Frisco Signs at Hobby Lobby

  1. Had an unexpected suprise today when shopping at Hobby Lobby with my family. Near the front of the store was a bunch of vintage looking automotive signs. So I began looking for a nice Chevy sign to hang in my garage(I just got a 1953 Chevy pickup:)), then I saw what I thought was a Frisco coonskin on the next aisle. So I walked toward it and it was a coonskin. They also Frisco E unit sign which was a copy of one of the old advertisments. Besides Frisco they had Santa Fe and a single CB&Q sign. All had that fake rust/beat up look to them. All signs were licensed by the BNSF. The signs ranged from $15 to $30 which did seem kinda high, but with a 40% off coupon is reasonable. Just thought I would pass that along.

    I bought two of the coonskin logos last week at the new Hobby Lobby that just opened in Bangor, Maine. They were 50% off which made them about $7. I have seen these on eBay for three times that much.

    It was an easy sale. I am probably the only Frisco person on the State of Maine. :)

    I did not see the other one you spoke of and would like to see it.

    I also got a coonskin one at my local Hobby Lobby here in Wichita, KS but could not find any of the others that you mentioned. I also searched their online selections for about an hour to no avail. Oh Well:(

    Me too. I couldn't find anything else Frisco-related.

  5. It looked similar to this, but the text was slightly different. Also the edges were "rusted". They also had a Popular Mechanics one with some F units(non-Frisco, but still cool) on the front.
