Easy-To-Make Farmer's Market Sign
The Dowling, Mich., farmer made a sign out of 10-ft. lengths of 1 1/2-in. dia. pvc pipe and a 10-ft. length of 1-in. pvc. He also used two 1 1/2-in. elbows, eight 1 1/2 by 1-in. tees, and four 6 by 26-in. lengths of 3/16-in. thick foam board.
Hubka made four openings to hold foam board signs, which are held in place by slots cut lengthwise into the horizontal pvc pipes.
His wife used 3-in. colored adhesive letters to design each panel. "She even added reflective tape on it so cars could see it at night," he says.
The legs of the sign slip over two regular steel fence posts. "It's durable and easy for me to change if I run out of something," he says. "At night I just cover the sign up with a garbage bag so people know we're closed."
