Subject: Your service

I have been a regular bidder for about four months and feel that I should tell you how impressed I am with your service. At all levels from describing the lots, bidding, early notification and sending the lots you show a high degree of professionalism. Congratulations.


Subject: Lot 7858

Dear Sir or Madam
Re my previous mail of today.
The stamps, lot 7858, auction No 5179 arrived this afternoon. Thank you so much, as they are in superb condition, especially with the 4d dull grey green. I have been looking for that stamps for years now and finally have it in such good condition.


Subject: Thank You

I have just received the stamps I bid on in auction number 6189 and I felt I must just say, once again, how impressed I am at the quality of service you provide. I sent you a cheque via second class mail on the Thursday and received the stamps on Saturday...Once again, many thanks from a very sattisfied customer.


Subject: Recent Purchase

I would like to confirm the safe arrival of my purchase. Many thanks for your friendly and efficient service.


Subject: Praise

I would think that you don't get too many messages like this, but after years of being a satisfied Sandafayre customer, I thought I should write. Whoever does your packaging takes great pride in his/her work, and should. Whatever I order arrives in a meticulous condition, almost a work of art. It must take a great deal of time and care to produce these packages, but your costumers must be exceptionally grateful, even if they don't take the time to say so. Well done, congratulations, and thank you to whoever is responsible.
