When the store opened in 1980, it was promoted in the Muppet Show Fan Club newsletter: "There is a charming little building in New York City on Lexington Avenue. The facade is brick with carved cherubs and arched window. It is wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling Muppet Stuff! At MUPPET STUFF everything that has a Muppet on it is available -- books, clothes, records, jewelry, toys, games and much more. New products are introduced regularly. MUPPET STUFF is located at 833 Lexington Avenue, New York City, NY 10021."
The additional information in a curated entry on the Jim Henson's Red Book website explained:
Items from the store could also be ordered by mail through Muppet Magazine. In the back of several issues, one page was dedicated to products such as a Muppet Magazine t-shirt, plush dolls, music albums, toys and books. Special catalogues were also made available through the mail.
The 1984 documentary Henson's Place features a sequence filmed inside the Muppet Stuff store.
Later in the 80s, other outlets opened up in the US and Canada. By 1988, Toronto had a Muppet Stuff store located at 2588 Yonge Street on the corner of Albertus Ave. Another store later opened at Bayshore Shopping Centre in Ottawa.
