I decided to take a walk around the block today during my lunch hour. I walked a few blocks from work to look at an old gas station that is being converted into a gas station. I walked past a repair shop and spotted the first sign through a small window on the side of the shop. I went inside and asked the guy if he'd sell the sign and he said he would. I went back through the shop into a large dusty garage and he had this hanging on his wall. The porcelain is good with minor chips and grommets are still in place. He let me poke around a bit more and spotted some other stuff and picked up the Quaker State sign on my way out. I'm going back next week and see if he'll let me poke around some more. I wasn't sure if I should wait and post in BOTW put the pics out now.

Meant to say, convert old gas station into coffee shop.
