Today is National Sticker Day!
In honor of the occasion, Sticker Planet, at the Original Famers Market, is giving away a free sticker to every visitor as well as having a 24-hour online-only flash sale on their website offering 25% off all their Stickers-by-the-Sheet.
Owners Hilary and Richard Kraft operate the business started by their parents 32 years ago. The small shop is filled with thousands of fun stickers displayed on rolls and arranged by topic. We stopped by to check out their inventory of bee stickers.
With the help of Sticker Planet store manager Asher Tessier, we found dozens of super cute stickers, sticker books, magnets, and vinyl stickers. No matter what you are looking for, you are sure to find something adorable.
“We have stickers on hundreds of different topics, from flowers to food to animals and much more,” co-owner Hilary Kraft told the Buzz. “We also sell sticker books and activity kits for kids, temporary tattoos that stick to the skin, and vinyl and wall decals. If it sticks, we’ll sell it. Our customers use stickers for crafting, decorating, scrapbooking, journaling, gift-giving, and just plain fun.”
Sticker lovers can choose their favorite designs and purchase them by the sheet. Sticker Planet carries beautiful stickers on countless topics, plus plenty of other fun things that stick like magnets. When we visited, the staff was also getting ready for Valentine’s Day next month. Stickers are a great way for artists of all ages to make a personalized Valentine!
Sticker Planet is kind of legendary in the world of stickers. It’s a favorite stop for tourists who visit the Original Farmers Market.
“We also have lots of local young adults who grew up playing with stickers as well as artists and crafters,” said Tessier.
We are total fans of stickers and have lots of memories of entertaining little ones during long airplane rides or wait times in restaurants. We created our own Larchmont Buzz sticker designed by local graphic artist Mary Sarchizian. Email us if you’d like one.
In case you were wondering, National Sticker Day celebrates the birthday of Stan Avery, inventor of the modern self-adhesive sticker in 1935. Mr. Avery founded the Avery Dennison Corporation in Pasadena and was a generous local philanthropist. He served as chairman of the board of trustees of the California Institute of Technology and was a member of the board of trustees of the Huntington Library and the board of trustees of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Happy National Sticker Day!
