I’m bringing you all things Southern from the National Stationery Show in NYC this week! Reporting to you live from the Big Apple, these are my favorite Southern finds and stationery designers. What better way to support our Southern community than with the likes of paper luxuries.

Here’s a quick highlight of my fabulous finds:
