Handcrafted. Southern. Reclaimed.


Handcrafted, original signs incorporating reclaimed wood from local barns in middle Tennessee.

Based in Smithville, Tennessee and established in 2011, SignNiche began as making gifts for family & friends. It quickly evolved into a small business. We travelled to many festivals in Tennessee selling our signs, and were amazed to see how much people admired our detailed and unique work. We strive to make beautiful pieces by using rustic wood and our own designs. Many of our signs we will incorporate local reclaimed barn wood aged at least 50 years.  

Currently, our pieces are featured in both locations of Poppie's Boutiques, Cookeville and Lebanon stores.
