Magnolia Tester Round-Up!

Hey everyone! I am so excited that it’s finally time for the tester roundup of the Magnolia Wallet and the Magnolia Mini!! The Magnolia Wallet feels appropriately named since it was such a group effort to get it to where it is today! The tester group did such an amazing job as always and I can’t wait for y’all to see all of the hard work that they did during testing!
