What People Say ...

"The box looked like gorillas had used it as a kick ball, but of all those delicate items. only one hind foot of one crab came loose, and it will be trivial to glue back on.I couldn't believe that the 3 delicate items shown below came through absolutely intact. Really great job of packing.Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks to everyone there who so carefully gathered and so professionally packaged the items sent."
