Thank you for giving me your opinions in the previous posting. The resounding choice among those of you that commented, is to leave the sign red! How neat! It has been fun to see what you "think about pink"!
Several years ago when we moved into this house, there were a few forlorn dusty items left behind in the carriage house. Upon closer inspection, I realized that this sign was among them, and immediately fell in love with it. I dragged it out, scrubbed it off, and a reclaimed treasure was hung with pride right there above the window where it has been all this time. In the spring we took it down to paint behind it and clean it off. Then we hung it again. The back porch just wouldn't be the same without it. I wish I knew where it was used to advertise cotton candy! Hhmmm...I should ask "Mr. Mayor".
I know the sign isn't advertising the color of the candy, but has anyone ever seen red cotton candy?
