A functional piece that speaks volumes. Some buy them for their business. We’ve sold several that went into the bedroom. No comment.

Blair & Jen first came up with the sign for their Chautauqua pop-up shop in 2018. It’s glowing message and humor drew people into Rosie’s alternate universe. We are all about smiles, positivity and great design. This sign says relax. There’s still fun and humor in the world.

In 2019 the sign caught the eye of a Hollywood location scout. A few months later Sony/ Tristar was filming the Kristen Stewart movie Happiest Season in Rosie’s at Ross Park Mall. And the original Very Open Sign is prominently featured during the shoplifting scene.

We achieve the look of a warm vintage backlit sign with frosted Plexiglas and individual light bulbs causing the classic hot spots. Sign makers frown at this given all the new technology available… but we think it just looks cooler!
