When neon lighting technology hit the scene in the early 20th century, it was a dazzling sensation. Manufacturers called it “light without heat,” and incredible signage featuring flickering, flashing letters, arrows and stripes began dotting avenues all over the nation. At Rejuvenation, we have an on-going love affair with antique signage, particularly restored neon. With New Year’s Eve approaching, a time when the night is lit by bright bulbs and celebratory fireworks, we thought this would be the perfect time to share some of our favorite glow-in-the-dark relics!
Neon Alley lights up our Los Angeles store.
