    I always looked forward to my catalogue. You were like my book friend. I ordered many books over the years and always enjoyed them.
    I wish everyone the best in their new endeavours. You really were like “family”.
    Thank you, Darlene Vormittag.

    I am sorry to hear of this but understand.
    I have loved ordering so many books and other things over the years at such great prices.
    Good luck to you all.

    How very much you will be missed. You helped a very small market library in a very small town enlarge it’s catalog by offering so many wonderful things ( too numerous to mention!) at a price we could afford. Thanks you so much

    I have been ordering books, calendars, note cards, you name it from you for YEARS. My daughter grew up on many of your wonderful Children books. Thank you so much for the many years of providing my family entertainment and education. When I got your catalogue in the mail, everything was put aside until I was done going through it, and usually placing an order. I too have a sad heart to say Good Bye to your visits to my home. Best of Luck to All Of You.
