Lovely gift wrapping from Hungary...

Greetings from The Perch!

The other day I received something from eBay, with the seller being located in Hungary. I love to bid on vintage photos from other countries because it's always interesting when you receive your treasures to see the postage that is used, and sometimes, if you are lucky, you find beautiful old writing in a foreign language on the back of the photo. I save any of the envelopes that could be used in a collage project down the road. And surprisingly, often the postage is not any more than for something ordered within The States.

This was the first time that I ordered anything from Hungary and was so glad I did. The pictures below will tell the story!

I love the way this seller took the time to make my name
and address look so beautiful.
And within the mailing envelope the giftwrap was

And what was inside?
This gorgeous old ballerina photo...

...with the added bonus of beautiful
old script on the back...

I love that the seller took such care with this package. In this age of on-line ordering, constant advertising, and concern only about the bottom dollar, it's so refreshing to see this level of going "the extra mile" in customer service.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Lovely photograph, and yes, when people take the extra time to make sure something purchased arrives intact, it makes you feel good about online shopping!

    1. Yes, it does. I have found some sellers on eBay and Etsy that are really wonderful to work with. Have a great day!
