of course, i'm ALWAYS in favor of snail mail -- so when i heard about a little snail mail competition being put together by a stationery shop in australia, i was all over it.
newspaper taxi is a boutique vintage shop in newtown, australia, and right now they're collecting mail from all over the world in celebration of the snail mail tradition. anyone can enter by sending in some stationery or mail -- a flat card, handmade envelope, stamps, ribbon, whatever -- and all the mail will be displayed in their shop window and online.
THEN, after november 4, they'll pick 3 winners -- one to win the collection of stationery from across the world, and two others to win prize packs from rifle paper co and sycamore street press [pictured above]! awesome. i'd loooove to have that much new stationery at my disposal.
check out the newspaper taxi blog here for all the info you need on entering. good luck!
