Penny Post, Old Town Alexandria’s newest paper goods and gifts store, will hold its grand opening Friday, October 20th through Sunday, October 22nd.
Launched by Amy Rutherford, who also owns and operates Red Barn Mercantile, Penny Post reflects the same taste and quirky style that Alexandria-area shoppers have come to know and love. In addition to handmade greeting cards that are both artful and witty, the store offers notebooks, gifts, wrapping paper, balloons and top-quality pens and pencils for hobbyists and aficionados. The store will also offer custom personal and business stationery, from holiday cards to invitations and more.
During the grand opening, Penny Post will offer a 20 percent discount on all custom holiday cards, a calligraphy demonstration by Meant to Be Calligraphy, and giveaways.
