. I love all the sings! Isn't it funny to see pictures of the same event from other's eyes. I am glad you had a good time...we had a BLAST. I always say that Warrenton is my Disneyworld! Thanks for visiting the blog...I love yours!
