Wow! I get to give birth AND change diapers!

Wow! I get to give birth AND change diapers!

I’ve been poking fun at traditional gender roles for 25 years.

Cooking… cleaning… raising a family… looking fabulous while you’re doing it: fun and funny.

This limited edition Anniversary Shopper, made from 100% recycled and recyclable material, features 32 of my favorite images from the past quarter century.

    I love the products and carry them in my store but would love more variety in different products…

    Ideas: Mugs, check book covers, jewelry pieces, aprons, trinket boxes, hanging ornaments, framed pictures, pillows, just some different thoughts.

    Thanks and keep the good stuff coming!

    When I click on the link to buy the shopper, it doesn’t appear. It is also not shown under Shoopers or new products. How are we supposed to order it?

    We are so sorry the anniversary shopper is not yet in stock it should be orderable by the end of next week.

    I was recently at an antique/collectable store and found a **anne taintor piture in frame. I saw it and thought it looked pretty cool so I bought it. I did not know it was anything to do with anne taintor until I flipped it over, after getting it home, and saw the name tag. I’ve looked all through your current product line and captions and I can not find this particular item. I was wondering if you could provide me with some history or maybe where to look or such. The picture is a pastel of a brunette and she is holding a cigarette. The caption reads “maybe I want to look cheap”. In this age of taboo on cigarettes I thought the whole caption/concept thing was very creative. I am pretty certain that this was probably made either prior to or at the beginning of our cigarette conscious societies ban on smoking. Do you have any information for me?

    Hi Pat,
    That image is from 1934, back when smoking was cool. (Looking cheap is still cool.) “maybe I want to look cheap” was a very popular magnet, card, cosmetic bag, and compact for several years. Sadly, I have to discontinue old captions to make room on the shelves for new, and “cheap” now exists only in the archives. A

    Deb » Unfortunately that caption does not appear on any current products…but you might enjoy browsing other “medication” themed items here: Hope that helps!

    I absolutely adore your products – I am a huge fan and have shared your website with every woman I know.

    I have to say that I agree with Jenny Owen. We would love to see more variety in the products your offer, such as mugs, key chains and aprons (!).

    Keep up the great work!

    Danielle » Thanks so much for your support! I wanted to let you know that we do now offer a selection of the licensed Anne Taintor mugs here: … as far as key chains and aprons I can’t let anything out of the bag but we are always working on more fabulous products so keep checking back!

    Brenda » Hi Brenda – unfortunately the anniversary shopper is all sold out (it was a limited edition)… Glad to hear that you like it, though!

    Hi there – thanks for supporting Global Fund for Women with contributions from sale of anniversary shopper. Why wait on an anniversary to shop for good? Would love to see you have a featured product a month or something that would raise funds for groups struggling to do good for women – here and away. And congrats on winning plaudits from the Maine Women’s Fund!!!! you go, Anne!
