SOLD!  Camel Cigarettes Neon Sign – Very Cool!

We picked up this neon Camel cigarettes sign in perfect condition at a recent auction.  It reminds me of my grandfather, who smoked Camel non-filters for decades, staining his fingers orange from the nicotine.  (Yet he lived well into his 90s!)

A wonderful piece for your home bar, mancave or business.

Condition:  Excellent.  It’s solid and heavy duty.  The colors are bright and all work perfectly.  This sign is in better shape than many that have sold recently, based on what we’ve seen on our antiques subscription services.

Dimensions:   The entire piece is about 2 1/2′ H x 2′ W.

Price:  $125.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

Please Note:  We will not ship this item.  Neon tubing is very fragile, and although the piece could be sent through the mail, we aren’t comfortable with trying.  Not only is there the possibility that the piece would break (and fixing it almost impossible), but the shipping costs would be exorbitant.  We do not want a customer to lose money on one of our items.  Thank you for understanding.

Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
  • Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing).  If so, that reduced price will be posted.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, not without payment.  We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
  • Questions.  This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job.  This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts.  So I may not have time to respond…

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.

      I’m sorry… did you notice that the title of the blog said it was sold? I had it for barely a week before someone bought it back in March of 2017.

      It was very heavy but I no longer remember how much it weighed. It was the real thing. Not some cheap plastic repro.
