Hmmm, what percentage of the readership here remembers green stamps?I do.
I remember Blue Chip Stamps and Green Chip Stamps.... I'm an old geezer though. I think one of the catalog stores was out on Lankershim Blvd in North Hollywood(?) I honestly can't remember a single item I ever 'bought' with my stamp books and don't remember seeing a surf mat in the catalog. I do however remember renting the blue and yellow canvas mats from the Sorrento Grill in Santa Monica. My mom would drop my younger brother and me off with 5 or 10 bucks for the day. That was enough for mat rentals, burgers and cokes for lunch. My best guess on a time frame is about 50 years ago. She'd likely be locked up today for child neglect. HAHA - we had a blast!
