    There is a Ben Franklin in Ironwood (Upper Peninsula of MI and WI border). It is mostly a tourist shop now, but we love going there every time we go home.

    My mom collected these and got some pretty cool things with them, we loved to put them in the books for her as kids.

    Sea Monkeys were pretty cool growing up. I remember the packaging to this day. They were advertised in the back pages of comic books.

    Great thread. Sorry I didn't see this b4.
    Makes me feel like shooting a pix of my Timex Sinclair. It's on my book shelves somewhere.
    I got my first football with those S&H Stamps.
    Thanks for the memory.
