Big thanks to Poppy on Twitter for flagging up this salvaged gem – a vintage metal Hovis shop sign.
Why would you want it? Who knows – nostalgia, a quirky addition to your own shop, future collectable – there's all sorts of reasons for you to want one. The sign, which was presumably once hanging above a bakery measures approx 160cm X 40cm and weighs a hefty 5kg, with a black paint job on the background that's now peeling off to reveal the original green. The letters also strip back to a 'brass' colour too.
If you fancy it, the sign has a starting bid of £99, with the cost of a courier at £24 to get it to your home.
