Signs, signs everywhere there's signs

.... And they are going up for sale, in an online auction!

Starting on Monday, you can own a piece of Toronto history.

Decommissioned street signs are going up for auction online.

Initially the city will offer up 100 signs for sale, with the opening bids set for 30 dollars. Bidding increments will be 5 dollars after that.

The signs will be up for bid for a total of 60 days and will all be sold individually.

As of right now, Toronto has more than 17 hundred signs in the inventory that will be available for purchase, and officials expect to offer up between 2 and 3 hundred signs for sale each year.

Not all  signs that have been taken down, will be offered up for sale though. If the sign is unreadable or in extremely bad shape, those will be recycled rather than being sold.

You can click HERE for the online auction site.

And check back often, new signs are expected to be added daily.
