One of the things I like about advertising are signs. One of my favorites is a wooden sign designed to stand up on a street that says: No horse traffic on this street by order of the police board. I have another sign above my trash can that says: Put lunch refuse here. I am always drawn to signs at shows and auctions. Stop signs, street signs, any signs. I once had a large metal sign that said "Zoo" with an arrow and it had a big picture of a monkey.
My mom found a porcelain street sign that said "Judge St." and she bought that for my brother who is a judge. When Mom saw that sign I thought she was having some kind of attack. It was at a flea market that takes up an entire town one weekend a year and I was driving trying to find a place to stop when mom started screaming, "judge," I thought she saw my brother or something.
