We believe there should be beauty at the mailbox

January 1, 1913.


Post Master General Frank H. Hitchcock inaugurated The Parcel Post Service in the United States of America. Dry goods and other products began to fly back and forth across the country on trucks and rail trains. It became an inexpensive way to get a variety of goods to rural customers College students even sent their dirty laundry home to their mothers, as it was cheaper than doing it themselves. It wasn’t until 1914, that little four year old Charlotte May Pierstorff was mailed to her grandparents; after which the mailing of humans was officially banished.


While the daily mail once meant the arrival of handwritten postcards, mail-ordered home goods and even farm fresh eggs; the rise of technology in the 21st century has decreased our daily communication to nothing more than emails, texting and a plethora of social media options. Today our mailboxes boast of little more than monthly bills, credit card applications and a whole host of useless advertisements.


Our goal at The Parcel Post Company is to bring back the magic of mail time through monthly subscriptions to brown paper wrapped parcels filled with handmade items for less than the price of two coffees a week.


We’ll see you at the mailbox.

there are three parcels you can get- little ladies, little dudes, and shabby chic. each one of the come complete with brown paper packaging wrapped up in strings! for as little as $20 one of these parcels can be sitting at your front door or your bff’s front door. i am so loving subscription packages for birthdays and holidays (like Christmas!!) and even better news if you purchase three months or more, you can use the code: CELEBRATE5 to get $5 off!
shopping done. handmade & small businesses supported. and happiness shared. ps: she is having a giveaway on her blog today that you might want to be a part of!
