Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 89: Downtown Mail & Shipping

Downtown Mail & Shipping is located on L Street between 10th & 11th, right across from the State Capital, so it's very convenient to access when doing some errands during the work day.  It's become my go-to place to buy stamps, send packages, and find unique greeting cards.  And Mr. E has even patronized the business from time to time for similar purchases.

Ever since the downtown Central Post Office location moved farther west into part of the Westfield Mall complex, it's been much easier to stick with Downtown Mail for the majority of our postage and shipping needs, not to mention that the service is much better that we had experienced at the USPS!  Yep, the stereotypes about postal employees were unfortunately not proven wrong at either the downtown post office or the Alhambra locations.

And if we every have larger packages to mail that require transportation by car, we simply head to the UPS Store that's co-located in the R Street Market complex around the corner from our local Safeway.

So great to live "on the grid" and have easy access to nearby services and local businesses!
