Collegiate Weather Vanes – Sophisticated School Spirit

The air is crisp and leaves crackle underfoot. Afternoons are warm and the evenings cool. Yes its fall again and college football games are a weekend norm. Sure you can where a Badgers sweatshirt or a shamrock in your hair but why not support your favorite team or alma mater in style with a collegiate weathervane on the roof or in the garden.

Since 48 BC people have been using weather vanes to determine the direction of the wind and harness its power. Originally only seen on the tallest structure in town they are now a fun way to ad style to your rooftop or garden. Since their invention they have changed not only in material but in shape as well. Now you can find weather vanes in a myriad of themes from hunting and fishing to whimsical and the traditional rooster. So what was once functional has become ornamental and yet another way to support your favorite college team.

Rather than dragging yourself all over town to find your team why not try shopping online? You not only can see the best selection, but you will also find the best prices as well. So shop from the comfort of home and find the perfect piece to accent your garden and show team support with ease.

Made of steel with an antique copper finish they will add color and distinction to your roof or garden. And with over thirty Big Ten schools to choose from you are sure to find your number one team. From Arkansas to Wisconsin you can show off your school spirit or support your son’s or daughter’s school.

If you are going to put your weather vane on the roof you might want to consider perching it on a cupola. Once used for ventilation on barns and other buildings cupolas are now more decorative in nature and are a perfect spot for mounting your UNC weathervane. Made of wood or vinyl they are like a small house with a peaked roof. Your weather vane attaches to the top of this peak or point. You can paint it to match your structure and really create a striking homage to your favorite college.

If you don’t want it on the roof you can have it attached to a long stake to place anywhere in your garden. Once you have a weather vane you’ll wonder how you got a long without one. While they add a focal point or conversation piece to your roof or yard they also still do tell you the direction of the wind which is helpful whether you are going to ride a bike or go play a few rounds of golf.

So keep your team sweatshirt or sticker on the car, but really show off your team support with style and sophistication when you place a collegiate weather vane in or around your yard. No matter if you are saying go team go or just like the cute mascot you’ll love collegiate weather vanes for their style ad fun.
