Some of us aboard the sticker train have been talking about where we find our favorite stickers along with where/how to get a bargain on them. Come and share your sticker finding tips :) 

As all of you well know, I enjoy stickers so much! It is such fun to get use them in a variety of ways such as in personalizing or making cards to handing out to kids at Trunk or Treat at church to of course, putting aboard our Sticker Trains.

Christian Book and Oriental trading are wonderful online sticker sources. For me, they both offer Christian stickers along anything from cute critters to Happy Birthday to flowers, etc.

In "person" there are craft stores such as Hobby Lobby that offer weekly coupons along with bargain places such as Dollar Tree :)

What are some of your favorite sticker places?

Sadly there are no Family Dollar out Dollar General out here :/ I have heard about them and glad you get to go there, Sophia :) I also get stickers at Walmart and CVS. CVS reminder, that they do send percentage off coupons most every week and sometimes even in the snail mail. I have learned those are combinable! :) Thanks for sharing!

Huh.....I'm at CVS all the time with coupons so I will have to see what they have for stickers! Guess they are near the cards which I don't normally get at CVS.

I get stickers all sorts of places. I bought some recently at Target in the dollar section. They get really cute ones like lately they had "The Secret Life of Pets"stickers and they are great! I like to get stickers on clearance so I can share with several of my buddies on here. ;)

I am purging my daughter's stash and my stash.  I also get sticker books off PBS and Bookmooch and cut them up, as well as Little Free Library www.littlefreelibrary.org and patiently order stickers from AliExpress in China. (Yeah, that's where those cute Metroyska doll sticky notes, llama sticky notes, Hello Kitty and panda stickers came from.

> Ali Express Coupon Code should be inserted here shortly <

My primary source of posting books each year is a pre-school booksale.  I get the books at the end of the sale, turn over the books by listing them on PBS and obtain new books for our school library.  (I pay shipping).  From these, I pull any sticker books I find and also include those in sticker swaps as almost every single one is incomplete.

I also get stickers from PBS members for our school, but since those are earmarked for school, I NEVER include those in sticker swaps. Those go straight to school unless the school won't take them.

Yes Sophia, you have to be paitent when ordering from overseas, realizing it takes 6-8 weeks for your order, plus time in case of weather problems.  So, if it's July, it's time to order Halloween stickers from China, maybe Holiday stickers too.

If anyone DOES want to order from AliExpress, I have requested a coupon code from the site and ask that you contact me before ordering.  I have ordered quite a large stash and wouldn't like to have you duplicate my stash if you are only ordering for this group like I did.  I have TONS (hundreds) of stickers that I have not posted yet from AliExpress alone, and just picked up more stickers last night from my love of all things cheap, Daiso.  Here's some previews of stickers coming in the future, courtesy of Daiso last night




I am going to start something new for the next sticker train, called SURPRISE PACK.  This will be a small envelope with SURPRISE STICKERS inside.  Take it, and maybe put one of your own in?  I thought it would be fun to have a SURPRISE PACK added with tiny stickers.
