Full Disclosure: I love words and text and everything else that has to do with our written language. So, when I first walked into The Regional Assembly of Text in 2006, I fell in love with this place immediately, and I've been returning regularly ever since. At our home we always have a pack of their beautiful cards ready to be transcribed for an occasion and for those special gifts, I go to the store and create my very own personalized cards. And if your gifts are small, I highly recommend their beautifully screened cardboard gift boxes. I also get to gaze nostalgically at their great collection of old-school typewriters (you can use them too!) and filling cabinets, but that's my thing. They even host a letter writing club that meets the first Thursday of every month.
The Regional Assembly of Text is another great reason to support local businesses that add something special to our city's retail landscape. They also happen to elevate the written word to the noble place it belongs, but again, that's just my thing.
