If you're familiar with my website, you may have seen the vintage bus/destination signs that I sell. Well, just popped opened May's House Beautiful to see these signs above. It's inevitable. A trend gets reproduced and mass-produced.
Left to right;
a. replica of New York subway sign, price: $495 (yes, that's right...for a repro)
b. custom-made sign - from $295
c. 1950's Hong Kong Bus Sign $3,000 (yay, it's vintage!)
So, what do you think? Would you buy a repro for $495? Do you like the custom-made? Has this trend gone to far?
