valentines, va.

My mom and I took our 2nd annual trip to Valentines, VA this year to mail all of our valentines! It is always a nice day driving there and sending off our pretty cards and letters! 

I just love small post offices! There is something so special about them and this one is no exception. this small building houses a tiny post office and what used to be a market, but we found out that has since closed due to the lady retiring.

You can pick up a few Valentines souvenirs to remember your trip to the special post office! They sell mugs, t-shirts, postcards and koozies.

A box full of koozies for sale. I bought one this year!

If you are ever up for a fun little journey next year I suggest adding the Valentines, VA post office to your list! And if you live to far away to make it there, you can always mail a stamped envelope full of pre-addressed stamped letters to them and they will make sure that they all receive the special Valentines, VA postmark and hand stamp! (More about the hand stamp in an upcoming blog post)
