Handcrafted. Southern. Reclaimed.


Handcrafted, original signs made from aged, reclaimed wood and barn roof tin from barns and fallen structures 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 pieces, and we were amazed to see how much people admired our detailed, unique work. Currently, our pieces are featured in Poppie's Boutique, Archive and the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee. 

We strive to make unique pieces by using original, old wood from Tennessee. We believe everything is beautiful in its own way. We use reclaimed wood from southern barns and buildings that have fallen on our farms and other local farms. Every piece that we create is made with wood that is at least 20 years old.   

Creating and designing each sign with attention to detail is important to us and it shows.
