re: 1953 red leather wallet
One of the most satisfying purchases I have made recently. ( Just
as though I had designed it myself - almost ! )
Thank you for great service, too !
Hello Rosanne Sorry I am a bit late, but wanted to say thanks a million for the really beautiful Purse and for the thoughtful way you packaged it with the penny and the cards. I am thrilled with the items and am so proud now of having the little Italian beaded purse which I will carefully use, and no doubt be the envy of many. Wish you a very happy New Year and a wonderful 2014.
And, thank you so much for your incredible customer service, personal kindness and amazing inventory! You are the best! As ever, Jill
