Since opening my Etsy Shop I have been building relationships with my local Post Office staff. In the beginning I was so nervous - I didn't have a clue of which documents to fill in, how to calculate international shipping costs, etc. The kind people behind the counter were very helpful and patiently answered all my questions and we are now well acquianted.
There were only 2 other people in the Post Office queue this morning. That's when I decided to take a picture of my weekly parcel art works. When I asked the staff member if I could do so, she looked at me in surprise (and so did the other 2 people in the queue!). But then she remembered - this is the eccentric pottery lady, the one who plays with mud and make ceramic beads, the one who often has clay streaks on her face and in her hair.... She smiled and helped me to arrange the colourful parcels on the counter so that I can take a good picture. Thank you Wellington Post Office staff - I appreciate you!
