About Dario...

PLEASE write your **CITY** and DATE on your card

Hello,

I'm from Italy, but I've been living in the US since 2006, and I just opened a small shop on Etsy: scriptoriaregalia.etsy.com. I ♥ reading, writing, beautiful penmanship, thoughtful details, and exchanging meaningful notes.

What you write on the postcard is very important to me. Please share a quote/poem you love, a meaningful life story, or anything else that will make the postcard a treasure when I find it again tucked in a book or somewhere else in the years to come.
