About Crooked Letter

We exist to put Mississippi's best on display.
At Crooked Letter, we believe in our state and its ability to produce some of the country's most creative artisans. That's why everything we offer in our store was built, carved, forged, designed, cooked, painted, stitched, or written by a resident Mississippian. You'll find a little bit of everything in our store, but our one underlying feature shared across every one of our vendors is our deepening Mississippi roots. 
Founded in 2017 by Debbie Mathis, a lifelong Mississippian, Crooked Letter has made its home in the heart of Downtown Meridian, a growing nexus of historic railways, musical culture, and food to die for. We think we fit in quite nicely. More recently, as Debbie pivots to new ventures, she leaves the business in the hands of her son and "daughter-in-love," Noah and Kylie. Crooked Letter has a bright future ahead, and we are on a mission to make our makers known beyond our borders. We would love the chance to show you what quality goods Mississippi has to offer. Shop around this site or reach out to us – we'd be glad to help however we can!
