Today I popped into one of my favorite coffee shops in Asheville, Double D’s Coffee & Desserts! If you’re ever wandering through the streets of Downtown you can’t miss this, mainly because it’s a bright red double-decker bus parked in a patio.
Besides its iconic English face, I love the bus’s whimsical inside decor and the upstairs windows that are perfect for people watching. Another cool perk? The coffee beans and syrups are local. My favorite is the dirty chai!
Double D’s is such a neat place to hang out, sip on a drink, and watch the world go bye. Next time I go I’ll remember to charge my phone beforehand so it doesn’t die mid photo shoot, haha!
If you know me then you’re probably aware that I cover everything in stickers. Even my backpack has patches from places I’ve visited. Not only do stickers liven up a plain old water bottle or laptop case, they can be conversation starters! For instance, I’m obsessed with Vineyard Vines and put their whale stickers on pretty much any surface that’s sticker-able and a girl in my math class ended up talking to me solely because she loves Vineyard Vines just as much. (Who could blame her, their whale logo is so adorable!)
As many of you sticker connoisseurs know, lots of companies that used to give out stickers for free now no longer do that. There’s only a short list of retailers that still give out stickers for free (all you have to do is ask):
Mail a self addressed, stamped envelope to LuLaLax Stickers, ChalkTalkSPORTS, 151 Woodward Avenue, Norwalk CT 06854
You get a sticker with each purchase, but you can also buy them directly from Amazon!
Send a self addressed, stamped envelope to Sun Bum 101, N. Orlando Ave, Cocoa Beach FL 32931

Word is they’ve stopped making stickers, but email them at CustomerService@KielJamesPatrick.com to ask for some, it can’t hurt!
You can still buy stickers though! Some companies will even pay for your shipping if you purchase a certain amount of sticker merchandise. Others will give you the sticker for free and have you pay for the shipping. Either way, it’s still a pretty good deal.
