This is my third set of painted vintage metal spools, and they are superb! And, like before, shipping was prompt, and much like opening a Cracker Jacks box, I found a surprise in the package! Ania and Jacek are world-class Sellers to give such attention to something as seemingly small as a pair of vintage metal spools. But that's because they're lovely people, the essential component of any world-class Seller.

It's uncommon to find a Seller who is not only expert in the goods they offer, but delivers them with panache, courtesy, and that certain respect that only comes from a deep connection with such goods. Ania and Jacek are completely uncommon in this regard. My painted metal spools arrived quickly from overseas, and glow upon my gold and burgundy Erika 5 machines. More than that, they stayed in communication with me during the entire process; indeed, the little metal spools might have been a museum piece worth many thousands as they were treated with the same level of care.
