I am in LOVE with this wall!! I think I need one of these in my home... That wouldn't be too excessive, right?

Adrienne

This would be such a wonderful solution to my all-too-frequent mad dash to figure out how to mail all my postcards at the end of my trip... simply schedule a visit to the Post Card Cafe! Write and send in one location! While enjoying a coffee!

Cindy R.

This is so neat!

Reg

This is such an awesome idea! It'd be fun if other people picked up the practice!

Love, love, love this! I've always thought letter writing and a tea shop would go well together... But this takes it over the top! I wonder how you get up there? Hmmm...

Sharing on our social media too, thanks!

Kristi

Aaack! I lived in Leiden, where this shop is located, from 2006-2010. This couldn't have been there, then!

I visited with friends in 2013 and we didn't see this then either, although we could only see so much during our limited time. We were there before heading to a calligraphy workshop in Belgium and this would have been right down our alley.

I'll make a note for the next time I visit.
