Oh dear, it seems that I collected the stamps. Maybe my mom did too, vague, vague memories of her collecting.

There's a S&H Green Stamps sign attached to a tree on one of my riding routes. I'm surprised the paint has held up this long.

Not only do I remember the S&H Green Stamps, I remember the product redemption store.

When I was a 20yr old and expecting my first child, my Mom took me there shopping for baby things like a stroller, crib, high chair, and so many other things I needed for the baby.
She had been saving her books of Green Stamps for years.

Perfect example of how things were made to last back in the day!

Except when you go to a rusty part of town for a particular kind of meat and they still have the 1950's style butcher display case, with some flies hanging around.

Welllll, not everything. I am around thousands of classic cars every year, and they were not made that well -- especially post WWII.

Of course casey, actually agree but still...

My bro was an MG fan I was a Morgan fan - til he told me their frames were wood - shot my dreams down pretty fast.
My first husband had a Royal Enfield which would never start in the rain. He figured anything that would start in the rain was kept in England - all others were shipped overseas. LOL!

Morgan is still around. The closest dealer to you is in Toronto. I've driven a handful of them. I have a couple friends who own them.

They still look the same, but they have removed all but a tiny amount of wood from the frame. Just enough to be traditional, but not enough to be a problem.

Several years ago, the local Albertson’s would give stamps for your purchases that were good towards buying cookware, in store. I got several pieces, and they’re probably my favorite everyday pots and pans. Oven-safe to 500°, and even though they’re not “non-stick,” I’ve never had a problem making even eggs, although I do add a bit of oil. I need to take some pics and decipher the name on the handles; maybe one of you guys’d Know something about the company. But they were bought with stamps, albeit not S&H green stamps!
