I am writing because I hope one of you will be so kind as to help me with a rather unusual request.
I live in Brooklyn, NY and I will be moving to an apartment on the beach. This may sound strange but I have a decorating idea - I want to put up a shelf w/ a small jar of sand from every beach I have visited.
I LOVED the unique color sand when we went house boating on Lake Powell���however, I forgot to bring back sand!
I wonder if one of you would be so kind as to send me about a cup of that beautiful sand. You can send it in a small plastic bag. Or if it would be easier on you, I can send you a bag or a small plastic tupperware to put it in and you can send it back for me. I will pay for the shipping costs.
I know this sounds like a very strange request, but I want to have a bit of Lake Powell in my home and remember the beautiful beaches until I return again.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be glad to send you something from NYC in return...
