A vintage sign doesn’t have to be colorful or quirky to get my attention…the simple ones are lovely, too!
Like bowling alleys, old theaters also tend to have cool, vintage signs. But theatre signs tend to be even more vintage than the ones you find at bowling alleys, often by several decades by the look of them!
I went looking for the Concord Bowl sign, because I had seen a picture of it, and I knew it was cool. On the way there, I stumbled across this equally cool (if not cooler!) sign for Federhofer’s Bakery. I know I must have driven by the bakery before, but I somehow failed to notice the sign. I’m glad I fixed that, because it’s gloriously vintage!
Bowling alleys have the best vintage signs. This one in south St. Louis is a little worse for the wear, but it still screams “retro!”
Another cool vintage sign on the Delmar Loop!
When we were in Nashville two weeks ago, we happened by this amazing sign for the former Belle Meade Theatre. This isn’t the best picture of it, but it certainly is gloriously vintage!
In honor of the “Great American Eclipse” tomorrow, I’m sharing my favorite vintage style sign on the Delmar Loop, belonging to the Moonrise Hotel and Eclipse Restaurant, which is conveniently located by “The Sun” on the Delmar Loop Planet Walk!
