Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you to everyone who made it out to our last official Postcrossing meetup in Aurora. We had such a great time I decided to set another one up! This meeting will take place in Stanley Marketplace in front of Rolling Smoke BBQ across from Trunk Nouveau and Mr. B’s Wine and Spirits, the place we held the meetup in October. In conjunction with the meetup, we will also be doing a fun, postcard and stationery (washi tape, stickers, envelopes, pens, etc.) themed Secret Santa, you can even throw some cozy items in as well, for example: socks, candles, tea, hot chocolate, etc.! The max you can spend on your gift(s) will be $20. To help me set you up with your secret Santa, please send me a message with the following questions answered:
