Nice size

The basket is well made and is the perfect size to display veggies from my garden or serve bread out of. I would definitely recommend the product and the merchant. Shipping was quick and it all arrived as described.

Better than expected

I expected to receive well-made baskets so it's not that I had low expectations, but when baskets arrived they were better than I had thought they would be. They are well made and an excellent size.

Unique Ostrich Egg Holder

The holder itself is very attractive and very sturdy. But the way the ostriches stand up around the circle base made it too small to hold my ostrich egg.

Ostrich Egg Lamp

Bought this product and it’s beautiful. It came in a very well packed box which was important as it needed to come in one piece to Australia. Delivery time was really excellent. Definitely recommend anyone in purchasing from this organisation.

Love my Namji❣️

I recently took a DNA test from The African Ancestry company and found out that my mother’s side is from Cameroon. I bought my sister this Namji Fertility doll from Cameroon for Christmas. It’s beautiful. The doll came very quickly and was packaged well. The doll is well made and sturdy. The doll is priceless to our family. I just wish that there would have been a picture of the artisan and some information about the person that made the doll inside the box.

Beaded elephant

I was very pleased with my beaded elephant sculpture. I had seen them while in South Africa while I was there but didn’t have room to pack it. Very happy to have found a website where I could purchase one. It’s just what I wanted.

The Gorgeous Decoupage Ostrich Egg Has Arrived!

It is breathtaking, made so well and perfectly, that normally I would not have been able to afford such a beautiful gift for my beloved daughter. But, along with the superior talent of the individual who crafted this item, the price was extremely affordable and well worth the expense. Plus, I also purchase the African, giraffe, which goes so well with it. She has not seen it yet, I have placed it where it will be a great surprise, in her sitting room shelf. Thank you very, very much. I will be sure to purchase from your site again. Have a great life.

Great hand crafted product

As expected and surprisingly fast shipping from S Africa. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail. Product differed slightly from photos (I think that was mentioned in the description). For example, large green marbles are the eyes and the expression is different than photo. All in all great product, thanks!

Satisfied Customer

I purchased Hippo pewter tablecloth weights. I have had others in the past that I keep in my picnic basket. I have been frustrated as they never seem heavy enough when there is any appreciable wind. These Hippo weights are fantastic. The Heaviest I have ever had and they look fabulous as well. I like the way they are constructed, the way they function and how they look. My husband liked them so much he wants me to buy another set. Thanks for such a great product.
