There are usually two major projects during the holidays. The first is putting up the decorations. The second is the Christmas cards.
ALI Blogger Marta says ‘I’m the person who is single-handedly rescuing the post office. I mail about 100 Christmas cards. I’m still putting a holiday letter in each one, although the writeup gets shorter every year (the adults in the family aren’t doing anything new, and the kids have already posted everything on Facebook). But I love Christmas cards! In an era when we hardly receive actual mail any more, it’s wonderful to open the cards and re-connect with our relatives and friends once a year. As creative as electronic cards can be, there’s something special and personal about the old-fashioned paper card.’
The thrift store has a wonderful assortment of boxed Christmas cards at unbelievable prices. We also have some absolutely amazing hand-made cards on the single-card rack. These beautiful, unique cards are produced by some of our members, who donate them to be sold at the shop. You may not need to send 100 cards, but chances are you’ll need one or two, so check these out.
And while you’re looking at our cards, drop by our stationery section – you may need something for those thank-you notes after you open your presents!
