This shopping experience was amazing. It was my 15th wedding annIversary and I was traveling abroad with a 12 hour different time zone while trying to organize a multi-present delivery that would arrive wrapped and ready to present and she nailed it.
She found specific wrapping paper as requested and wrapped my present with just enough uniqueness that it showed the present was from me. And the watch was exactly as described; an elegant, unique watch in great condition. She loved it! I will look forward to other unique items from this shop.
