Ever since Lauren & Derek sent me a letter from the World’s Smallest Postal Service in 2009, I’ve been obsessed with miniature mail. It makes me want to see how many things I could get away with miniaturizing. Primarily bills. Maybe tiny, cute versions of our monthly health insurance bills would make them seem less scary. But one tiny letter I don’t need to be scared of is this new holiday package from Lea, the “Postmaster” at WSPS.
Lea’s teensy holiday packages have little keepsakes like toys, buttons or — my favorite — compasses inside that act as a playful little “hello” for the holiday season. Lea is selling them for $10 each this year and she’s also hosting a contest on her Facebook page where you can leave a comment about your favorite childhood toy to be eligible to win a free tiny package. You can check out the packages online here or learn more about the postal service’s offerings right here. If you’re looking for a little something to send the person who already has everything, this is a great idea. It’s such a treat to open up these tiny packages, and it’s impossible not to feel like you’re getting something really special. xo, grace
*Also, Lea made an adorable stop-motion video (below) about the mini mailboxes she’s mailing out with packages this year. It’s hard for me to watch this and not squeal. They’re just so adorably tiny.
