|Answer: Whatever you can make it.|
|The stamp table -- both the rubber and postage type.|

|This soon became a huge, awesome disaster area.|
|Crayons, markers, pencils, and more cancelled stamps.|

An especial thanks to Erin of the NPM, whose hard work made this awesomeness happen. She's super-supportive of the letter-writing and mail art communities, and her backing of this project is what made it so successful.
Were you able to come make mail with us? What did you think of the afternoon?
P.S. Did you know about the #showandmail topic on Twitter that @postalmuseum popularized? It's a great source of letter-writing inspiration.
