A charming and delightful show opened last Friday night at SF Center for the Book --
You're going to want to go see it. The show is up till October 4 so if you live in the Bay Area or you are coming for a visit, you're in luck!
But -- I know some of you reading my blog aren't going to be able to make it here so here is a little show-and-tell for you guys so you don't feel too left out.
|A Make and Take Table for folding and decorating envelopes...|
|There was a good turn out for opening night! Lots of postal lovers out there.|
|The mail art group I'm in was invited to help out at the envelope folding table....and we did!|
|Lots of paper was supplied! And rubber stamps, washi tape, glue -- bring your own imagination.|
|The crowd had no trouble with that....everybody was on board and that was one popular table..|
|Even though I was "on duty" I managed to play a little bit myself..|
|By the time the first hour was up and I got to look around all the food was gone! Don't you feel sorry for me?|
|I had to feast on eye candy instead -- and there was plenty of it!|
|Some wonderful postal goodness -- vintage stamps relating to mail.|
|I especially loved these French stamps with a postal theme...|
|And, who wouldn't love looking at a vintage envelope in a glassine sleeve?|
|Ar mail stripes? I am a sucker for them -- and don't they look lovely displayed like that?|
|Right up t the minute, this display included the new From Me to You stamps.|
