I cannot tell you how happy this has made me! I had this perfume when it was out originally and then moved away from London and couldn't get it where I then lived. I then forgot what it was called - even though I had the jewellery box that came with it as a gift box, it didn't have the name of the perfume on it.

A couple of weekends ago I went up into my attic and had a sort out and found a make up bag which matched the jewellery box and lo and behold a little tab inside showed the name of the perfume. I didn't think I'd find it on-line but searched anyway and found your site.

When it arrived I thought - it won't be like I remember it, but it was! Extraordinary how the smell took me back to one of the happiest times of my life. I was telling everyone on my Facebook page and mentioned your site so now they're all searching for their old favourites too!

Some with greater success than others but thank so much for sourcing all our old memories!

Carol, N.Y.C., U.S.A. 

Hi, I wanted to thank you for the Avon Magnum talc.

It arrived quickly and very well packaged. That's a hard one to find in the U.S. - I think it was only sold in Europe. I was living in Germany in the '80s and that's where I remember it from. The fragrance immediately brought back good memories.

Thanks again, Gary of U.S.A.

I am pleased to report the juicer arrived just now, DHL did their stuff very well, even though their tracking site never updated. they found the house, no problems.

The juicer is great, I have one already that was my mum's, and this one is in much better condition. And your packing skills put Amazon to shame! Really great service all round, thanks very much.

Best Wishes Peta of Portugal

Good evening - What a beautiful surprise! I got my SOLIDEX MILK SAVER today, Tuesday the 2nd June 2009.  It arrived safely. It was well packed, I thank you SO MUCH! When I broke my MILK SAVER I was so worried that I could never get another one, because I had it for such a long time, that is when I went to the Internet and saw your site. I was so happy when I got it! 

Sonia of Southern Ireland

Many thanks for the prompt delivery, and for taking the trouble to wrap the spray so carefully.I have been wearing this, my favourite, fragrance since the early 1980's, and people I meet often tell me I smell nice. So I'm always relieved to get my hands on another bottle, as I'm a bit worried that if I stop wearing it, they might tell me I smell nasty!!! Thanks again.

Fragrant of Dorset

I have just opened the beautifully wrapped parcel with my purchases. Many thanks for the speedy delivery. We will keep an eye on your website and thanks for the informative email.
