I would just like to thank you for your wonderful service with this recent order. I wanted to let you know that the goods arrived safely and that the recipients were absolutely delighted. You might not think that this is a very big thing until you see that the order was sent to Christchurch, New Zealand! I felt certain that this would be lost for ever after recent events but somehow it was delivered and was a welcome touch of comfort to them in the midst of so much devastation. Thank you again.

I just want to say a massive thank you to you! I put a family memory on your site around last Christmas and I was contacted by my 3rd cousin in Canada,who had mountains of family photos and info. We are now sharing photos and discs, and email regularly.
Thanks again. Donna. I will be purchasing something from the site sometime soon!

Hello, just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed seeing the old photographs of Aberystwyth. My grand mother lived quite a lot of her youth there, and I was pleased to be able to see the town as she must have seen it. She married and with her family moved to Australia, so her descendants are all Australian. She was very well loved, and it's nice to make this connection with her youth. Thanks.
