My Mrs. Grossman’s Vintage Stickers Are Cheaper Than From the Factory

Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 11.53.44 AM

I’ve written about this before and here’s another example that my vintage Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers on Etsy are cheaper than the limited sets they are selling direct from the factory.  I currently have in stock the dragonflies and hummingbirds, but I am selling 40 of the hummingbirds (in larger form) at only $12.95 and 90 of the dragonflies at $14.95.  The factory is only offering an assortments of 20 short strips or 76 mods at $40!

More Stickers from the Deep Dark Inventory

My multiple recent sticker sales have prompted me to filter through my boxes of inventory and create more listings.  There are always buyers out there asking me, “Do you have this one?” or that one?  So I’ve been consolidating so that I can more easily find what people are looking for.  I can also offer those vintage or more hard-to-find stickers that our twelve-year-old selves remember so well.   Including Mrs. Grossman’s as always, plus some Sandylion and Hambly. I can always make up a custom order for reduced shipping and a discount. And free stickers are sent with large purchases. If there’s something you’ve been looking for – just ask!  So peruse away, I will continue to add even more in the future…. Etsy Stickers

Christmas Holiday Stickers

It’s not too early to start thinking about what stickers you’re going to add to the front and/or back of your Christmas Card envelopes.  Or what stickers you’re going to add to a gift whether on the wrapping or inside.  Or which you can stick in a stocking.  Or that you can give to the little ones to keep them busy for all of several minutes.  Or the ones with which you can make your own vintage Christmas cards.  Feel free to ask for special orders or certain amounts differing from those in the listings if I have a large inventory of the specific design. And don’t forget to check out my entire sticker inventory if you’re going the gifting route. Click on images for ordering:

New Mother Lode of Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers

img_7132

During my last garage sale venture, my last stop was a senior center flea market where I spotted a lady with rolls and rolls of vintage Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers.  She had some customers buying a few strips here and there and I though I would wait until she was free to ask if she might consider selling any of her rolls.  So after milling about, I returned when the coast was clear and dared to ask my question.  To my great surprise, she said, “Sure!”  And even more surprising were the prices she asked.  For small rolls she asked $1-$2, medium $3 and super large $5.  I ended with two bags full for $60.  I’ve been busy listing the new inventory and thought to myself, “I should really contact my favorite customers in Japan who love to order large quantities.”  So I did. And that night I heard the “cha-ching” on my phone when I receive two orders.  $250 and $225 worth to two of my customers in Japan, selling out a few of the new varieties.  From what is left, please head on over to my Etsy Store’s Sticker Section and see if there are any you can’t live without:

My Sticker Prices Beat the Factory

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 1.59.02 PM

I sell miles of Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers in my Etsy Store that apparently I’m next to giving away considering the Mrs. Grossman’s Factory recently put out an email that they are selling only ten lots of vintage stickers (just like the ones I sell) for $50 each.  The lots only contain 16 different varieties of 3 modules each which equals 48 modules.  I generally sell multiple strips of modules numbering 48 and higher from $9.95 for the lots.  And they, too, are vintage from 1979-1988. I currently have 137 listings in my Sticker Department alone. Not that I’m considering raising my prices, but if you want a great deal, you don’t have to order from the factory, head to my store on Etsy:

More Vintage Mrs. Grossman’s Stickers For Sale!

DSC_0408

Just the other day I posted “Selling Stickers” detailing how I had gone back out later Saturday morning and found the guy from whom I had purchased stickers what seems like several years ago now.  And when I got home and listed many of them and sold almost $200 worth within a few days, I thought, I knew I should have bought more.  So what did I do?  I emailed the craigslist ad of the garage sale.  A day went by and nothing.  But the next day I got a phone call.  It was the Sticker Guy.  Well, really his wife, but she passed me on to him and we set up a time to meet the next day.  I was punctual, went on over, and I asked him how much for the whole lot which was about 5 boxes of different sizes.  What is shown above is about half.  He said a hundred bucks.  I tried to hesitate.  When he said, “Too much?… There is a lot there…” and I said, “Okay.”  I had made a hundred bucks in a day off the first load I bought from him.  And I would make $132 the night of listing just a portion of this lot.  I asked him if he had worked for the company, which I thought for sure he had.  He said no, he had bought a container years ago from the warehouse Mrs. Grossman’s had had in the area.  He had had these boxes for years.  Everything in them is from the ’70’s and ’80’s.  And he was tired of dealing with them.  I backed my car up to his garage, he reinforced the large boxes with duct tape, put on his moving gloves and shoved them in the back of my car.  I felt like I had won the lottery.  Need any stickers? Any specific requests, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Most of the above, plus the first lot, are now listed in my store on Etsy:
