Working on L. Perkin is my full time job, so you can expect quick answers to any messages you send and fast shipping! I want your shopping experience to be as simple as running by the store to pick up a birthday gift, only better, because you don't have to leave your house.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you feel right at home here.
