We needed a special place to share very special stories we've received from customers that exceed mere feedback. It is a pleasure to be able to make available older vintage pieces that you can't find in any stores. Over the years we've received wonderful testimonies and heartwarming stories about how a family heirloom was preserved.
Thanks for filling our order so quickly.
Here is where we will start keeping them to share with others.
I want to tell you how I came to order from your website...
When my wife and I moved into our house years ago, one of the glass globes on the dining room chandelier was cracked. Over the years it eventually broke and had to be discarded. Being unable to find a suitable replacement, we have lived with it as-is for several years now while we looked for suitable replacements.
I found myself wasting time in a home improvement store last week, and I saw several new fixtures on a close-out sale. I took pictures of them and showed them to my wife. One was really inexpensive, but it would have required special light bulbs to work with our dimmer. Another one was nice, but it didn't really match the rest of our hardware and it had no globes at all, so I suggested we just remove the remaining globes from our existing fixture and leave it at that. My wife emphatically said, "no!"
I spent hours searching online for a suitable globe to work with our fixture and I came up empty handed. There were several that would fit, but they were either way too plain compared to what we had, or they were far too expensive.
Last Thursday afternoon, my wife came home from work and I told her my findings or the lack thereof. She wanted to see firsthand what I had found, so I went back to Google. I don't remember exactly what I typed differently that time, but I ended up on your web page www.momspenniesfromheaven.com where I scrolled down a bit to find what appeared to be a perfect match for our broken glass globe, chimney, hurricane, whatever. I showed my wife, and she said, "I thought you said you couldn't find it anywhere?"
I double-checked all of the measurements and compared the online photo to the real thing to make sure the pattern was indeed correct. It seemed to match perfectly. There were only two left. My wife told me to order both, just in case one got damaged in shipping and so we could keep one as a spare.
Well, the box was on our porch yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon. Fulfillment in mere days after spending so many years searching.
I had a chance to put them up today. The floral design on the ones you sent is slightly yellowed as compared to our original white pattern. Otherwise, they are just perfect.
I put up the two I ordered from you and I'm saving one of our originals, which has a somewhat odd shape compared to the rest, as a spare. I've attached a photo of our fixture with its mix of original and replacement globes.
