lucky day- a free find on the roadside.

just thought i'd show you what i found while i was out junking around- great old wooden, handpainted advertising sign for Frostop rootbeer and Carnation ice cream. turns out Frostop was a chain of roadside stands and drive-ins (and maker of rootbeer) that dates back to the 50's. they went belly-up in the early 80's, though a few privately owned Frostops still exist, mainly in ohio and louisianna. i never had the good fortune of seeing one in person, but if anyone remembers them, gimme a shout. think this is going to hang in our kitchen...
