Perfect post-holiday thank you cards made by Mississippians
The holidays are over and chances are you’ve still got plenty of thank-you notes to write to friends, family and coworkers. It might seem easier to crank out a few Facebook messages or emails (seriously, don’t do this), but a personal handwritten thank-you note is actually a pretty quick and easy way to show how you feel about another person’s effort and thoughtfulness.
Several Mississippi artists use Etsy and other sites to sell their own originally designed paper goods, thank-you notes included. We gathered a list of some of our favorites with links to each store and information on how to shop local while showing thanks.
