A couple great stories from River Oak customers....
"A woman purchased the “Guardian Angel” ring from me this time last year. She was telling mehow she was at her lowest ebb in life, hence her decision to buy the ring. This morning, she came to see me again, still wearing her “Guardian Angel” ring, but also showed me her new engagement ring!! She’s since met the man of her dreams and said her life has been transformed since last year and said she has never taken her “Guardian Angel” ring off her finger since she bought it! It means so much to her."
A young guy visited my shop last week with his family and purchased the ‘Paradise’ wrist-cord. He had just recently climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and said they had been searching for something appropriate to recognize his achievement but couldn’t find anything suitable….until they walked past my shop window and seen the bracelets! I thought that was another nice story. Now this young man will always associate his/your cord bracelet with Mt. Kilimanjaro!"
