Thank-You Note Etty

Dear Queenie,

  I know you are supposed to always send a “thank you” when someone gives you a gift, but how do you thank someone for a gift that is obviously second-hand, or maybe something someone gave them that they didn’t want so they passed it along to you?—Thank-You Note Etty Ket


Dear Etty Ket,

  Just thank the person for thinking of you at whatever the occasion was, and do not say anything specific about the gift itself.
