Today is another Shop Local post! Snail Mail is a family owned card business in Rockville, Va. The owner, Carrie, and I actually go all the way back to high school. We played field hockey for our respective high schools, and played together in a summer league the summer before senior year.
Carrie ended up going to Randolph Macon College to play, and ended up meeting her husband!
They currently live in a beautiful 1940s home that they’re restoring with their pups and chickens.
Carrie is super passionate about serving others, and she incorporates this into her business. Every quarter, she picks a non-profit that supports immigrants for a percentage of her sales to benefit.
You can find her cards in several businesses throughout Virginia, including in Richmond and Orange.
All of her cards are hand-drawn and painted. They’re absolutely gorgeous! During the holidays this past year, she introduced handcrafted ornaments. You can order a custom family portrait, too!
Cards start at about $6, but you can currently get a set of 6 for $30 (aka one free card) with the code BUY6 when you check out.
Carrie is the artist behind every single piece and these cards and other artisan products are a great way to continue communicating and helping others!

This post is not sponsored in any way, I simply want to share small, locally owned businesses and the good they are doing in the world during this time.
