Enter the Bizarre (Part 3): Small, Sealed Delivered, It's Yours

Itsy bitsy, teeny weeny correspondence is on the scene(y). Lea Redmond, Postmaster of the World's Smallest Postal Service, set up her miniature desk at the Bazaar Bizarre last weekend to tempt young and old with her array of thimble-sized stationery.

Lea transcribes your message in the tiniest of script on a 1 x 1.5-inch piece of paper and seals it with a miniscule wax seal with your initial pressed into it. For delivery, your miniature missive is paired with a magnifying glass, placed in a glassine envelope and finished off with a large wax seal that reads "The World's Smallest Letter." This tidy bundle is then put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.

Letters can be ordered online at, hosted by Leafcutters Designs, and are made and shipped within 4 business days ($8, plus shipping). Craft a keepsake note for a dear friend, a thoughtful thank you, or think even bigger! Lea has drafted twee wedding announcements, bitsy baby shower invitations and more. Let the invite inspire your theme—serve up bite-sized portions and miniature cupcakes at the event!
