A limited edition collection of vintage supermarket drawings from the 1970s was recently discovered in North Carolina.

OK, they were all done by Yer Humble Host as a precocious child. But they do demonstrate that I’ve been really obsessed with this stuff for a very long time. I think I captured the essence of the Centennial A&P pretty well for a six-year-old, thanks. I was also proud of my Big Food Star; I think my technique had really matured by age eleven.

I guess that’s enough self-indulgence for one day. Now you all know what a big geek I was, even as a child.
