The first panel of the brochure's interior is a brief history of the Nappy Collectibles brand and history. The inner two panels of the interior show items for sale and their prices, including a button, a t-shirt, a bag, and an apron, all displaying the same design of a smiling woman accompanied by the phrase "HAPPY I'M NAPPY".
