A Sign for the Time

Established in 1968, The Rosemary House is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year! As part of our big 5-0 celebration we are taking a look back though the past five decades. Our first shingle, painted and hung by dear old dad was one part of his contribution to the new venture.

Fragrances, Flavors, and Remembrances  - significant since Rosemary is the symbol of Remembrance. 

Our next sign was very similar but we added the Herb and Spice Merchant sign on the side of the building easily seen when traveling on Market Street.
Still promoting fragrances, flavors and remembrances, we now added Garden to the name, and the year the business became incorporated.
The most recent update lays it on the line, Herbs, Teas and Spices.  New style sign, new tag line, and parking in the rear. The transition of the signage offers a study in design and change, and all of the signs feature an artistic interpretation of Rosemary.

Happy anniversary! I always enjoy seeing your different tea events. Maybe some year I might make it up from Texas to visit you!

Well I liked all the signs, but the most recent is my favorite. Congratulations on 50 years! That is quite an accomplishment in this country.
