The Simpsons Party tablecloth

Year: 1990

The Simpsons Party tablecloth 1990I don’t know much about this, apart from the fact that it’s a tablecloth from 1990, featuring the family in weird, apparently-mid-dance poses, with a logo proclaiming this is “The Simpsons Party”.

I’ve seen other party favours, like paper plates and hats and everything, from around the same time, but this doesn’t seem like it’s part of that set: most of those follow the pink colour scheme they used a lot in the early years of the show.

Anyway, expect to see a LOT more of this around here. It’s going to be the background for basically all future photos.

Homer and Marge Salt Pepper shakers

This pair of ceramic Homer and Marge salt and pepper shakers is too fragile for my clumsy hands to ever actually use, but damn they look nice on a shelf. Released in the UK by Lions Brush in 2000, Homer stands at 9cm, and has five holes in his head, while Marge towers over him at 12cm, but has just one hole in the top.

So which one’s for salt and which is for pepper? That question keeps me up at night.

Simpsons Barney bottle opener Unique ConceptsThe Barney Bottle Opener is from a fantastic line of decorative barware from Unique Concepts. Each statuette is finely detailed and looks great by itself, but the hidden use only makes it more appealing. They appear to be handpainted, and are made from a sturdy material. Polyresin maybe? I dunno, I’m just guessing.
