Testimonials

 Hi David, yes, it finally arrived arrived and I can see how it took you 3 hours to prepare the sign. You should get a trophy for the packing job you did. The thermometer looks great, I can't wait to get it up on the wall, thanks for all your efforts to send me the sign, I hope you can find me another porcelain sign real soon. I look forward to doing business with you again, thanks for such amazing service, take care.    Kirk Lahey
 Hi David
They [cannons] have arrived and are great thank you very much. As you may have guessed I think the larger one is great so I would defiantly like one to match if you come across one on your travels. Thank you for all your help in sourcing and shipping them for me. I have to say it has been a pleasure dealing with you and your company.
