Wildwood Neon Crab Sign Found on Ebay
From time to time we like to jump online to see if we can find old Wildwood Signs for sale. While searching crab neon signs on Ebay, yes we randomly do this, we saw a listing for a large crab neon sign and knew it look familiar. After inspected the photos on the listing we knew it was from our area.
In North Wildwood on 6th street and New Jersey Ave there used to sit the Sixth Street Seafood Fish Market. The building today is a thrift store. If you remember there used to be multiple crab neon signs around the building. There was a one sided neon crab on the 6th street side and a double crab neon sign on the room. Every year Sixth Street Seafood used to take down the roof sign, for storage, and put it back up in the Spring.
In the photo below you can see the crab in the top left corner.
It turns out the owner of the building decided that it’s time to get rid of their large neon sign. Currently the neon sign is listed at $5,000.
The listing says, “Sign once used for seafood restaurant and takeout in North Wildwood New Jersey. Custom Made for us in 1995. Works but some neons are now cracked, needs neon repair on some spots. has white and red neon. Very large sign lights up the night, amazing looking lite…. rare and unique”
So our question is this, are you crazy enough to buy, fix it up and put it outside of your house?
