Mail Sale 2019 update

I have to thank my friends at the Puget Sound Postcrossing Group and the Puget Sound Correspondence Society for convincing me to set up Venmo and Zelle accounts for the Mail Sale Saturday. I am so excited to offer both these options for payment, as well as the old standbys – cash and PayPal! Hope to see you all there 😀

Mail Sale 2019

Our 4th Annual mail-themed garage sale will take place Saturday, Nov. 16th from 11am-5pm (in Seattle). The webshop will be closed during the weekend so that we don’t get inventory confused. There will be an online Mail Sale site which will go live around 7pm on Sat. 11/16 and run until Thurs. 11/21

For a preview of items that will be available for sale, check out our instagram feed, facebook page or flickr album.

Tuesday Post: The Smallest U.S. Post Office

The “Smallest U.S. Post Office” in the United States, located near in Grimshawes, N.C. The tiny 5-foot by 6-foot office served from 1878 until 1953. After falling into disrepair, it was moved to its current location in 1970. It’s roadside and open every day for curious visitors snapping photos.

Has anyone been there? I’m curious, does it still look like this postcard?

Directions from Cashiers: From US Highway 64, take Highway 107 South for 1.7 miles to Whiteside Cove Road on the right. Drive 3.9 miles to the tiny building on the right.

Sunday School: Institute of American Deltiology


Did you know there is an Institute of American Deltiology? It is in Myerstown, Pennsylvania (about an hours drive from Harrisburg).

The I.A.D. was started by Donald Brown and contains over 1 million postcards. Housed in an old general store, the I.A.D. was established to act as a library, research center and gallery with a focus is on North American postcards. Included in the collection are resources supporting the collection, such as books, periodicals, slides and news bulletins.
