When the Pennsylvania Dutch began painting their barns and homes in the late 19th Century, they also started adding hex signs to the building's front. It was hoped that these colorful, symmetrical symbols would bring good fortune and blessings to the homestead and occupants.

Today, this Pennyslvania company salvages these original hex signs from area barns and sells them as framed works of art.

Pennysylvania Dutch hex sign sell for about $1,200 (October 2005).
