Tiny package party!

Yesterday, I stopped by The Curiosity Shoppe to see the Jason Polan show, and happened to catch Emily at the register making these tiny packages and letters! I was so stunned by cuteness that I forgot to take a photo.

Luckily, the good folks at The Curiosity Shoppe had me covered. And it turns out there’s a party involved:

For the past couple of years The Curiosity Shoppe has been the happy host of The World’s Smallest Post Service. Once a month artist Lea Redmond sets up her portable letter-writing station and proceeds to dazzle and delight customers with her miniature letter-writing skills. Now the fine folks at Chronicle Books have teamed up with Lea to create an amazing kit so that you too can create and send the most darling diminuitive missives you’ve ever seen.

We’ll be celebrating Lea and The World’s Smallest Post Service Kit this Saturday from 6-8pm at the Shoppe. Come on down and meet Lea and get your hands on one of her fantastic kits! There will be snacks!!

WHAT: World’s Smallest Post Service Party
WHEN: Saturday, May 28th, 6-8pm
WHERE: The Curiosity Shoppe (855 Valencia St. btwn 19th & 20th Sts.)

    The first time I heard of this was thanks to Elsewhere Public Works.

    Here’s a photo of one of her tiny letters next to a wooden hobo coin.

      Speaking of which, I saw three people still trying to do it today. They said the coins and CD were no longer available, but they managed to buy the map.
