Wonderful Saturday Finds


I found some lovely goodies when I went out garage-saling this morning. These were all from one spot. Had I known, I could have stopped there because I didn't find anything at the other spots I went to. I remember riding in to Oklahoma City with my mom, sister, aunt and cousins to visit the S & H green stamp redemption store. Trading stamps were fazed out soon after I got married so I didn't get to save up for very much. I remember selecting a tabletop ironing board, a plant stand, and a dictionary. Ours were called Texas Gold Stamps and they were yellow, of course. It was fun while it lasted. I guess the loyalty cards you get at the grocery and drug stores and have replaced the stamps.
