Brings back lots of memories!
I remember riding w my mom to drop off roll of film, go grocery and back to pick up pictures from that tiny Fox Foto drive up place.
Oh it was vinyl... Chevy Nova but no k-tel.
But I sent them my penny and got 10 albums lol
Oh, ours was a Pontiac Ventura.. but I believe they looked similar to the Nova.
I used to love trips to the Post Office b/c i would get to see the ‘Ten Most Wanted’ posters.. seemed like the craziest, most exotic thing in the world to me- that these dangerous criminals might be lurking around in my town!
I never did the Colombia House thing, i was always afraid that I’d get busted if i got all the albums then didnt buy any more.. or that I’d somehow be on the hook for lots of money i didnt have.. i was kind of a chicken.
Also, does anyone remember ‘green stamps’? Not to be confused with food stamps.. they were like a retail thing that you could use to trade in for stuff from a catalogue?
Yep, it was S&H Green Stamps.Also, does anyone remember ‘green stamps’? Not to be confused with food stamps.. they were like a retail thing that you could use to trade in for stuff from a catalogue?
Bruh that's hilarious because I would read the same posters. It was always on the wall where you applied stamps. Haha that's so funny. We may very well be related lolol
Yes the green stamps... I vaguely remember them. They had perforated edges, right?? (like they were exaggerated so as not to confuse with regular stamps) I can't remember where they came from tho
Didn't you have to fill up a card or something?
S&H Green Stamps was a line of trading stamps popular in the United States from the 1930s until the late 1980s. They were distributed as part of a rewards program operated by the Sperry & Hutchinsoncompany (S&H), founded in 1896 by Thomas Sperry and Shelley Byron Hutchinson. During the 1960s, the company promoted its rewards catalog as being the largest publication in the United States and boasted that it issued three times as many stamps as the U.S. Postal Service. Customers would receive stamps at the checkout counter of supermarkets, department stores, and gasoline stations among other retailers, which could be redeemed for products in the catalog. Top Value Stamps, acquired by Tom Ficara in 1990 and now a division of TVS Television Network, and S&H are the only two surviving legacy stamp programs.
