I recently acquired two really nice vintage store lights by Maxell and BASF and thought I'd share them here.  :-) 
They really go well with the boombox display and it feels even more 80s in my living room/museum now.  :-D

The Maxell one is really cool. It creates a 3D-effect using a one-way-mirror on the front.

 

What illuminated signs do you guys have? Please share your photos!  :-D

Nice signs.

I’ve had a few but mainly seem to get just Aiwa ones for some reason. I like the ones with the original Aiwa logo best. I’ve got a large Technics sign in storage and used to have a very large Hitachi sign which is now with member Geoff Hartwell.

I have another on the way which is thankfully not an aiwa one.  ☝️

Awesome collection! I've never seen an Aiwa one for sale. :)
For some reason, in my case it's BASF signs that I keep finding. Also have an illuminated cassette by them.
