Subject: Re. Lectern
You had arranged everything perfectly. I received a call on my mobile Wednesday evening, checking if I was home. Delivery followed within 1,5 to 2 hours (by a Polish truckdriver who only spoke Polish but he showed the delivery paper with the address of Church Antiques as well as my name & address and I showed him my ID so he knew he had the right person in front of him. He hauled it out of his truck, I signed off and then took it to my apartment where it now stands as an eyecatcher.
So far only my friend has seen it and she had the expected wow-reaction.
Here are 2 pics that will give you an idea of what triggered that wow.
Thanks again Jenny & kind regards

Subject: Re: Chairs here! And a pretty sight they are.
thank you soooooooooooo much for the lovely chairs. They just arrived, meticulously wrapped, fit to sail around Cape Hoorn. We feel they're even prettier than the first set we bought from you. You must have picked the best of the lot AND given them the once-over. Beautiful sheen on the wood, such fine grain. They will be sure to impress our guests. This flat is turning into a virtual CHURCH ANTIQUES showroom in the German capital. Any time you're in the city, do stop buy and see for yourself :-)
Thank you again and all the best,
P.S: I also liked the little stickers with my name on them, though the kids tore those off immediately.

Jenny, all safely delivered on Friday evening, thanks am very pleased. Have told friends about you.
The wall arrived last Sunday. We laid it out on the floor in the banquet hall Tuesday night. I got up in the balcony of the banquet hall and took a picture that I will send you by separate e-mail. It is truly magnificent. I am very pleased with it. The first customer that came in and saw it said that he wanted to buy it. He hasn't paid me yet and I hope that he doesn't, as I am not sure I can part with it.
Y'all keep up the good work and let me know if you find anything else like this. This is truly what I am after and I am sure that things like that are just lying all around in every building waiting on you to load it up and send it to me. Tell Steve and Jenny hello. I look to seeing you all soon.
Your humble servant and friend,
We just wanted to let you know that we are delighted with our table and chairs! They look perfect in our kitchen. Thank you so much for all your help. We'll definitely recommend you.

Personally, Denise, I'd get rid of Lucas if only so that he would take that whacking great ornamental wooden cross sitting in your window. I've seen church pews with less wood.

What a delightful, friendly driver you have! Goods collected!

Subject: Donation of a Wheelchair
Thank you so much for your donation of a wheelchair to my centre. Julian delivered it and I was thrilled. It is just what we needed, it folds so easily and is so compact.
Amazingly on its first day in the centre it was needed. An elderly lady had a fainting fit, was very shaky and could not walk to the "Community Transport" waiting to take her home. It was so great to be able to produce the chair and wheel her safely to the car.

The pew arrived yesterday, safe and sound, and I am thrilled! It is even better than I had imagined.(size was perfect)
The gentleman delivering the pew was as a delight. Telephoning the evening before and arriving exactly when he said he would, taking such care to ensure the pew was placed exactly where it should go with no damage! He was so interesting to chat to.
What a pleasure conducting "business" with both you and the delivery company and please pass on my thanks to everyone involved. It has been refreshing to find that there are still companies out there that do care about their standards, principals and understand what "customer care" truly is.
Many, many thanks, Margaret

A happy customer in Berlin!
Subject: They're here! They're here!
The chairs are here! And they're even lovelier than we remembered them. I'm sure you sent us the nicest ones you had left. In a minute we'll sit down on them and have our first breakfast on them. Dave had no problem finding us, and we agreed over tea that we'll spread the word and have him bring chairs to Berlin on a regular basis. Our friends and foes will pale with envy when they see our new chairs and will want to know where we got them and how we got them here. Anyway, we're very happy we insisted against all common sense that we need these chairs. After all, beauty is rarely about common sense, or is it?
Thank you again for everything.
My best, Georg
Recieved the pew last night, my wife thinks it's great, thanks.
Hi, I recently purchased an olympia pew from you.
I had to email to say thank you very much. The pew is lovely and fits in our hall so well. I have a friend who is busy making a lovely seat pad for it. The driver who delivered the pew was a lovely chap and most polite.
Thank you once again. I apologise for the delay in sending this email I have been unwell.

Subject: Harrogate Small Oak Communion Table
On tuesday last week I took delivery of the above. Even the delivery was memorable - arriving within minutes of the promised time, despite the weather. And, Yes, it was even better than I dared hope! On friday afternoon it was placed in position to the RHS of the Altar at St. Oswald's Church, Filey. It looked as if it had been purpose made - its own design is unique enough but the colour matches almost exactly the oak panelling that flanks the east end of the Chancel. All have praised it. It is a delight. It was so well received both I and my wife got a hug from the Vicar - a Lady I must add! Yesterday morning I attended Holy Communion. To see the table resplendent with the Brass Crucifix, the vessels of the Sacrement was someting else, but as I said earlier the Table looked as if it has been there forever!! To you, your staff, the delivery team I extend my personal thanks.
Thank You All, NORMAN
