Words & Adventure

In the spring of 2015 a young man walked into our coffeehouse in Dayton, Ohio with a box of cards.  We flipped through his collection.  Simple.  Concise.  Imaginative.

We bought the box.

Clayton and Lucas, the founders of Little City Love, shared their passion for words with all of us by mailing over 100,000 cards to people in over 40 countries.  As customers, we fell in love with Little City Love’s simple aesthetic, profound wisdom, and authentic kindness. Clayton and Lucas ignited meaningful dialogue in our local communities and around the world.  Words unite, enthuse and encourage.

We are grateful to Clayton for entrusting our Dayton-based creative team with this exciting opportunity to continue the journey.  We are committed to the existing curated collections and are busy designing fresh new cards and poster prints. 

Little City Love continues to believe that meaningful connections with others are the heart of a mindful and fulfilling life.

With much gratitude, we thank those who have collaborated in the formation of Little City Love through your words, images and support.  Continue to include us in your journey & we will do the same.  #Exploringwithwords
