Shopping Reminder

I bought this Shopping Reminder pegboard at the yard sale of my former Jr. High art teacher.  She is a lovely lady and told me it belonged to her mother.  I was delighted to have it.  It was mint in the package, but I accidentally got it a little too close to the tea kettle and melted a hole in the plastic.  The original price is on the back and it cost 15 cents.  I think I paid a dollar for it.

The graphic .. I guess.. is a tiny henpecked husband being yelled at by what looks like an angry wife.  Does she have an ice cube tray?  Looks like a weird store or kitchen, the knife is right above his head.

Don’t forget the B. Powder, which I hope means “Baking” and not something else!  I’m not sure if I’ll hang this up somewhere or keep it in the package, or catch-and-release it, but I think it’s pretty cute.

    Too bad about burning a hole in the plastic but it hasn’t mired the beauty of this thing. I have several of these but this graphic is by far the winner.

    The position of the knife is really something.

    Both B.. powder and B. soda are listed. Is there such a thing as baking powder? I’m so not a cook or housekeeper but I thought there was only baking soda.

    Love that you inherited something from your old teacher.
