Retro Signs on sale at Hobby Lobby

When I was a kid I associated Hobby Lobby with hobbies. I mostly remember them mostly selling art supplies and toy models and fabric. These days they sell a lot more than that, including lots of home decorating signs. Last night I found a ton of retro themed signs on sale for 50% off!

Retro Signs (1)

These large signs, including that Play-Dough one, were marked at $20 (normally $40). They also had these slightly smaller ones available.

Retro Signs (2)

So many good ones here — Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry, Yogi Bear, and more! These signs were $15-$17.50, depending on the size. I really loved that bomb pop sign down near the bottom. (Spoiler alert: I ended up buying that microphone sign. It’s hanging next to where I podcast.)

Retro Signs (3)

Here are more signs from the same price range. Although not all of these are retro (*cough* Duck Dynasty *cough*) I felt compelled to include that Mr. Potato sign.

Finally, next to the metal signs were these mounted canvas piece of art.

Retro Signs (4)

The vintage board game covers were $15, and the only reason I didn’t buy one is because I wanted to buy them all. The smaller signs were $10 each. Any of these signs would be a great addition to a retro-themed room.

Th-Th-That’s all, folks!

    Awesome. I wonder if they have them down here in Phoenix. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip.

    My biggest take-away in all of this is one thought: “Dog ‘N Suds is a chain?”

    I learned something new today, and now I’m craving coneys and root beer.

  3. I have discovered these and others there, and have completely decorated both my home theater snack bar, and retro diner corner with them! I love them!

    The “Battleship” game vintage cover has a “interesting” dynamic at work. I still have my “Battleship” game with that box art; purchased in 1969. On the box cover the father and son are having a nice time playing “Battleship”; meanwhile, in the upper right corner (covered by the packing in the photo above) the mother and daughter are doing dishes … smiling at the “Battleship” game in progress. That would probably make the cover a conversation piece.

    Yes, Dog ‘N Suds WAS a chain. I worked at one in my small hometown of Bellefontaine, Ohio in 1980-81! LOL Now I too am hungry for some old fashioned “dog with suds” LOL Thanks for the post…………just LOVE me some Hobby Lobby (thanks to my late mother….love ya Mom) ; )
