About Us

video2Hello and welcome.

Bay City Cargo is a leading collector, dealer, and experts on vintage large sign letters, old movie theatre marquee letters, punctuation marks, and more. We are proud to have one of the world's largest collection of sign letters.

How did such a thing come to pass? We own two classic downtown movie theatres. Colonial Theatre and Temple Movies. One day we had to sell some old vintage large sign letters that we had retired off of our movie theatre marquee and faster than you can shout “head’s up!” we found our calling. In short order we became the premier world-wide source for the vintage large sign letters and other large retired retro dimensional letters that once graced movie theatre marquees, drive in movie marquees, casinos, and signs. As the world moves to easier to use flat plastic letters and digital signs everywhere else; we are focused on these big old letters.

We now collect and sell all sizes and styles of old vintage large sign letters. We are always adding to our collection. We sell retail, wholesale, and we buy large lots of letters all the time.

We are located in the quite cool little waterfront city of Belfast, Maine in the historic downtown Belfast Opera House courtyard on the coast of Maine. We welcome visitors to visit us at any time, just to take a look, or shop.
