Quirky Penpal Ad

Would you like to have (more) penpals? You’ve come to the right place!

To have your ad published on the blog, just grab a sheet of paper (or two, or three),

handwrite or type it and mail it to:

We would love to know what makes you unique,

so please enclose your list of top 10 quirks!

For an example, see our own top 10 lists here.


Feel free to include as many pages as you wish, but please know

that ads written on A5 paper (1/2 page) are easier to read on the screen.


Also, please remember to write your postal address or email address

  so that interested folks can easily get in touch with you!

Don’t worry, your return address on the envelope will be blurred when published,

unless you decide to share it yourself in your penpal ad.


Thank you and hooray for quirky penpals!



My name is Julie and I'm 37.
I'm French Canadian and fell
in love with an American,
so I'm now living in Vermont
with my wife.

I write letters, I love stationery and I have a handwriting fetish. I often eat sushi, still feel like I'm 16 and only wear skirts & dresses (with colorful tights when it's cold).

I'm happier with a mind full of ideas, a mailbox full of letters from my penpals, a shop full of stationery, a house full of pens and a day full of hugs.

Read my Top 10 Quirks here.

This is me with my wife,
Denise. We met through the
League of Extraordinary
Penpals and are living
happily ever after in the
Stationery Kingdom.

Denise blogs here too and is
the one in charge of the
social media: Facebook,
Twitter and Pinterest.

She's 40 years old,
from South Dakota,
and in love with me, washi
tape & imperial rolls.
