I teach Spanish and am a Spanish Club Advisor and I bought multiple sets of these as prizes and gifts. The sets are lovely,brightly colored, and well made and were well received. My students love them.
Beautiful addition to my kitchen counter
I m happy I bought this drip coffee maker. The wood is beautiful and is sturdy, not even slightly damaged by hot water. And my coffee comes out perfect every time — it s easy to see as it drips if I need to add more or less coffee.
These little dolls are adorable. They would make a great stocking stuffer or small gift for any holiday.
