Maple Syrup, Fresh Buttermilk

I love this old farm-stand sign from Ohio. The back panel is a sheet of tin, with wooden slats separating the stenciled words.

I love the charming little mistakes that show it was handmade, like the "S" in Sweet Corn that was stenciled upside down.

I spotted it for sale at a wonderful primitive antique shop in Seville, Ohio. Unfortunately the sign wasn't in the budget to come home with me (around $950 if I remember correctly). But I am filing it away for inspiration... I would love to try my hand at reproducing this sign to hang in my dining room. I've been looking for something to fill some blank wall space, and I don't think anything could be more perfect for a dining room. It's making me hungry already!


  1. Oh my goodness that sign is SO cool...but AY Yi yi....too pricey for me too! Have a great summer weekend!

  2. Love that sign too...I immediately looked over to your Etsy (before reading) to see if it was there for sale! I'd like to try my hand at recreating it as well....too cool!

  3. Hmm... I have some blank wall space in my kitchen. Make one for me too! Hehe.

  4. $950 ! Yikes! Surely you can make something similar for a fraction of the cost. Homebaked bread and butter. Yum! Have a beautiful day. Tammy

  5. Hi Ellie...just love that sign but what a price tag. Back home in Melbourne (Aust) I have a big board with lots of came from a French school..very similar but on a larger scale...I must get my daughter to photograph it so I can put it on my blog...she has fun leaving rude messages for her brother on it!
