|My theme for #23 Round of ABC Wednesday: |
Signs & Such of San Benito County, California
Yesterday afternoon, at Bertuccio's, a produce market in Hollister, I remembered I had yet to photograph a sign or such that began with the letter I. Twice, I combed that store in search of the letter I. Amazingly, no vegetable, fruit, or food product began with I.
Aha! The vintage weigh scale on display had something: IN TRADE. The complete phrase was NOT LEGAL FOR USE IN TRADE. I have no idea what that means.

I think it means that the scale is only to get an idea of how much something weighs. They can't guarantee that the scale is very accurate. But that's a guess.ReplyDelete
If I'm recalling correctly, the scale had a 1904 date on it. It surprises me that non-useful weight scales might've been produced then.Delete
Hmm no idea what that means but I like your inventive find for the letter IReplyDelete
Grazie, Birgit. Fortunately for me, the young woman working at the market thought I was more amusing than crazy.Delete
Creative post and photo for I ~ReplyDelete
Happy Day to you,

A lawyerly response!ReplyDelete
1904 ... I bet it's just about as accurate now as it was then. :)ReplyDelete
I guess that the forst commentor is right, sounds logical ;-)ReplyDelete
Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week

I think Liz is on the right track, too, about the weight scale.Delete
No Iceberg lettuce?ReplyDelete
You got me wondering. It's not easy finding iceberg these days. Romaine yes. Spring greens, yes. Iceberg, where the heck is it?Delete
Great find from your hunt for I :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Indrani. :-)Delete
