The workmen discovered this little gem under the siding at New Life Quality Resale on Commercial Ave. when they stripped off a leaky wall.

The old wall is scheduled to be re-walled on Thursday, according to a Facebook post by Karman and Eric Paul at New Life.

Is there a way to save this sign?

“We are seeing what can be done about keeping the signage and the wall! Don't know if there is, but we are looking into it! Too bad we don't own the building for New Life. It's owned by someone in Seattle…” according to the Facebook post.
