Recent Testimonies:


21 February 2012. I received a testimony email regarding a waistcoat sold many years ago.

"Dear Jackie,

A few years ago I purchased one of your gorgeous Dartmoor waistcoats from Brigid Foley in Tavistock. This e-mail is to tell you how much it is still loved and worn - it never grows old - it is still my favourite garment and completely unique. I was buying tops in there the other day and Brigid said she thought you might appreciate knowing by ongoing affection for this lovely piece of clothing. Once again many thanks. J."

"fantastic just what i wanted very quick easy transaction and will buy from again"

"Perfect hexies, carefully packed, fast shipment as usual!! A+++ :))"

""Really lovely book! So pleased! LOVE the fact that there is a Facebook Group and also videos on YouTube to accompany this book."

"Very impressed with all aspects of this sellers service. Prompt, good communication and the product was exactly as described. Will definitely use again."
