    The Cadillac of Flea Market Finds



    Walked into the local farmer's market today and it tuned out to be more of a flea market and that was literally the first thing I saw when walking in. I'm just holding the face of it, it has a body with neons in it too. One of the neon tubes is broke, I'll probably just put some LED rope lights in it anyway. It was the end of the day, the guy said he'd make me a helluva deal, when he said $100 I figured I couldn't go wrong.

    Awesome. That would go nicely with my V flag.

    I was thinking that before the seller suggested the LEDs and that they would be much more energy efficient and I could adjust the light output to my liking that way too. I'm fairly certain hanging in the garage or the basement it would be blinding with the neon. And if I hung it on the garage it would light up the whole yard and probably the neighbors too. Still not really sure where I'm putting it.

    Go neon, not LED. Great find.

    Nice. Elegant, and yet so refined.

    +1 on the neon. What does the body look like? You mentioned you were only holding the face?

    It is about 6-8 inches deep I would guess. White metal band. It is dent free, in good shape. The band goes around the faceto hold it to the backing that has the lighting in it.
