Description

Caption reads, "Everybody talks...nobody listens!" A rare, collectible combination wall plaque / pin back badge or large button by Hallmark Cards featuring two adorable geese or ducks with mouths wide open as if talking to each other. This plaque is SO CUTE!

Great gift for a collector of Hallmark collectibles, bird lovers, anyone who loves geese or farm animals. Know anyone who loves to talk on the phone incessantly? This just might be the ideal gift for that person! Fun wedding gift, bridal shower gift or bachelor party gag gift for a bride or groom who never shuts up! Funny Mother's Day or Father's Day gift for a mom or dad who likes to talk and talk especially those types who are constantly talking on their phones!

This funny wall plaque was purchased new from a Hallmark store in the 70's and was hung on the wall in my parents' kitchen next to our yellow 70's rotary phone for many years. I always thought the birds in the photo were geese, but after a little research I think they might be ducks...or geese...I just don't know! I do know a gaggle of geese is known for being very noisy, but I've heard some very noisy ducks! Gaggle...gag gift.

This plaque has a built-in cardboard easel on the back, and it also has a metal hanger to hang it on a wall. The hanger is similar to a safety pin, so it COULD be worn as a (very large) round badge or button. This would make a great birthday gift for someone with a good sense of humor. Cute sign to hang on a wall or set on a table or desk near a telephone (or smartphone charger or docking station).

Made in U.S.A.

● Age: Vintage 1970's.
● Color: Gray, white with orange letters.
● Size: 5 7/8" diameter (Measuring across from one side to the other.)
● Metric: 14.92 cm diameter
● Condition: Great vintage condition with a few minor flaws: a small dent along the edge which makes the plaque a little less round-looking (someone might be able to bend it back into shape, but I am afraid to attempt it). On the front are two tiny bumps where the hanger on the back is protruding a little (only noticeable when the light hits them just right). On the back there is a small water stain on the cardboard backing.

FAQs

📬 If you purchase two or more items from my shop I will be happy to adjust the shipping costs for you to give you the lowest combined price! Contact me before checking out and let me know which items you are going to purchase and include your zip code.

📬 Shipping charges are estimated by Etsy. I will charge you the lowest shipping price which will include insurance and tracking. If you are overcharged I will refund the difference if over $1.00 .
🚬 My home and studio are smoke-free, and I do not smoke. I sell vintage items, and sometimes I notice the smell of smoke on some of the items I purchase. If I notice any odors I can not get rid of after I clean the item, I will mention this in the item's description.

👛 👚 👔 Fabric items whether vintage or handmade by me are gently washed with a mild detergent and no fabric softeners. Fabric items shipped to you will have very little or no detergent scent.
🐾🐾 My pets are outdoor pets. My cats sometimes enter the building where my studio is located because they are trying to escape from the mean dog or they want to sleep, but the studio door always remains closed.

🐱 👗 ✋ I always wash my hands after handling my pets, & I will change clothes if necessary before making anything in my studio or packing items for shipment.

🐍 🐱 🐢 This is an animal-themed store. Being the super models my cats think they are, items for sale in my shop will occasionally be photographed outdoors with my cats, a turtle, lizard or snake (when I am feeling brave). I will do my best to make sure the items you receive are free of pet hair & dander. My cats will NOT model any fabric items that a customer will receive.
❓❓If you have any questions about my shop policies or about an item of mine that have not been answered here or in that item's description please contact me BEFORE making a purchase. I will promptly reply to you and answer your questions.
🛍 If you make a purchase from more than one of my shops, you can now check out using the same shopping cart, and I will ship your items together. Please contact me before checking out so I can adjust the shipping charges for you to give you the best rate! Nobody likes to pay costly shipping fees, so I will be happy to adjust the shipping for you.
📬 📬 If you want items shipped to different addresses, you will need to check out more than once.

For example, you are buying items for yourself and items for someone else as a gift. Place the items for the gift recipient in your cart (or carts if buying from more than one of my shops) then pay for those items making sure to type in the gift recipient's name and shipping address. (If you already have items in the cart for more than one person, you can choose "Save for Later".)

Go back to the items you are purchasing for yourself, place them in your cart(s), make sure you select the correct shipping name and address then pay for those items. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me, but please do so BEFORE you check out. 😀
