Client Testimonials


During the course of business, we have had the pleasure to deal with many wonderful people. Some have been so kind as to allow us to publish their comments concerning our transactions. We provide a few here to serve as references for our commitment to customer satisfaction.

  • "I received the miniatures and they are wonderful. Thanks for your assistance and fast shipping. I am very pleased." Betty Brooks, Pasadena, MD 
  • "Received the desk a few days ago.  It's really stunning!  Tell your craftsman that the leather work is really amazing. We have an antique appraiser and dealer who thought if we actually used it as a desk to write invitations and thank you notes from, we were crazy.  It's a work of art! Looking forward to doing business with you again."  K. Isaacson,  NH 
  • "I am pleased to say that my dealings with Antiques by Alternatives have been most satisfying. You can count on Lori responding immediately to your email communications. She is extremely responsive to special requests; and worked patiently with me to arrive to mutually agreeable payment and shipping arrangements.  She worked sincerely to find shipping that was both economical and secure.  My deliveries, a big chest of drawers and smaller porcelain items, were extremely well packaged. This site offers a very wide variety of quality items. The items I have ordered from Antiques by Alternatives have been accurately described and photographed.  In sum, I can assure potential buyers that they can confidently engage in transactions with this merchant!"  David Clark, Baltimore, MD 
  • "Vintage Transport delivered the secretary early Friday morning in pristine condition & I absolutely love it, especially all the keys! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything in getting it to Texas. And please keep in touch....let me know when you get new &  "neat" things like the secretary/safe."  Linda Smith, Temple, TX 
  • "The drawing? I LOVE IT! It was packaged perfectly! I was holding off on the others that you sent till I saw what this looked like. Keep me in mind when you see any great pencil or ink drawings. Just send pics, I'm always in the market for my collection. Thanks again!!!!!"  M. McCarthy 
  • "Thank you for your assistance with the purchase of the Venetian glass mirror, and for following up with the customs agent. I have received it, and am quite pleased with the packing and quality of the item itself. Looking forward to doing business in the future!" Terry Oaks, The Little Antique Shop, 615-352-5190, 6043 Westgate, Hwy 100, Nashville, TN 37205 
  • "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you, and extend my appreciation for your professionalism and your exquisite taste. Last week was a bit of a brutal week for me,  but at the very end of the day on Friday we received the buffet deux corps, delivered by truck. It is always scary buying such a unique piece over the Internet, even with your very clear photographs posted on your site, I was not prepared for the piece to exceed all of my expectations! Once again I want to thank you for the opportunity to work together. If you should ever require any references in the future, please do not hesitate to call upon me."  Michael Potter, CA 
  • "The 17th century drawing has arrived, very beautifully packed and in excellent condition.  I was happy to receive such a lovely piece and will not hesitate to purchase from you again."  Jeff Ruda, CA 
  • "Antiques by Alternatives has provided me with great service. All items came in perfect condition and were exactly as depicted on line.
    Thanks so much." Carmela, Redlands, CA
  • "I just got back from doing a show and my veil was in the box; I am very pleased.  It is such a delicate piece and  I swoon in lace. Am taking off again to go on the road so the timing was great. It was a very smooth transaction, thank you."    Laurie Ramesbotham
  • "The package arrived yesterday the painting is just as described. Please thank your packing person for a wonderful job. I look forward to future transactions."         A. Early 
  • "Thanks.  I have received the four cars and they are as expected - great!  They are in my shop space already and are very appealing.  I appreciate the service and consideration provided.  I will keep my eye on your shop in the future. Bob Howlett & Matt The Cat - The Owl's Roost
