Mini Trend: Big Letters

Now that Domestica's so so close to being a reality, I find myself obsessing over the smallest of details.  It's definitely a product of the fear that I'm forgetting something compounded by the enormity of all the things that opening a store requires. 

When I'm feelinng overwhelmed, I take a little vacation and go look for big letters. Specifically, Big D's.

I've always wanted to go to the Las Vegas sign graveyard (who hasn't), and the audacity of such bold announcements combined with the built-in nostalgia for a time/place that only exists in your imagination, is, in my opinion, a fantastic source of decor animus.
