It is easy to take cards, signs and photos etc that you have, and hang them in your work space. It doesn't matter where they are from, a favorite vacation or a flea market, as long as it feels great in your space, personalizing it and bringing you back to your great memories.
I bought these grocery numbers years ago at Elephant's Trunk in New Milford Connecticut. (See our posting from March 17 for details.) They came in a large box filled with these interesting signs from a grocery store from the 60's. I really had no idea how vast the collection was when I bought it, and loved the surprise as I unpacked.
Before they started tagging each vegetable or fruit with computerized stickers, the produce bin was marked and items were weighed in the department. I always liked the numbers and the graphics, and I love "LOOK, FRESH, YOUR CHOICE and SPECIAL." I was happy to have found these at Elephant.

You can search for "vintage grocery numbers" on Etsy. Many options are available, and of course, make a trip to Elephant's Trunk. You will be happy that you did.
