Does anybody know if state DOT's sell old road signs that they
replace? Or is there perhaps a good place online or even on this
forum to buy and sell street signs?
I have tons of license plates and old travel signs for my "man cave"
and am really wanting to add some used highway signs to the walls to
really tie it all together.
Does anybody know a good source of highway signs? In particular, I'm
looking to purchase an I-94 shield (having grown up in Wisconsin) .
Following is misc.transport.road FAQ Question 10.5; it contains
information that's four years old or more, so I can't vouch for its
authenticity anymore, but it's a start, and others can verify or
Q: Where can one buy road signs?
A: Good-quality road signs may be purchased at http://www.hallsigns.com/
, http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/dot/html/signs/cmsigns.html ,
http://street.safeshopper.com/ , http://www.trafficsafetystore.com/ ,
and http://www.ringway.co.uk/ (others are listed within
). Signs occasionally appear on eBay ( http://www.ebay.com/ ).
Finally, an occasional m.t.r poster ( http://profiles.yahoo.com/usroute12
) collects orders for bulk purchase of signs with both current and
retired designs. See also http://www.trafficsign.us/signpurch.html .
Note: This FAQ does not necessarily endorse any business.
Be advised that possession of road signs may be a criminal offense in
some localities, even with valid proof of purchase.
