Vintage Weber Costello Chalkboard

I found this vintage Weber Costello Chalkboard in my parent’s basement back in 2006 during a move. I’m not sure where it came from but I’m sure my Mom collected it on one of her many flea market outings.

After discovering the chalkboard my spouse and I hung it in the foyer of our past home, it was used to greet visitors, records shopping lists and the occasional love note.

Today it hangs in the kitchen of our new home. In a location that allows it to still greet friends and family as they enter our home, check shopping and to do lists as we run out the door and see those surprise love notes that still appear from time to time.
