Ahhh, the simple days when it cost no more than 29¢ for a yard of fabric. It's hard to believe, isn't it?!?

These price signs are deadstock from the now defunct Woolworth stores. Woolworth's, one of the original American five and dime stores, was founded in 1879 and grew to be one of the largest chains in the world. Though I'm unsure of these signs' exact age, I do know that it's been quite awhile since you could find prices like these. The signs are printed on chipboard, and the retro typography is absolutely wonderful!

The large signs measure 3 1/2" by 2 3/4" and read "F.W. Woolworth Co" in a charming old-school border. They are two-sided, featuring labels including
Set 29¢
Yard 7¢
Bottle 15¢
Foot 5¢
As well as some basic price points.

The medium and small signs feature white lettering, which stands out strongly against a red background. These signs are single-sided, and some have "Printed in U.S.A." stamped on the back. The medium-sized signs measure approximately 2 7/8" by 7/8". The small signs measure approximately 2" by 1/4".

Many are still intact as a pad, with a gummed edge holding them together. It's fun to think about the shopkeep tearing each off, and displaying them with the goods for sale.

You will receive a total of 15 signs, including 3 large signs and a mix of 12 medium and small signs. If you'd like a different quantity, just convo me and I'll create a reserved listing for you.

I'm sorry, but I am unable to accommodate requests for specific cards. Please allow me to select a nice variety on your behalf.
