Though I was delighted to save a lot of $$$ using a sale for decorative cardboard boxes/containers, the shipping experience was sooooo aggravating and one item came terribly damaged. I kept getting emails that items had arrived, but they hadn't. I had to look up tracking reports that said items had arrived (this was at my work address, so I had to get others involved in the search.) All's to say the tracking reports were wrong and items were delivered later. The order arrived in several shipments, and one even arrived at my home address, which I'd never given them. Though there were several shipments, I'd only placed one order. The damaged item was a round box that was supposed to have a pretty bow. The bow arrived undone (impossible to tie back the right "pretty" way, and one of the bow "tails" had been cut and taped together. Really!?! No integrity regarding quality! Can't believe they shipped it to me that way!) Will never order from them again. Not worth the aggravation. They're a great store, but don't buy online. BTW: This review is legit. They ask that I include email order confirmation, but 1) can't upload the email, and 2) the email contains personal information.

Tip for consumers:
Their products were good (except for one that came terribly damaged), but my experience with shipping was a nightmare. I rec'd several notices that said items were delivered when they weren't. The notices even came with false tracing records. This happened a few times. Confusing and frustrating and a time waster, trying to locate items
that company said had been delivered that hadn't been.

Products used:
Loved the giant sized decorative storage boxes. One small box came damaged.

Friend gave us hurricane candle holders, 6 in a pack, 11" tall. Also gave us 6 flameless candles from Amazon to put in them. I placed each hurricane over a candle after I found a place for each one in our home (hurricane had no bottom). The hurricanes were really too big and clunky, so I removed the candles, placed each one back in the individual box it came in, placed them all in the big mailing box, added the bubble wrap, and off I shipped it back at my own expense. I had already spoken with cust. Serv. And she said they could only refund my friend's payment method, no gift card. Talk about embarrassing, so I had to call my friend to let her know. As awkward as it was for both of us, she sent me a check for the amount of the gift (this was a gift she had collected money for from others who were in on the gift.) NOT end of story. My friend had to let me know she was refunded of the cost--more awkwardness, and when I called cust. Serv., the rep she said they came back used, smudged and not in original wrapping. I DIDN'T notice any smudges or problems with them when I repacked them, but I suppose it's possible the candles might have slightly rubbed against the glass on some of them, but come on! You can easily get that off in a snap. Items were secure and arrived intact back at the company. The cust. Serv rep I spoke to about the partial refund was useless. I would tell her I sent the items bk essentially unused and that I hadn't noticed any smudges and she would refute that and tell me her company policy. We kept going in circles. After I insisted on talking to her supervisor, she put me on hold for about 5 minutes and came back and told me her supervisor wasn't available and that I couldn't talk with this person. Then I told the cust. Serv rep my whole story about how this was a gift, the embarrassment, etc. etc. She had no response other than repeating that there was nothing she could do for me. This company has no heart, no soul, no integrity, just policy. Customer BEWARE!
