- “I can’t say enough about how pleased I was with my order. The preview online hardly did it justice. My girlfriend is in Chicago & I’m not, so I was concerned about the quality & delivery — neither of which was an issue in the least. Delivered on time & in perfect shape. And, as if it weren’t enough, Mr. Horsch threw in 2 of his calendars just as a thank you! Customer service can’t be any better than that! I’ll be going back for sure!” – Colin F.
