Marybelle (Iowa) George, you have started a passion in me for fairy houses and miniature gardens that maybe hard to stop! You outdid yourself and this beautiful house was so worth the wait. I LOVE the exterior lighting and the picture of Rory over the fireplace. And did you look up that eastern goldfinches were the state bird of Iowa? I'm betting you did! I am a very outdoor and nature oriented person so the acorn theme and the bird feeder are perfect. the butterfly headboard and rocking chair - I might have to order one of each for Rory's house cuz she's going to be envious of those.
John K. (Florida) Well the box came in yesterday and I wanted to really go through it in detail before I got back in touch with you. I really was surprised when it came in and as I was going through everything "all the secrets" I had a little bit of an issue trying to take the base out but after a while I got it. I also like the two tiny side compartments. I love this box totally I love the key compartment I love everything about this box, you are an awesome craftsman and a woodworking artist. Thank you for everything I will definitely refer you to family and friends and will personally do business with you in the future. Good luck in everything you do, thanks again.
Josh E. (New Mexico) George at CelticRealm built a treasure chest for my 5-year-old son that exceeded any reasonable expectations I could have had. George threw himself into the project and thought of every detail imaginable. He is an artist, a master craftsman and a very kind person. The chest is solid, incredibly-well built, and beautiful. It has secret compartments--real ones, not the kind you'd see in a store-bought chest. George could have easily charged ten times what he did for this piece.
My son is thrilled and is searching for treasure to keep safe in his chest! There is no doubt in my mind that he will have this into adulthood. Thank you, thank you!
Mary Theresa (New York) - George, The boxes came today! They are perfect. ... And Corbin's box. It is so beautiful. I love the hidden compartment and "removable" box deep inside the box. I don't know how you did them all so quickly. Thank you so much for helping us to give such thoughtful gifts to those that we love at our rehearsal dinner. I will be recommending you highly! Slainte, Mary Theresa

Tiffany (Alaska) says: Honestly...this box knocked my socks off! I was just speechless when I took it out of the package...it's simply stunning. I bought it for a special man in my life...and I love that it is kind of a manly jewelry box...but yet I still wanted to keep it for myself. The details were just beautiful...I will definitely re-order from George. He also was easy to contact...and was more concerned about the arrival of it than I was! It arrived just in time for Christmas...my man said it was his favourite gift! Thanks so much George! Your gift made this Christmas extra special!

George, I just picked up the box from the post office. You said there are flaws, but I frankly can't see them. It is beautiful and I will send you pictures of it in use and hopefully of his expression when he gets it. Thank you again so very much.
George, "I just finished unwrapping (excellent packaging, by the way!) and
playing with the writing slope. It is beautiful! I especially like the
clever hidden drawers with magnets, and your letter explaining the
materials and finishes. You have been so wonderful and attentive during
this whole process . . . I am so glad to have found your Etsy shop,
knowing that you are a local craftsman, and that you offer such
wonderful products. I will be happy to show this slope and recommend
your work to all my acquaintances and friends. . ."
I wanted to let you know I received the box today.
All I can say is WOW!! I am completely blown away. Talk about being well worth the wait!!
Your attention to detail, the finish, inside and outside, the secret
compartments, the hidden key feature -- have left me speechless!! :)
Thank you so much for making me such a beautiful piece. You are truly a
master craftsman. I am so happy with my purchase and will cherish this
box for many years to come!
