The Snail Mail Social
The Snail Mail Social began when Arch Drafting Supply,
a local independent art supply shop in San Francisco tweeted
that people weren't buying their stationery. My friend Carolee
and I decided to team up to host letter writing socials at the store,
bringing in her collection of typewriters, custom designed stationery
and various art supplies to share so anyone at the store could write
a letter, send a hello & get away from the blandness of email.
For the most recent social, I was inspired by Valentine's Day
and wanted to express the feeling of an old fashioned love letter,
which is deeply personal and carefully written piece of writing.
