I ordered this item on Sunday November 14. The expected delivery dates were between November 19 and December 3, which was quite acceptable. Today, November 16, at about 6:45pm, the doorbell rings and, there is a young man holding a parcel. Mrs XXX, I have a parcel for you. And there it was, the item I ordered. Hand-delivered. Probably, the seller is in the area and decided to deliver it himself. What great service. Can't ask for better. The item is as stated and arrived quicker than expected. Will certainly do business again with this seller if the occasion presents itself.
