The Royal Society of Venturesome Parcels program is the closest L.W.A. comes to a subscription service. R.S.V.P. is a themed
mailing over the course of four weeks with one package sent each week. We curate the packages to contain all manner of nifty things, leaning heavily on stationery and other philatelic items. Most mailings have something vintage and are limited to 10 sets.
Each mailing has a theme. We've done Halloween and Food and India and other things, but this new set is more literally connected to letter writing. The newest R.S.V.P. is Air Mail themed! This goes on sale at 3PM CST on June 17th. It is first come, first serve.
In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters!
