Handmade & Handwritten Event

As a part of Montclair Independent Retailer Week, we are hosting a card making party - "Handmade & Handwritten" - on Saturday, October 9th, from 10:00am-1:00pm. Come join us for a fun morning of card making! There is no charge for the event and no signing up. Just stop in any time between 10am and 1pm for the fun!

The workshop will be busy with card making stations for both children and adults. Enjoy some coffee and refreshments while you learn to create wonderful little notes and postcards. In addition, as a part of our ongoing mission to promote the handmade and handwritten notes, we will supply the pens to write the notes, the envelopes and stamps to ready them for the mail - and we will even have a mailbox for you to drop them in! Send a little personalized note to let someone know you are thinking of them!

Learn more about the "Handmade & Handwritten" mission! The idea started from my card making fun and has blossomed into a little mission. It's so very easy and very special - I pledged to make or buy one handmade card each week and write a personalized note to someone I care about. A handwritten note speaks volumes about how much you care and carries your personalized voice to family and friends. Join the mission and pledge to write one handmade and handwritten note each week from now until the end of the year.

Don't have time to make all of those cards? We have a beautiful selection of handmade notes from local artists - Aubreeze, Happenstance Creations, Stefanie Silverman, and Keira Boertzel-Smith. Check out their beautiful creations and snag a pack for yourself.

Remember, in ten years, someone you love will be able to open up your handmade and handwritten note and once again hear your "voice" sending your love. Somehow, emails and test messages just don't feel the same!

See you on Saturday,
