Stickers

It was the early 80s, long before things like AOL Instant Messenger were invading America’s livingrooms. And chances are good that either you, or someone you knew, collected stickers.

I did, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I had a few binders full of stickers – some scratch-and-sniff, most just strategically arranged to look good. Some as part of a collection, and some just because they were fun.

The best part of it, though, is that there was an entire magazine devoted to stickers – the aptly-titled Stickers Magazine. I remember having the debut issue, which I believe came out in 1982 or 1983. I remember when it morphed into Stickers ‘n’ Stuff, and from what I see here, it later de-evolved into, simply, Stuff. Oh, wait, no. That’s another mag. I meant, it de-evolved into Barbie! – exclamation point and all.

Stickers, anyone?

Lulu,

I would love the magazines, if you would tell me how to send postage to you. Thanks.

Hey. I would love to get one of those mags! I am an Aussie and wanted to go to the States just to buy cool stickers when I read the mag!

What is this then?
