The arctic researchers will be sending greeting cards from the Arctic Circle and many more handmade and unique items.
With the limited resources on hand, the items will be really ingenious and will include hats, placemats and other items, straight from the far north! The items have a long way to cross before they reach your address: first, they are shipped in a chopper to Longyearbyen (closest town) to be flown to Poland with next post.
