Clogging mailboxes.

From everywhere.

For everything.


Pick me, pick me.

Buy, buy, buy.

Free shipping.

Buy one, get one free.

Everything 50% off.

And so and so on.

Some are non-profit.


Southwest Indian Foundation.


Others support a cause.


Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Arbor Foundation.

The majority are commercial.

For profit.

Free enterprise knows no bounds.

Selling their wares through the mail.

Or shop online.

Experience infinity.

Like Facebook, there is no end.

We can buy anything from anywhere.

A horse, a pie, an island.

Shoes, books, art supplies.

Cooking utensils, carpentry tools.


A dog, a bird, a miniature donkey.

Fish, wine, a kit to brew beer.

Around-the-world cruise.

A CD of Blues.

Pajamas and candy.

Cars and TVs.

Original art.

Antique furniture.

Honey and salsa.

Cuban cigars.

Or reel it in.

And shop local.

There’s plenty of choices.

And a range of prices.

Something for everyone.

Right under our noses.

Our red-nosed reindeer noses.

That’s Mason.

Renee Walker is a poet, writer, and real estate broker on the Square.
