Pair of hand-lettered farm produce signs from the early 1950s. That's when Americans in great numbers first took to the road for family summer vacations. Imagine rounding the bend on a dusty country road to discover a ramshackle wooden farm stand with these handmade signs hanging on hooks above bins of fresh fruit and vegetables. Signs as weathered and aged as the farm couple who services the stand. He cut the wood and his wife lettered the signs, red for strawberries, peach-colored for peaches. Ideal to hang in the kitchen with their special resonance from a simpler time past.
