  14. I recognized your sign immediately!! It's from a Kroger grocery store.

    I have some photos/links that would give you some background on your sign. If you'd like me to send them to you, let me know how to contact you. I didn't know if I should post links in a comment or not.

  19. Amy, I LOVE this sign! I'd love to find an authentic old sign similar to yours. I've come across a few but they have been more than I can afford. Your Groceries one though would be hard to pass up...love the way it's under your cabinet there...looks like a perfect fit.
