Holiday shop success story # 1

“We used them last year for Mary Esther Elementary holiday shop 2018 and they were amazing. The kids were able to afford more and liked the products that were available below $5.00. We had nothing over $11.00. They have always had friendly customer service and their shipping was the best I have ever experienced. We would order in the afternoon and have the new products by morning, and we are in Florida. I would highly recommend trying them out. We are using them again for 2019.” — Denise Write

“We were looking for more of a pop-up type holiday shop for our one night PTA event. Unfortunately they don’t offer that type, but Joe W was SO kind and gave me a link to a fellow business that does. I was so touched by his kindness and swift response. Very rare to find that in today’s world and we were so appreciative. We will definitely use them in the future if we decide to run a full holiday shop next year!” — Michele Horton
