Neon signs

Today, after seeing this image from Emma's Design Blogg I'm obsessing over vintage neon signs. Yes, I should be working, but I just can't help myself! I would love a small, relatively subtle one for the kitchen or somewhere just for a bit of kitschy fun, but they aren't cheap! Here are a few I found for sale on the internet:
