Wherever I go I check out the mailbox situation. I can’t help myself. I need to know how people get their mail, and where I can drop my outgoing correspondence off (my never ending quest for postcards became a bit of a joke). There were all sorts of fun receptacles in Okinawa – I loved it!

Stephanie and I met through by brick and mortar boutique. She is a fabulously crafty lady who binds her own books and is just as stationery obsessed as I am. You should check out her work: you’ll thank me. We became friends over the years, and when she and her awesome family moved to Okinawa, we started exchanging regular letters and notes and are closer than ever. Not only is she awesome to hang out with, but was a huge help in regards to all things Japan. I would probably still be trying to buy postcard stamps at the post office if she weren’t there to help with the transaction (smiling and bowing only got me so far).
