Reviewing The "Vintage" Lisa Frank Stickers Being Sold At Urban Outfitters
One person's account of rediscovering the Lisa Frank stickers of her youth as a grown-ass person.
If you haven't already heard, Urban Outfitters have teamed up to bring the giant surplus of her products made within the years if 1988 to 2008 to the the store. You can buy them online and in stores and the products include all sorts of products from pencils to posters, desk supplies to cookie jars, and most importantly, STICKERS! As a kid, I was obsessed with Lisa Frank stickers, which I would put in my locker and all over my Lisa Frank notebooks and binders.
So when an email popped into my inbox from Urban Outfitters that said "Lisa Frank: Extremely Limited Quantities Available!" I stopped what I was doing and immediately bought two orders of stickers online. Four days later my special Lisa Frank package arrived at my desk and I was thrilled. However, I quickly learned that not all of the sticker sets would be created equal!
The first purchase I made was the Lisa Frank Limited Edition Vintage Sticker Box, $14. The sticker book looks like this and I didn't recognize but now realize were from the late '80s (too young). Here's exactly what else came with it:
I hope this is helpful to anyone considering dropping some of their well-earned, adult money on frivolous, barely-vintage sticker sets. I should mention that Urban Outfitters does let you know that you're purchasing a "pack of stickers similar to the ones pictured, but yours may vary from the photo" so if you aren't okay with getting a random assortment, you might want to opt for the Sticker Box, which is sealed and appears to be from a specific era. Either way, all items have "been hiding away in Lisa's own secret stash," so any way you slice it, it's perfect for nostalgia fiends like myself.
