First Friday with Kindred Post

Juneau's First Friday in December is kind of a big deal.  Not only is it the biggest and most attended of all the First Friday Gallery Walks, but it's a time to stroll downtown with thousands of other Juneauites, reveling in the colorful storefronts, yummy treats, and festive cheer.

A new kid of the block is Kindred Post - a little spot that's quite possibly becoming one of my favorite places in Juneau.  Fellow blogger Emily in Alaska recently termed Kindred Post the Best Post Office Ever, and I'd have to agree.

A Smörgåsbord of goodies. 

Kindred Post proprietor Christy Namee Eriksen debuted the latest installment of Growing Upwords prints. This deeper-than-deep quote is from her five year old son.  Nothing like a stark reminder from a kiddo about the needlessness of worrying.

Eye candy, ear candy.

Decadent concoctions from Sentinel Coffee.

For someone who's obsessed with coy and cunning stationary, it was all I could do to not walk away with a fleet of these cards.

Time for a selfie with Conor/Grumpy Cat and Christy. These two, some of the BEST conversationalists I've ever met.

Way to go, Christy, on an amazing community space, full of fun finds, terrific conversations, and the celebration of all things LOCAL.
