Canada, Ontario, Toronto meet up - July 5 2014


Hello!

It's been awhile since I organised a meet up but I've got help from fellow forum member grayciee this time around. :D

Date: July 5 2014
Where: Downtown Toronto, meet up at the AGO gift shop - 317 Dundas St W. (so you can shop around for art cards while waiting)
Time: 1 pm
What: A postcard shopping trip along Chinatown and nearby places then coffee or similiar after to sign cards. Please bring addresses, stamps, postcards (optional if you plan on buying cards), pens or stamps and of course yourselves! :)

I've booked a table at Pizzeria Via Mercanti (188 Augusta Ave) @ 4:30 for sitting/signing cards/early dinner (or whatever you want to call it. IF you want to come join us there but can't make it to the earlier meetup time, please send me a u2u as I need to fully confirm the table/reservation and number of seats by the 28th of June.

Who's coming/interested:

1. renegade_Cavalcade
2. grayciee
3. rosiews
4 & 5. Beii + friend
6. willyly
7. purple_madness (??)
8. EmiliaLoves2Travel
9. Susu29
10. Lisarr
11. knitter007ca
12. LyndaC
13. Unicorn11
14. stinkypaw
15. textura168

I'm making it official, July 5 is our meet up date. Hopefully you all can come....feel free to invite other Postcrossers! :)

Oh...and if anyone is savvy with designing a meet up card feel free to share ideas. Let's see if there's enough interest to order cards too. :)

Hi everyone!
I'm new to Postcrossing (it's going to be two months in a couple days!) and I think it will be interesting to meet some of you fellow Torontonians, so count me in for the meet! I also think that we should create a postcard together,it would be really cool.
I take it some of you have met before? Was it through meets or personal life?

Take care, guys!

Welcome! :) Looking forward to meeting you (and everyone else!). Actually surprised at how many more people are showing interest in meeting up now. :bouncing:

Meetup card design - I love everyone's ideas so far :D definitely looking forward to the final product! :)

I was thinking maybe we could have a collection of Canadian stamps - the good looking ones of course ;)
It's only because there are a ton of people who collect stamps and love seeing old/newly issued stamps. This is an example from the NL http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/NL-2316115

We could have "postcrossing toronto meet-up" etc scribbled in the middle or something.

ORRRRR, it could be a giant stamp with a photo of the CN tower with maple leaves (like what willyly mentioned). This is an example from NJ: https://www.flickr.com/photos/beiibeii/10932362215/in/set-7215763781...
So it can be like a PHQ card :P

These are just ideas though. :D :D It can be whatever, I'm sure it will be awesome :love:

Hmm what would be a good time? I'm thinking after lunch..? Around 1? Or would it be better to meet earlier? Added a definite meetup place (see above). :)

Also, feel free to invite other non-forum Postcrossers! The more the merrier :D

I'm on the west coast, and won't be able to make it. However, I ask that you do design a card! It's so interesting to get the frequent ones from Germany, and it would be nice if we (as representing our country) could do the same. It doesn't even have to be an actual card, but even where you all stamp 50 cards and hold them as prizes, etc. I think it would be really neat to have one that is from Canada :)

Is there any update on the meetup card? Should we try to find someone else to design?
