Aged sign.

The Cherokee Trader

The sign is showing its age. I do like that they have kept the old neon sign going!

The cartoon Indian still looks pretty good, but the rest of the sign is in desperate need of a makeover.

The neon sign is still there, but it's looking pretty neglected.

Still there! Town slowly reopening because of COVID. Sign is really rough looking now.
