18 May 2024 - Ocean Springs, MS "Downtown" Meet-up

:world_map: CITY/REGION: Ocean Springs, MS
:round_pushpin: MEETUP PLACE: “French Kiss” on Washington Ave
:calendar: DATE: May 18th, 2024
:alarm_clock: TIME: 1000 to 1130 (CST)
:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: Anticipating between 4 and 10 people. Meeting over coffee. We plan to do some sharing, some show-and-tell, swaps and trades, and a little signing. Main goal is sharing our love of postcards and Postcrossing, passing along cool tips, fun stories, etc. While card signing is not the primary goal of the Meetup, there will be a card designed and everyone usually leaves with about 10 signed cards. They will be available at cost, so please let me know when you RSVP how many cards you are likely to want.
French Kiss is a fabulous coffee, bakery and gelato place in the downtown shopping area of Ocean Springs. Having the meeting in the morning leaves the afternoon free for visiting the galleries, shops or beaches right outside the door. Parking is where you can find it along the streets and under the oak trees; not metered. There are also a few small (free) city parking areas scattered around.


Washington Ave IS exit 50 off of I10. Take Exit 50 and go south; in about 5 minutes you will cross Bienville (the main E-W street in Ocean Springs) and right after you cross the train tracks start hunting for a parking spot, as French Kiss is a very short distance from the tracks.

I have ordered 100 Meet-up cards from Moo. Here is the card:

:point_up: Please make sure to read the Meetup Guidelines before signing up for a meetup.

Just an update to December post - unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. :frowning: I hope you all have a wonderful time, and if there is another in the future, I will try to join that one.

PM me your address if you want to and we’ll send you one of the cards from there. Sorry you can’t make it - but thanks for letting me know!

Oh my goodness - I would LOVE that! Thank you! I’ll PM you my address.

Hi, Laurie! It’s getting close to your meetup! I’m really looking forward to it - that’s such a pretty area! I asked for 25 cards, but I can take less if you have more people asking. But, I’ll still go with 25 if you have them!
See you then - Tanya

I think it will be Ok. There are only 55 cards “claimed” so far, and I was going to keep 20 myself, so there is still no concern. Thanks for your editing tips. I was able to make about half your changes. I’m still learning PhotoShop and had a couple merged items that I couldn’t undo. I’m still generally pleased with it - Moo delivered them yesterday. They are a very nice quality, with a fiber weaving in the card material, and the card face has a sort of waxy coating, so they won’t rip or tear easily. They averaged 68 cents a card with the bulk order.

Hi! Its almost meetup time!!! :smiley:
