What You Can Expect From annsliee

Expect hand crafted throw pillows by me; constructed with professional features such as hidden zippers and serged inside seams that prevent fraying; and designed with modern classic styles in mind. You can expect service and product to exceed your expectation. However, if you are not happy with your pillow or it doesn't fulfill your decor vision, you can return it (see Return Policies).
