It’s sign season.
Garage Sale signs.
For Sale by Owner.
Molly and I took a little trip up and down our block, and we were amazed by how many signs have crowded the landscape on the street. All of the signs shown here are within a mile of our house, down a local stretch of road called Lily Cache Lane.
There are signs offering to help people find work.
There are signs offering up services.
There are even signs offering to make more signs. Only I don’t think this one will drum up much business, since it was broken and lying on the ground.
This particular advertiser managed to plant about two dozen signs just on Lily Cashe Lane. I saw others scattered around the rest of Bolingbrook.
I only spotted three copies of this sign, but it made me wonder if the lease was also written with a black Sharpie. Notice, it does not tell you the location of the property.
Some signs are placed with care, attempting to attract business.
While some signs almost seem to be an afterthought, slapped and tapped where ever seemed most convenient. The balloon is a nice touch though.
Some signs are so old and faded, you can’t event tell they were signs at all. Molly and I decided to toss this one in the garbage, since it seemed very unlikely that the original owner was going to return and remove it themselves.
But by far, my favorite signs of the day belonged to this handy advertiser.
These simple little signs could be found at the base of almost every stop sign in the area.
A regular Jack of all trades!
Although some of his repair signs are in need of repair.
Signs, signs, everywhere a sign. My own little tribute to The Five Man Electrical Band.
