I completely forgot to post about this find last week. It’s a good thing because I don’t have anything new to post because I have been so busy this past week and weekend (see below for the reason why).
This is an Original Hex Sign made by Jacob Zook, a Hexologist. Hex signs are a form of Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Art. Sadly, Jacob Zook’s store in Paradise, PA closed in 2010.
I was immediately drawn to this sign because of the orangey reds and avocado greens that go perfectly in my kitchen. And as a bonus, it was never opened so it still has the legend it came with so you can see all the designs. This 8 pointed star was meant to wish abundance in the fields.
I paid $2.99 for this Hex sign. Prices are all over the place on eBay and I’m sure value is based on pattern. I feel this one is worth between $10-$12, at least.
The reason I have been so busy this past week is because we moved our booth at the Port City Co-op from the basement to the main floor. It is a slightly larger space and since it is in the kitchen section of the building, I feel like it better suits our inventory as I love vintage kitchenalia, Pyrex, enamelware, linens, etc. The Port Cit Co-op is located at 137 W 2nd St., Oswego, NY. Winters hours are as follows: Closed Monday & Tuesday, Open Wednesday 11am – 5pm, Thursday & Friday 11am – 6pm, Saturday 11am – 5pm and Sunday 12pm – 4pm.
Here’s how the booth looked when we finished the move on Saturday afternoon. I still have a few new items to add, but the majority is done.
If you are in the area, I encourage you to stop by. The movie theater is across the street and there are several good eateries and other antique shops in the area, so you can make an afternoon of it.
