“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman's life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When the government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for her own choices.” // Facts #rbg, Artwork @rickfrausto

It is always a great day when you get a Penny Post delivery 🙂 Thank you for keeping open by mail and sending the necessities 🙂
Emailed today with a request for stationary suggestions (cause letters are important right now!! 💌) and Emily emailed immediately with photos and prices 🙂. I called in the payment info and she assured me it would not be saved anywhere, just immediately processed for this transaction. She put my purchases aside and I will swing by and pickup when I can this week! Such a lovely shopping experience and this store is an absolute GEM. 12/10, WILL shop here again. Highly recommend you all do the same 🎉🛍.
I had no idea someone in Alexandria carried Hobonichi products! (Thanks Alexandria Stylebook!) I have ordered Hobonichis from Japan for a couple of years! Eager to come in and check out your shop!! Ironically I have a shipment on the way, but good to know for future plans. Thank you!
Dear Penny Post, I bought an awesome ballpoint pen - fat and short - Kaweco? - in January, gave it away and now, I regret, because I like it so much. Any chance I can buy another and you mail to me in Hawaii? Mahalo, Ming Wei
Can't wait to come and see your shop! I just sent you a DM earlier today, please check and let me know if you're interested in the opportunity. Looking forward to connecting!
So exciting Amy!! Congratulations!
