Here Yesterday, Gone Today

An important lesson in seizing the day.
Hanging from the corner was a sign for Merry Weather Leathers.  They closed recently.  I just noticed Sunday as I walked past, the store was being cleaned out. 
Can't say I'm surprised, as I never, ever, ever saw anyone shopping there.
But, more importantly for this blog, their sign.  It had neon.  It had pictures of Bicycle and Bee playing cards.  It was beautiful, and I hope it finds a new home, perhaps at the American Sign Museum.
I WAS sure I had a picture of it somewhere, and I was right! 
 From a May 2011 entry.


  1. Whoa! I had a feeling that store was on its last legs, but the sign was still there the other day. I walk down that block all the time, and I'm pretty sure I never bothered to take a photo of their cool neon sign.

    1. It's not the greatest picture, but, I'm glad I got it!
