Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook Set
Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook Set
Offered by supermart USA
Price: 28.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, good price, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a set of Denise knitting needles and chose to get a set of crochet hooks so I could use the cables from both sets. The crochet hooks and case are made to the usual Denise high standards and the set was well packaged and dispatched quickly.

I am very pleased with the set and the seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and atmospheric thriller, 18 April 2014

I loved the setting and the characters and found the story intriguing and multi layered. I liked the book better than the TV series it inspired and look forward to reading more in this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars An easy read but not my favourite of his, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first Alexander McCall Smith set in Edinburgh. I found it an easy read but did not really engage with the characters, all of whom I found rather unlikeable, shallow and self centred.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, intense and absorbing novel, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Secret History is the story of a group of students who are studying Classics under a charismatic professor at a progressive college. The book starts with what seems to be the end, and the first half of the story describes how the group came together and the circumstances which led to the events described at the beginning of the book. The second half explores what happens after these events, and the impact on each of the individuals as well as what happens to the group and their professor.

It is an intense, detailed exploration of these individuals and how they respond to the circumstances they find themselves in. I found myself drawn in to the complex and detailed story, and desperately wanting to know what happened to each of the individuals.

The book is extremely well written and the characters and places are hauntingly real.

Merrell Women's Kahuna Iii W Classic Taupe Sandal J88800 8 UK
Price: 65.10

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, high quality walking sandals, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These sandals look nice, not too clunky, so can be worn for casual dress as well as for walking. They are very solidly made and have multiple size adaptation points for a comfortable fit. They are lovely to walk in, soft cushioning for the soles of the feet and enough support to walk for a long time and over uneven ground without discomfort. I love them


Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Persimmon (will only fit Kindle Paperwhite)
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Persimmon (will only fit Kindle Paperwhite)
Price: 24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great design which enhances and protects the Paperwhite, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case is designed so the Paperwhite fits into it easily and snugly. It is slim and lightweight so the Paperwhite is still compact and easy to hold in one hand. The case is also strong and has a soft interior to the front cover so the device and screen are well protected when carried in a bag. The magnetic clasp is strong and clips shut firmly and best of all the device switches off when the cover is closed and on when the cover is opened.

So to summarise the case is attractive and well designed and enhances the Paperwhite as well as protecting it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring book, lovely projects, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unexpected Afghans (Paperback)
This book focuses on a number of crochet techniques, such as lace, cables and Tunisian crochet, and provides a range of projects using each technique. There are small projects to get you started and larger projects with differing levels of complexity and design ideas to follow on.
The projects are varied and inspiring and made me want to start crocheting right away! There is something here for every taste and skill level and plenty of challenges for those who would like to extend their crochet skills.
Each project has an introduction from the designer, plenty of photos and detailed instructions including charts. The designers who contributed include many well known knit and crochet designers.
Altogether a lovely book.


Gardman Universal Squirrel Baffle
Gardman Universal Squirrel Baffle
Offered by Ray Online BIZ
Price: 13.29

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Put the baffle on my feeding station. No more squirrel problem.
I've seen squirrels eyeing the food and they have several times tried to climb up the pole. Each time they reach the baffle and can't get ant further. They just slide back down the pole. Mostly they don't bother any more.
Brilliant, I'm delighted with it.


The Puppet Company Finger Puppet Boxed Gift Set African Collection
The Puppet Company Finger Puppet Boxed Gift Set African Collection

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, supplier could have packaged better, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The puppets are beautifully designed and made, with lots of detail. They are a nice size, larger than I expected. They could be used as toys or puppets because of this. They come in a presentation box, ideal for gifting. In my opinion they are excellent value for money.

The supplier posted them in an un padded envelope and so the box got slightly squashed, which was a shame, although the puppets weren't damaged at all. I bought another set from a different supplier who used bubble wrap and the box arrived in pristine condition.
