Hey Mrs. Rita

Thanks so much for the beautiful hats. Me and my siblings purchased them for her Birthday(s) and she loved them. Thanks for the great finds, I am sure it took a lot to find those beautiful works of art. I can't wait to be able to buy more.
 
Thanks again the process was easy and I got them a day earlier than what I expected.

Thank you Rita, I'm glad I found your site and was able to purchase this beautiful piece. I trust that you have received the appropriate funds including that for shipping, as I was unsure as to how the shipping costs were to be applied so just included the relevant price onto the purchase order. I look forward to receiving it through the post and hope that it is appreciated by the person it's intended for!

Wow, Rita  -- I received the package on Saturday and was so surprised/delighted with the hand-made earrings that you sent!  Thank you so much.  (Do you sell these items on your website?  I'm wearing the earrings at work today and several people have asked where I got them!).  :)

Hi Rita:

I received the Goldette Crystal Necklace.  Although it does have a scratch in the large crystal, I still love it.  It’s quite beautiful, so I plan to keep it.  If you haven’t already cashed my check, go ahead.  And if you can send me a check for the $16.50 reduction in price due to damage, that’s fine.  I will keep reviewing your website to see what else tickles my fancy.  I love your merchandise and plan to place more orders.  Thanks again for you good intentions and professionalism.  They’re greatly appreciated. 

Best Regards,

Hi Rita - I meant to e-mail you earlier to let you know that the jewelry arrived yesterday.  I am very pleased with it.  It is even prettier "in person".  I am very happy that I found your on-line store.  Thank you,  Janet Whitley


Thanks so much Rita! I can’t wait – both items are gorgeous

Hello Rita,

I received the lovely rhinestone and lucite dangle earrings yesterday, and
although they
are very pretty, i am afraid that they are a bit too much bling for my
wedding dress. I
tried them on with the dress, and they look too heavy for me. I am impressed
with your
quality of merchandise, and will look again, and have already recommended
your website to
other women. I also appreciate your very fast shipment. It took only about 2
days. I will
mail back tomorrow for refund.

                                       Thanks again,
                                       Camille Troy


Excellent!
Will make your link one of "my favorites".
I cannot wait to see it!

Thank YOU!

Hi Rita,
I receive my beautiful ring a few days ago, and it looks great!  Thank you so very much for the earrings!!!! wow I was so excited, and that was so sweet of you.  I love them, they are really fun and sparkle, and jingle when I walk.  I love vintage jewelry, when my husband and I got married, (well first we looked -- get that we part-- looked for an engagement ring, and it was it was a beautiful smallish diamond with two smaller diamond stones that were sent inside two small, what look like a rose buds. 
I wore my grand mothers dress, my necklace was vintage crystals, and Matt wore all vintage clothing as well, it was so much fun, we really looked like we walked out of the 1920's -- and we couldn't beat the prices for gold bands as well.
I have a real affinity for vintage jewelry, I just feel like some pieces call to me, and when I get them I feel at home with them.  Do you know what I mean?  Anyway, you are such a dear to send me the earrings I really appreciate your thoughtfulness, and for doing such a great job at repairing the ring.   I'll keep my eye on your web site, you have so many awesome pieces, really great prices too.

                                                                                     Take care,             Sarah Swift

 
Thank you Rita.  The earrings are beautiful, I cannot wait to get them

Hi Rita,
 
  Thank you SO much, I really appreciate it. It is a BEAUTIFUL necklace, I can't wait to get it! 

Will let you know when I get it and that everything came okay,
 
Loreen Dall

Hi Rita-
Thank you so much for the savings on the earrings and for informing me about it.
I assume you have already sent the earrings out so I guess I'll skip the insurance and hope for the best.
I plan on wearing these to my son's wedding in April. They look absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you again.
