|Mrs. Grossman's Newsletter||March 2012|
This month we have five Value Packs for you and they are pretty cool. Each pack has a really good assortment of stickers and are great for birthday party favors, sticker art pictures and sticker surprises when someone smaller than you needs a little TLC. We asked some of our employees to take one sheet from each pack and use their imaginations to create a one-of-a-kind sticker art card - so see what first-time sticker artists created. Fun! And weird.

As to our Collector's Corner, these stickers were all wrapped up and hidden in a big box behind about ten other big boxes. They are all over twenty-years old but amazingly enough, still in great shape. Andrea loved the mice and baby bears because they are so lively and you can tell a story with them. We've been saving our archival stickers since 1979 and every time I open a carton, it brings back a ton of memories. See what you think.
So let's see what kind of fun Chip and I can show you online - and don't forget, some value packs may contain highest quality 'seconds' (it will be hard to spot the flaw - you know how picky we are). And another don't forget: prices of each Value Pack depends on assortment, assembly time and availability - but you know for sure - these Packs are incredible buys and most are below wholesale and even cost.

THE COLLECTOR'S CORNER

1988 to 1992 - NOSTALGIA AND STICKERS
We found another terrific hidden treasure packed up in three very dusty boxes in the warehouse. And because we found two or three rolls of each sticker, we're able to include more in this assortment. These are definitely vintage and very desireable. Because we could offer you more, you might want to share them with other collectors but don't use them all because really, they are the last of their kind. The collection includes:
- Pin Stripe Tissue paper - We made these in 1988 and each delicate sheet has our name and date printed on the edge. 4 sheets
- Mice People - One of Andrea's favorite stickers. You'll get six, 6" x 6' sheets - 36 mice people total. They are mirror images and perfect for sticker art story telling
- Bear Cubs - Three, 6" x 6" sheets, 2 cubs per sheet, 6 cubs total. These are incredibly simple and really rare; again, they are mirror image so they relate to each other. You might want to frame these rather than use them
- Mice People Small - forty, 3" x 2" 'mods' (sheets), 160 mice total. Mirror image and because we had two rolls of them we could offer you more in this assortment. Again, these are some of mom's favorites
- Labels - These make great book plates and name tags but I wouldn't use them all as they will never be printed again. The collection includes; Kitty Cat - 16 sheets, 2 labels per sheet, 32 labels total; This Little Piggy - 6 sheets, 2 labels per sheets, 12 labels total; Funny Frog - 5 sheets, 2 labels per sheet, 10 labels total; Flower Labels - two different flower arrangements, 12 sheets, 4 labels a sheet, 48 labels total

MY DOLL HOUSE! 1992
This is too cute! We made these twenty years ago and there are only two left. We kept one for our archives and this one, for our collectors.
This is a fold-out two-story doll house that measures about 20" x 22". The stickers are repositionable static cling.
There are about 125 different stickers, just about everything you need to furnish your 'bear' house. The outside of the house is just as cool as the inside and this might be something you want to frame (especially is you are one of our customers and have a store) just as a display for your customers or co-collector friends. Very cool
ORIGINAL RETAIL VALUE: No clue
COLLECTOR'S PRICE: $50.00
