A Literary Postbox for Any Occasion

Surprise your loved one (or treat yourself) to one of our special literary postboxes for any occasion. These boxes make a magical gift for those who love great books, independent publishers, and quality treats from local makers. We tailor every box for the recipient.

Every box includes the following:

  • A $50 gift card to Upstart & Crow
  • A curated book selection based on your recipient’s tastes
  • Beautiful body products, such as soaps and salves
  • Sumptuous chocolates and other comestibles
  • Other literary surprises based on tastes and desires

Each recipient receives their own postbox number and corresponding secret code, which is required to open their box. They are then invited to our studio on Granville Island to find their special box amidst our bank of rescued, 20th-century apartment mailboxes.

Further details about how it works:

Choose from 2 price points: $150 or $250 (on the next page). Once you’ve purchased a box, we’ll ask you for some basic information about the recipient. We’ll provide an electronic card you can give to your recipient announcing the gift that explains how and when their box can be opened. We will notify you when the postbox is ready.

We can’t wait to surprise your recipient! Thank you, as always, for choosing to support locally. Your purchase helps us to continue our literary programming and community initiatives.
