The Elephant's Trunk Signage

Tomorrow I meet with the Lexington Historic District Commission for approval of our signage. I'm nervous. I went to the meeting last month so I know what I'm in for and they only recently allowed hanging signs (which is what we would love to have) so it might take some convincing. Lexington center is so beautiful and historic so it makes sense that we have to go through this process. Imagine if Mass Ave was a mess of all different signs hanging haphazardly along the street?! The center certainly would lose it's charm which is why we are trying to maintain the historic feeling while also adding a little fun.

Here's what Gloria came up with for the hanging sign:

I obviously loved it and sent it directly to the sign company and they came back with this:

I think it's perfect! We can only hope that the committee thinks so too. Wish me luck! I'll have a full report Friday.

  3. Good Luck! I'm so sure it will go off without a hitch. You are prepared and you have a wonderful sign that will fit in nicely with the historic charm of Mass Ave. in Lexington center. It's all good!!!
