Cruisin' Down U.S. 281
I can't pass up a Texas road sign!

I wanted to show off some of my recent purchases while I was out junkin'. A few months ago I picked up a U.S. Highway 281 sign at Canton's First Monday Trade Days. I saw it early in our day and I asked the guy in the booth what the price was....he said $50. I said okay and walked away. Knowing that I wasn't going to leave Canton without it I went back about 4 hours later and and told him I'd take it for $30. He said fine. It is a sentimental piece to me since this is one of the highways I traveled on a lot back in high school. The other sign is from Texas Farm Road 2230 which is out in west Texas, north of Big Spring. I got it for $18 at my wife's favorite spot in New Braunfels to shop - Max's Haus. As you know, I have a thing for old signs and I have a hard time passing them up when I find them for a good price. They make for an interesting design element in our home. I also threw in a better pic of my landscape painting from a few weeks ago.
