S and H Green Stamps


Remember S and H green stamps? I do! Each time you bought groceries, the clerk would hand you stamps equivalent to what you bought. There were blank stamp books available. Once you filled up all the pages, they could be redeemed for cool stuff at one of their redeption centers. I remember riding into Oklahoma City with my mom, sister, aunt and cousins to visit the S and; H green stamp redemption store. It was lots of fun.


After I got married, I went to our grocery store and they offered Texas Gold stamps. I would LOVE to make a necklace with some of those stamps. I just haven't come across any. They stopped issuing them sometime in the 80's.
