Special Stamp for Valentine’s Day

Here’s an INNsider Tip from the William Miller House Bed and Breakfast lodging in Richmond!  

Did you know there is a Valentines, Virginia? And, yes, Postmaster Kathy Fajna, will hand-cancel your Valentines greetings with a postmark that says “Valentines, VA.” and hand-stamp each with her special red, heart-shaped seal.  Hurry and get your Valentine’s greeting cards to her by delivering them to her at the Post Office/General Store in Valentines.  Or, you may send her your addressed cards in a large envelope to


23 Manning Drive

Valentines, VA 23887

You may either put your postage on the greeting cards (Remember that square, oversized and envelopes with rigid objects require extra postage) or enclose a check for the proper postage for each card. You can find out all the particulars on postage at the United States Postal Service website!  All you need are the dimensions, the weight, and the zipcode.

INNsider Tip 2: Use one of Mike’s recipes from the our Historic Fan District Bed and Breakfast recipe page to surprise your special someone with breakfast in bed. From muffins to pancakes to all sorts of egg dishes, there’s plenty to choose.  Serve your special breakfast on a tray, using your best china and flatware, cloth napkins, add piping hot coffee or tea, fresh squeezed orange juice ( add champagne for a mimosa), fresh fruit and a single red rose in a bud vase to show your appreciation , love, and affection.
