In celebration of my new banner. I will feature something I loved from the 80’s.
One of my most exciting trips each summer was with my Aunt Tricia to the teacher store. She would get her class supplies, while I took in the smell of the store (it just smelled like school) and gawked at all the stickers. Stickers were my passion back then! ha. Smelly stickers were of course my favorite.
On another one of my mom’s visits, she brought my sticker collection. (That of course I had forgot all about.) A shoe box full of 80’s stickers! Everything from The Gremlins, E.T., Star Wars and Strawberry Shortcake. Most of them I would not dare stick on anything, they were too pretty. Especially the scratch and sniff ones. So they are all still in good shape. Imagine my surprise when I searched ebay and discovered people are collecting 80’s scratch & sniff stickers! Some of the sheets are going for $15 and up. I can see why, they are totally cute and still smell really good… especially the dill pickle and pizza!
I love Bubble Dog’s Scratch and Sniff sticker collection. All the stickers I always wanted on a web site! If you are interested in going back in time for a bit click here.
Check out these Apple Computer stickers from the 80’s. The photo on the right are stickers from posters I used to by through the Weekly Reader at school. They had silly sayings on them. The sillier the better when you’re 10.
Did you collect something when you were a kid? Anything 80’s? Please share!
