Sold! Wicked Cool Neon Sign “The Fabulous 50’s” in Near Perfect Condition – Vroom!

Oh man, I just love this sign, and if it doesn’t sell, oh well….

It’s one of the heavy, older neon signs, not one of those lightweight new ones.  The colors are brilliant as you can see from the photos. I got it at an auction, where they had many other unbelievably cool vintage items from the same collector.  Wouldn’t I have loved to see that house!

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see more photos (more to come).

Dimensions: About 20″ high x 26″ wide.

Condition: Excellent.  It’s absolutely fabulous.

FCFS. No holds without payment in advance via PayPal. (I don’t use any other cash or money app.)

Price:  $325.00.  However, if you pay for it via PayPal by Friday evening, April 29, I’ll knock $50.00 off the price because the plan is to move it to a display booth I have at an antiques shop an hour’s drive away, and I worry that it will get bumped or broken while there. And that would make me cry. Seriously.

Shipping: For the same reason as above, I will NOT ship it.  Just a few days ago I used a professional shipping company to send an antique ceramic elephant to a customer in South Carolina, and between the lousy packaging and the service used to drive it there, the piece shattered.  And neon is even more fragile.  So please feel free to set up a time when you can come get it.

Local Pick Up Available in Auburn, Maine.  This item is located at a private home in Auburn, and can be seen there by appointment, which ordinarily would be on weekends only. For those who prefer, you can find this item on Facebook’s Marketplace here:  [to be added once item is posted to Marketplace] or you can send an email to Linda at

Payment Through This Website:  This site supposedly offers the option of paying directly but there’s some kind of weird glitch and payment info for every new item posted somehow auto-populates to every previous item.  Since that’s obviously wrong, I’ve had to eliminate that option on most items.  My apologies!  Please connect with me via for purchase info.  Because my primary business is non-stop and demanding, I may not get back to you until early morning or late evening. (More apologies!)

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  Johnny was an avid reader, who was passionate about the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed, although it has been in hiatus during the pandemic.  I’m hoping to begin working on this again during the spring of 2023. 

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
