New York City

On June 7, 2008, our company will be participating in the 29th annual New York Mississippi Picnic in Central Park. This event is held each year in the East Meadow of Manhattan's Central Park . Begun in 1979, the event reunites native Mississippians living in New York and current residents of the Magnolia State. The event also educates people about the many wonderful assets of both areas. So, if you live in New York city or the surrounding area, stop by the park at 5th Avenue and 97th Street between the hours of 12-6 p.m. We will have a sampling of artwork and pottery and other Mississippi goodies. See ya'll there!

The article reads :..."a few doors down at the Mississippi Gift Company, I consider buying a Delta Delicacy caramel cake, made by local schoolteachers Adrian Tribble and Gwen Toomey, but opt for the Classic Cheese straws and a jar of Sussie's Pecan Pepper Jelly". Pick up a copy of this magazine today to read more about our store and the Mississippi Delta!
