Comment on Green Stamps

A dear friend commented on the remark I had made about Green Stamps not being "up north."

"Green stamps were in the North also. It was interesting to see that you said to ask someone from the south. Yup, us Michiganders licked them stamps and stuck them in the books too. As a matter of fact, that was one of my jobs as a child. The other one was ironing my dad's handkerchiefs on my little ironing board with my little iron that really worked."


  1. HI! I tried to find an email link for you but couldn't. Thank you for stopping over at Nickels-n-Dimes. I had to remove your post since it did not take the readers directly to a "deals" post for this current week. If you want to come back and repost, I'd love it.

    Thanks again!

  2. My mother saved green stamps and when my dad died, my mother was making 50 cents an hour. Over the summer, one of her sisters held her job for her and we went with 2 other sisters across country in a station wagon, visiting every national park, Disneyland, and the Seattle world's fair with tickets bought with S&H Green Stamps!
