I had the typical assortment of traffic signs (I still can’t believe my mother really believed they came from the junkyard), posters, pin-up girls, and funny signs that said things like “Think” and “Plan Ahead,” with letters trailing off the edge of the sign because the sign-maker hadn’t planned ahead.
