Here are two random, but fun, thrift store finds.

Metal "Fresh Eggs" sign
Found this fun metal sign for $2.00.  Hey, we don't have fresh eggs yet, but it seemed like something fun to put up.  It's certainly not old, it's one of those reproduction signs, but still a neat conversation piece to put above the sink.

Metal desk bell
OK, this might seem weird, and I have no idea what we'll do with it, but I always thought it would be neat to have one of these.  It's a metal bell, the kind you might find on an old hotel reservation desk.  This one has a red metal base which fits the kitchen perfectly so I took it as a sign, LOL.
For $2.75, I couldn't pass it up.

Both of those are great. Use the little bell as a form of celebrating, like when I great dish comes out of the oven or the cake did not fall.

Awesome finds! I just love going to thrift stores & finding something unique. Last year I found a metal sign - similar in style to your Fresh Eggs sign - that had a vintagy snowman on it with the phrase "No Peeking!". We placed it on the mantel right next to the tree & it quickly became one of my favourite pieces of Christmas decor.
