Decorating With Vintage Advertising Signs

By Harriett Crosby

Figuring out how to decorate a room can be a challenge as there are many options from which to choose. Yet, the concerns that most people have most often are the cost and the amount of time it will take to change a room. Anyone who wants to add some flair to space without spending a lot of time or money might want to try vintage advertising signs.

For some, it brings back a bit of nostalgia to simpler times or it reminds them of a product that is no longer around. Then again, some find the color, images, and text used in these signs attractive as some styles are animated or have unique artwork that is hard to find today. Seldom are these features found in modern day ads.

Using vintage signs is nothing new as some businesses have done this as a way to bring a retro feel to their establishment. Sometimes these signs and other displays are inherited from the previous owner of the business. Whatever the reason, they add an aesthetic to a space and the great thing is that they are generally easy to add.

When it comes to decorating, some people like to choose a theme for a room or space. For instance, some people like to have their kitchen, including appliances, in one color or pattern. Retro signs that have these features as part of their image are a great complement to the decor of the room.

For anyone who is wondering where to find these signs there are a number of options. There are many online retailers that sell clean prints, often at good prices and some even offer discounts on large orders. Those looking for originals may have quite a hunt on their hands and, depending on a number of factors, they may find themselves paying a nice amount of money.

Places to find original ad signs and posters are online and in person auctions, thrift shops, and other retailers. The only downside is that the selection may not be the best and the quality may be questionable. Although independent sellers who advertise original signs for sale, it may be wise to check them out thoroughly before going through with a sales transaction.

Some people like to run the gamut when it comes to decorating a space with vintage images. In other words, they may choose to use things like retro lamps, furnishings, and other miscellaneous items from a particular era. This can be fun for the person that likes to travel in time or create several conversation pieces within a living space.

Visiting a store can help stir up some decorating ideas for a living space. When some choices have been made, the buyer should look for places that have a good sales record. The use of vintage advertising signs is one way to add a different type of pizazz to a room and choosing the right seller can save money and time.
