"Oh my! They are pristine, and I can't believe I got this bargain."
“The condition and size were just as stated. A great buy!”
"AMAZING job! I will absolutely buy online with MyBackporchTreasures.com again. I’ve been a long-time donor and local shopper but had never purchased online before. My purchase came within a few days, was in perfect condition, and looked like it had been carefully packaged. Thank you!"
“What a beautiful wallet! I love it. The team at My Backporch Treasures are true all-stars. Thank you!”
