Subway Signs

I first discovered subway signs at the Alameda Flea Market. They were vintage, of course, and sold for about $1600 bucks. They are beautiful and big and would look so lovely in any home. After doing a little research, I found an ETSY vendor (okay, research wasn't that hard) who creates these subway signs for about $40 bucks. I would absolutley love one of these to hang in our apartment. And wouldn't it be a great gift for someone? How cute would it be to list our old street names of old apartments my husband and I have lived in? Or for a traveler, to list out their most exciting destinations? Or for a family who live far apart, to list our cities to remind us of each other?

Of course, I chose this one with all the San Francisco hot spots. :) I also found another option for custom "vintage replicas" here. Here are some pretty interiors with subway signs.

  1. Thank you for your post on my subway signs. I LOVE making the custom ones because they are so personal. I have many, many photos from my customers at
