Plaid Stamps!

Plaid_Stamp_sign_at_Cracker_Barrel,_Lubbock,_TX_IMG_4691 My Sister reminded me how she got a pair of roller skates with 2 books of Plaid Stamps in 1958! Things were hard to come by for a family of 12 back in the days of the 1950’s .

My Mother would save them up whenever she went to the A&P Supermarket a few blocks from my home at the time.

Every time you went to the store you would get back so many stamps depending on the amount you spent and  then stick them in the book they supplied.
