And the shoes... had a Cinderella moment, you know when you slip it on and wonder whether it will fit? Perfect fit !!!! I'm absolutely delighted with these purchases. The shoes are a work of art, really almost a shame to wear them, but wear them I will :o) Thank you very much, I'll be back." ~~Nicole

** "Just wanted to let you know that the bracelet arrived. It is very pretty. I appreciate your accuracy in describing measurements and condition. It is so reassuring to actually get what you are expecting rather than receiving something with all of these "little things" that the seller fails to mention and then disclaims that they are not experts in describing, etc. Anyway, enough ranting about the past. Thanks for your accuracy and honesty." ~~Emily
