    The above listed link is our first ever attempt at using EBay. Within a half hour of posting our sign we had our first phone call. This is only a 7 day auction, we are down to our last 3 days. We currently have had 218 views and have  24 people watching.  I am trying not to get overly excited, but from what I have been told, it is extremely good to already be having 24 watchers and over 200 viewers for your first posting.

        I picked an item that is fairly expensive but very unique. This is a Lion Oil Co, 6′ Round, 2 sided, Original Vintage porcelain sign. If that wasn’t rare enough, now throw in the fact that this is also a NOS sign. Which for those of you in the sign world already know, this means it is New Old Stock. This sign was produced more than 70 years ago but was never taken out of the box or hung. Thus the name New Old Stock. This is one awesome sign! 

         I will be back in three days to let you know how our first auction went. Wish us luck! Please go check out or posting. Any feed back you have would be greatly appreciated. 

                Thank you for your support!
