What others are saying about Things Very Special

"My partner and I had the most awesome experience at Things Very Special today! We bought some very beautiful stationary for our business and I was able to get the most perfect thank you card for someone very special. The customer service was above and beyond! Thank you so much! I'm SO glad we crossed the ditch to come visit!" - Facebook Review

"I love the selection of gifts this store offers. Walking in, I thought they were a new store, but discovered they have been around since the 70's. The owner really focuses on local handmade items. He supports the art community of Jacksonville. The store is stocked full of invitations and gifts. Greeting cards made in Jacksonville. I love the service. Highly recommended" - Google Review

I can’t say enough about how nice and patient Noel at Things Very Special was! He listened to what I was looking for and enhanced the idea I had in my mind making the whole process a breeze and keeping it well within budget. I’m so happy I didn’t try to design and order invitations online. He was personable and so helpful. I highly recommend going to see Noel for a pleasant stress free experience! - Google Review
