Farm Stand Signs

One of my favorite things about summer is the wonderful variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.  We are lucky to have several small farms with farmstands where you can get produce right from the fields.  Of course, I also take notice of the signs!  Who wouldn't want to buy corn at a place that was identified by a giant smiling ear of corn!

I don't know if this type of stand is typical all around the US, but here on the East Coast I see lots of these buildings.  Usually they are a barn or garage type building and open only seasonally but in some cases they can grow into year round stores.

The sandwich signs at one of the local stands really caught my eye.  They are a little formal and unusual for a farm stand where the signs are often hand lettered and less permanent looking.  I think the shape would be great for a card.  I'll be trying one to make one soon, anyone want to join me?

In addition to the shapes, I like the starburst effect behind the main image.  I am thinking about the best way to mimic this...and I have a few ideas.

I just finished up a huge project I have been working on for a while and I'll have a few things to show in connection with that sometime next week.  This weekend we'll be going to a family reunion and I am going to watch for more farm stands with interesting signs...

  1. Hmmm. I think I have a die that would make that shape. Maybe I'll give it a try. Love the smiling corn sign. We have farm stands like that and even ones more rustic around us.
