    Today's post about chenille bedspreads reminded me of the one I had in my room when I was a teenager. Mother got it with S&H Green Stamps (trading stamps). You could get all kinds of things with trading stamps, ranging from toys to linens, to cookware, dishes, lamps, furniture, most anything. After I married and moved to Dallas, we also got Gold Bond stamps and Top Value stamps. My daughter still uses a table lamp that my husband and I got with trading stamps shortly after we were married, and I have several pieces of Revere Ware cookware. In fact my kitchen would have been kind of sparsely furnished back then had it not been for those stamps!

    Oh, yes do I remember S & H stamps. We would go out of the stores with rolls and rolls of stamps. You couldn't wait until that book was filled. And yes I bought many of items for the house with these stamps. Oh the memories--

    Oh, yes, I remember S&H green stamps. And Top Value. Back then you had to "lick" them to put them in the books (or wet with something). We got the greatest things with them!

    My Mom saved Green Stamps and yellow Top Value stamps. We got all kinds of suff with them. The one I remember most was a Sunburst clock. My Mother loved that clock.

    I remember buying a clock after we were married that we kept for years. Mostly I remember how bad they tasted when we licked them to glue them in. Too impatient to wait to get a sponge or wet cloth!
