I would love to hang out here. In addition to being a stationery/gift store, the Regional Assembly of Text has a monthly letter writing club. !!! How brilliant. I love hand-written letters (who doesn't), but other than thank-you notes, it's rare that I actually take the time to sit down and write a letter. Wouldn't it be nice to have a monthly time set aside to write a few letters and gather with friends?
And, they have a reading room of rare magazines and self-published books! I love that they not only sell them, but that they call it a reading room-- implying that they won't be annoyed if you want to spend an hour or two just browsing and hanging out.
Considering the Regional Assembly of Text is located in Vancouver, meaning not available to me (or most of the readers of this blog) (although there are some in Vancouver! Hi!), I'm inspired to start my own letter-writing club with friends. Wouldn't that be fun?
[PS - now seems an appropriate time to publicly thank
my awesome brother-in-law, from whom I received a
mix cd in the mail last night! An old playlist of duets
he and my sister love that he'd burned for me once before
when I was younger and had since lost.]
