Up for your consideration is this VERY cool Drink Kool Aid, First in Flavor sign! I got this sign from a man that pulled several of them off of a barn in Northern Wisconsin in the early 1970s. (I even have a vintage picture of the barn with some of the signs on it!). The sign is large measuring about 32" X 59". It's not in the best condition, there is some rust, bends, etc., but I have not seen another quite like it. Would make an awesome barn hanger! Priced to sell at $350.00. Here's one issue though. I REALLY do NOT want to ship this sign as it is big and would be expensive to ship and a pain in the add to pack. I would rather sell it to someone in the Chicago area where we can do a local pick up. Any interest please call Frank at 708-257-8539

I might consider shipping. Interested party would have to call me to discuss.

Guys, here is the way I sell stuff. When I get a cool item that relates to the interest on this site I list it here FIRST. I have found the members of this site to be very cool and willing to buy a good piece of merchandise when presented with it. As a result members have bought a lot of GOOD stuff from me at VERY reasonable prices. I'm not looking to gouge anyone or sell junk. I package my stuff well and ship it out immediately upon receiving payment. So far everyone's been happy.

With that said, I listed the sign on this site FIRST, almost 18 hours before I listed the other on e-bay. (yes the sign on e-bay is a DIFFERENT sign). After I reduced the price here to $250 I also listed the one that I posted HERE on craigslist and I have a guy coming over in an hour and a half to buy it. I have not posted the result yet because it's not gone yet. The sign I posted on e-bay is a DIFFERENT sign and one that I was going to keep for myself, as it is in slightly better condition. In the past few hours it's been listed I have had 100 looks and 20 watchers. It's different so, we'll see what happens. I would rather sell an item off of e-bay. I would let the better sign I have listed on ebay go to anyone here for $200.00 + shipping if there is any interest. When I initially posted the sign at $350.00 I figured there would be more interest since I have never seen one. the condition and size must have limited the buyers. I hope that answers any questions.

I will also add that 75% of the stuff I list here sells almost immediately. That means two things to me. They are cool pieces and most importantly are priced fairly.

The sign that is in this ad has been sold picked up and paid for via Craigslist.

Carl, I ended the e-bay auction on the other because I just got a shipping quote for someone from e-bay that was interested and to ship from Chicago to Ohio was $120.00. I thought that was way to expensive to mess with on e-bay. They also would fee the hell out of me. I would be paying a $12 frickin e-bay fee plus pay pal fees to just ship the damn thing. That's not even counting fee bay's "final value" fee. Not worth it to e-bay. I do still have the sign in the e-bay ad for sale though.

Ouch! Wish I lived close enough to arrange a pick up as this sign is ON the "hard to find" list.
