When a haircut wasn’t just a haircut, it was an experience. The red, white and blue barber shop pole outside was sign of what was to come, billowy shaving foam, straight edged razors, a hot towel, and artistry at its best. Barber shops served as meeting grounds for political discussion, camaraderie, and a great place to catch up on local happenings. Barber shops also became the birthplace for great antiques and collectibles. PrairieGrit pickers are passionate about collectible barber shop advertising such as: cast iron barber poles, porcelain steel barber shop signage, hand painted wooden signs, and so much more.
