GEORGE'S SIGNS

geb-head-.jpggeo-signpianter-.jpg

I’m an 80-year-old SECOND GENERATION SIGN PAINTER.

 I’m a dinosaur….a GENUINE “OLD TIME” SIGN MAN

I paint NOSTALGIC - RETRO - OLD SCHOOL SIGNS

I was raised in Southern Illinois...now living in Northern Indiana.  For the last 29 years, I have been the sign painter at the Shipshewana Flea Market (the Midwest’s largest mid-week market) painting custom signs for the market, vendors and flea market visitors.

I’m there, painting signs in my sign shop (building 644 - in the center of the market) every Tues. and Wed...8 till 5...May thru the end of September. We'll be there every market day EXCEPT on Wed. June 27, 2018...we’ll close the sign shop, that day we will be going to Streator IL to paint murals with the Walldogs.  The Walldogs is a group sign painters that are lovers of vintage signs. There will be about 150 of us....in 4 days we’ll finish 15 GIANT MURALS. More info on that later...keep checking this page.

I paint every day....I’ll never retire.....I don’t believe in retiring....I don’t fish, hunt or golf.so I just paint....my Dad painted signs until he was 85….I’m just trying to catch up to him....he died at 99-and a half.  I’ll tell y’all about my Dad later and post some photos of his sign work from back in the 40’s & 50’s.

I enjoy painting as much as other folks enjoys drowning fishing worms or running around all over the fields and woods looking for a little bitty lost white ball…..I enjoy what I’m doing.....I‘ll continue painting signs til I die!

 

IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS I'LL BE ADDING LOTS MORE

OF MY ORIGINAL SIGNS THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE

ALL ARE ORIGINALS...NO MASS REPRODUCED SIGNS!
