Where can I find some road signs to make furniture out of? Answered

I've been looking at a lot of cool Instructables on road sign furniture that I wanted to try out.  Where can I find some.

You could try asking the local road department what they do with their scrap ones.

+1. Any other answer is going to involve either theft, or buying road signs new.

True. Though actually the bent sign I rescued, many years ago, is steel.

(When people ask me what my sign is, I can truthfully say "No Parking".)

Some cities have set up stores to sell used road signs etc. since there is a real market for them.

Be aware that in most places owning any road sign not marked obsolete is a felony.
