snail mail social + a call for correspondents
i'm excited to announce the Snail Mail Social, which is a letter writing social with vintage typewriters, custom stationery and rubber stamps. Carolee and I have organized it in conjunction with Arch Drafting Supply which is an awesome independent art store in the Portrero Hill neighborhood in San Francisco.
typewriters! rubber stamps! custom statonery designed by carolee! and if i can get it together, artistamps designed by me.
if you are in the SF Bay Area, definitely come in and write some letters, decorate your stationery and we will have rubber stamps and ephemera for you to use. i am hoping that after the first social, we will be able to hold more of these events in the future.
The Snail Mail Social will be held on October 8th, 1-4 pm
at ARCH 99 Missouri Street, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94107
Even if you are not in san francisco, there's another way to participate! we want to have a list of willing correspondents available for anyone at the social to write to. maybe you would like a new penpal, or you're a mail artist looking to exchange postcards and other fun stuff. if you're interested in being on the list email me at seasecrets @ gmail dot com your name, address and interests. think of it as a penpal want ad! edit, due to the overwhelming response we have more than enough addresses. thank you everyone for submitting your penpal want ads/addresses!
