If you are celebrating the 4th with us here in the U.S., we hope you have a wonderful day full of stars, stripes, sunshine and sparklers. We’ll be closing the shop early at 5PM so be sure to snatch up your party goods before the fireworks. Cheers, America!
Father’s Day is coming up and we think a “Thank You” is in order — for every hug, piece of advice, provision, adventure and hard lesson. It is an awesome time to celebrate the men in our lives! Stop by for the perfect card + gift we know he is sure to use & love.
As many of you know from previous blog posts that May is always our best mail month of the year! We literally receive a huge bulk load of amazing mail containing sweet letters and booth invitations to the National Stationery Show in NYC. When Joshua saw the situation on my desk last week he shot this little video above. – You must click play!
I opened a bunch of the mail on Snapchat this year for everyone to see & also shot a few pics above of some of the beautiful hand lettering on the envelopes for you to see. Stay tuned, next week I’ll be posting some photos from the show!
