My Aunt used to collect these back in the '60s, especially when we lived in VA. She hit the motherlode one day when my Uncle bought a brand new 1963 Chevrolet Impala at a Alexandria Chevy dealership that gave S&H greenstamps with new car purchases. The car was around $3200. I was with them when they bought the car, but don't recall the name of the dealership. I'm sure it was Alexandria though (around August 1963).

My grandmother was a freak for S&H stamps. There was a redemption center in Arlington but I don't remember where. Gas stations were one of the biggest pushers of these stamps as I recall.

There was a green stamp store in Marlow Heights MD right next to Iverson Mall. I think my parents got a BBQ grill there one time after collecting those stamps forever.


I seem to remember there was also a redemption store in Annandale just to the left of the Super Giant food store. And I believe my Dad also bought himself a round charcoal grill there after cashing in some "books" of stamps.

I also worked at Peoples, and was there when they did the remodeling that tore the soda fountain out. BOY, is THAT something that's disappeared from the American scene - soda fountains in "5&10" stores. I used to enjoy the sundays they served in stainless steel fluted bowls. And after the remodeling, they decided to keep the ice machine running. We'd often have folks stop by to fill up their beer coolers in the summer.
