5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two colours of this Pearlescent Shimmer paper - I preferred the silver for the craft project I'm working on, but was impressed with the quality of both. An excellent product, well packaged, and delivered really quickly - I'll definitely be using this company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product - good value for money, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite initial reservations as to how effective this product would be, we have been delighted and impressed with how quickly it cools food and drink from room temperature if it is plugged into the mains, and how well it keeps cool food cold when used in the car. We even found that on arrival home, after the coolbox hadn't been plugged in for over 24 hours, it was still cool inside.
We have had a three-week touring holiday, staying in Travelodges, and have been able to partly self-cater by using this product. We had it in the room with us, and found it to be quiet and unobtrusive.
The handle held up well to transporting full loads in and out of each venue. We would highly recommend this coolbox.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic without the rose tinted glasses, 18 Jan 2013
An excellently balanced collection of stories and anecdotes giving a real flavour of what it was like to work on the railways back in the days when railwaymen (and women - though all the subjects were men) took a real pride in the service they gave the travelling public and others. It was refreshing to read that despite the often harsh conditions (well documented in this collection) and poor material rewards all of those interviewed wouldn't have worked at any other job. My only caveats are (a) the collection was too short and (b) that there was a little too much emphasis on driving and running shed work - but maybe a later volume will explore a further set of jobs. Highly recommended and should be on the 20th century history curriculum in schools.
