Mark Your Calendar: July Events at the Curiosity Shoppe

Yet another reason to haul my butt across the Bay Bridge this weekend: The opening of The Ocean Reminds Me of Your Green Room, a new show by local painter Katie Vida at Valencia Street's Curiosity Shoppe. The reception runs from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 12, and the show will be up through August 5.

A quick look at some of Vida's previous work:

We Dance

Shannon Shaman

Horses Covered in Equations

Approaching Mountain

If Not, Winter

And on Saturday, July 19, from 2 to 6 p.m., Lea Redmond of Oakland's Leaf Cutter Designs will be in the Shoppe with her World's Smallest Postal Service.

For just $3 (three bucks!), Redmond will "transcribe a letter onto a teeny tiny piece of paper, put it in a teeny tiny envelope (packaged with a magnifying glass, of course), and send it to anyone you choose." I am totally going to stock up on our next round of tooth-fairy letters. (Shhh -- don't tell the kids!)

The Curiosity Shoppe is located at 855 Valencia Street in San Francisco. (Not in the area? Check out the store's online offerings.)

Oh Leah! The mini postal service is just so quaint!
