So you order something off of etsy lets say. The person on the other end has to most of the time hand write your address on the envelope, either go to the post office to get a stamp or get it weighed to pay the correct postage, and then put it in the mail box themselves or the post office clerk will do it. It is a process that has a lot of personal touch. Its hard to think of it that way when buying something off the internet can be an impersonal thing when all you have to do is give your creditcard info and click "purchase". The amount of hands that your package goes through must be numerous. I had to see what the show How its Made had to say about the Canadian postal system, it looks like some pretty cool machines do the sorting, but your letter or package is still handled and delivered by foot or vehicle...pretty fascinating.
I recently got some beautiful felt in the mail!
Isn't it beautiful?
I can hardly wait to craft with it
I ordered these in the mail and am SO happy
with them. The packaging was very cute,
wrapped enough to give away without more gift wrap needed!
