"This is a re-order!"

That oughta tell you how much I liked this box! Mr. Sanchez is a gifted artiste. Other sellers are also gifted, but what I really like about Mr. Sanchez is that he doesnt charge as much as he could; his products are that good. The workmanship is outstanding, and these jewelry boxes are bigger than most others. Theres nothing wrong with the other boxes here, but la Jefa (my wife) likes the extra space. (Happy wife happy life — gnome sane?) This is the 4th box Ive ordered from Mr. Sanchez, and Im happy with every one of them. They make great gifts that look more expensive than they are. And now theyre as cheap as a tank of gas. Theyre even less if you drive an RV — and one of these babies will last you a LOT longer than that fill up! So, what are you waiting for? Treat someone... or even yourself!

"The most beautiful box ever!"

I had been eyeing this box for a couple of years but I was hesitant because it was as overseas and I was worried about the shipping! But it got here super quick and my box is just stunning, I love it! Thank you
