  • Items arrived well protected and in good order. Evident requirement of a signature was a GOOD THING; a great improvement over the many packages that get dumped in the entryway of my apartment building

    A crack in wood was mentioned in the description, but it was not photographed (or shown).

    The seller agreed he better should have added one more photo, showing also that view of the object.
