Send More Mail | Urbanic

Have I mentioned lately that I want to live in our store window this month?! Mel and I brainstormed one work-day and came up with the idea to go completely postal using some of the fun mail and packages that we get at the shop.

The morning of the install, our pal and local calligrapher Rachel Meadows came in at like 5 a.m and scripted text onto the chalkboard for us. I watched in amazement – (with coffee) as the chalkboard became transformed into an over-sized postcard.  We of course kept things legit and equipped the postcard with some Urbanic postage stamps.

To finish it off, we used some of our favorite things –  brown paper packages, an old typewriter, a white mailbox, and even a few scattered love notes.

    This is amazing! I would want to live in that window too. I hope it will become some sort of permanent display after!!
