Wow! That green! Made in 1969 and 1970, this Simon Simple Peanuts Burlap Bulletin Board features a fun scene with Linus, Charlie Brown and Snoopy playing baseball. Check out more details on the full Patreon post.
What I Love – The Simon Simple Kitsch! I’ve probably said it before, but these simple felt characters paired are my kind of vintage goodness. The colors are really bright and vibrant on this piece, which makes it extra beautiful. This scene would have been available on multiple background colors. I have this same design on orange. The edging also comes in a variety of colors.
The question I have is: how does one use this bulletin board? Push pins? Straight pins? Thumb tacks? Map pins? The backing of the bulletin board has a rubber coating which would help hold the pin. However, I can imagine the wall behind this bulletin board being damaged when stabbing a pin through the thin material. Unlike a corkboard, this has nothing to really contain the sharp point. Please, enlighten me with your wisdom!
This bulletin board looks hardly used at all. It’s a great collecting candidate. The colors, as mentioned, are vibrant and bright. There’s no fading from sitting the sun or discolorations where papers used to hang. Plus, the rubber backing looks to be intact. Over the years, the backing tends to dry out and start to crack. There are minimal pin holes. It still has its original hanger and string. What’s not to love!
