Please, Please, Lady Postman

world's smallest postal service!

The art of letter writing is officially dead. (Passive-aggressive Post-Its do not count.)

Perhaps a Renaissance is in order. A tiny one, at that.

Postmaster Lea Redmond of the World’s Smallest Postal Service can transcribe any communication into a letter so teensy, you need a magnifying glass to read it.

Redmond sets up a full-service post at a local shop, where she’ll transcribe and package your note. Each letter is sealed with a minuscule stamp of wax inscribed with the sender’s initials, then placed in a full-size envelope outfitted with said magnifying glass.

Sweet nothings can be sent via her website, too, but they’re typed in an even tinier font. Redmond is available for parties and events, and even makes deliveries in full postal regalia.

Making it kind of a big to-do.

World’s Smallest Postal Service will be at The Curiosity Shoppe tomorrow, 2-6 p.m.; 855 Valencia Street, between 19th and 20th Streets (415-671-5384 or curiosityshoppeonline.com); online at
