TOP's new sign was delivered and installed this morning. It was designed and made by Chris Gary at Top Dog Design Studio in Hammondsport, with, of course, input from lots of TOP readers! So, thank you for your suggestions.
I'm very pleased. The sign had to look a bit old-fashioned to match the c. 1880 Gothic Revival house. I think it strikes the right balance for the setting. It helps that Chris, who specializes in hard-carved, gilded wooden signs (including the big welcome sign for the town of Hammondsport itself), designed pretty much half the signs—of all kinds—in this entire area.
Thanks too to all the people who "subscribe" (make a small regular recurring donation) to TOP—your contributions paid for this. You are very kind.
Oh, and by the way—Chris's shop has no sign out front. Ain't that the way?
