" I bought a gorgeous Bookmark for a present. Sent a msg to see if I could arrange collection instead of waiting for the post. Jim hand delivered it for me the same evening. Couldn’t ask for a better service. Thank you [😁] I will definitely buy from Quirky Metals again. [😊] "

" Totally brilliant and unique. In a world full of cheap mass production who wouldnt want a piece of this. Quality and individuality, the best gift money can buy. "

"My order has arrived this morning, we are absolutely thrilled with it.
The clock is stunning and a real talking piece.
The other items are gifts and I am sure will be gratefully received.
Keep up the good work, you deserve to do well.
