Whistle Stops #3 : PA & NJ Travel Catch Up

Throwback Tuesday to a some day trips taken this past fall. A few old, a few new, but unique nonetheless. The handmade feel of the newer signage in here compare nicely to the rustic feel of the ones that have seen better days.

Loving the drop shadow and the letter forms on an uneven surface.

Even though the building is boarded up and obviously the sign is barely readable, the thought of a history is what caught my attention.

Great place to eat. Saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives. : ) Sign wise: I can appreciate the poor kerning.

I ended up at this place on whim. The second I saw their logo and the bright green and black branding, I knew I’d love what was inside. They use the same handmade feel with their signage as they do their promotional materials. Down the cute little ally way and inside you’ll find over 40 vendors. All handmade arts, crafts, vintage, reclaimed, etc.
