Yay, we're at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, September 7th & 8th, from 11AM to 7PM. We're at a corner between Wolcott and Honore, booth number 236.
Not only will we have our Pigeon Post, but we'll also have a gaggle of tuned-up vintage typewriters. Some are so newly tuned that we havne't listed them in the LWA membersite yet, so come and get your paws on one. Look for our air mail striped tent canopy and say hello!
Kathy here. I'm the history nerd behind this blog as well as one half of the stationery shop 16 Sparrows. I'm also co-founder of the member- based group, The Letter Writers Alliance. If you are new here, check out some of the most popular posts and work your way from there.
