Buyer Feedback

"I received my sunglasses today and absolutely love them!! Thank you again for your unbelievable service!!" Melinda, Cape Town

"I’ve just received the letter opener & am absolutely thrilled with it! Thanks so much for organizing delivery so swiftly – much appreciated!" Patti Barlin, Gauteng

"I have a daughter living in the UK who is an avid collector of Carrol Boyes items.  Last year I hunted for a particular clock [the 'numbers clock'] - on phoning the Century City store I was informed by Kurt that he had one in stock and would keep it for me.  On arriving at the store he also showed me the credit card holders of which I bought two, all the while we chatted about this and that.

As I am travelling to London again in August I decided to pop into the Century City store to find another gift for Jenni [my daughter].  On entering the store, Kurt gave me such a welcome, remembering my name, that I lived in Hout Bay, worked at Dunes Restaurant and even what I had bought last year - what a memory and what a wonderful persona!

He made suggestions for this year's gift and even made sure I received the special discount on both gifts I had purchased, especially as I had already paid for one and, as an afterthought, bought a second gift. He is such a credit to the Carrol Boyes name. I don't shop at Century City often, but that is where I would go every time and would recommend anyone wanting Carol Boyes gifts to go!" Jayne Bland, Cape Town

It is so rare these days to get good service and you have impressed me immensely. I will be sure to send more gifts this way." Reinet, Dubai

"I have invested in many of your stunning products over the years - and love every single piece I own.  One of the items I've always wanted was the tea trolley - I have the perfect place for it in our brand new home in Cape Town :-) A month or so ago I managed to buy a secondhand one, but it was really in a bad state. I made contact with your team via your website to enquire about restoring and polishing the trolley.  The service I received was absolutely overwhelming - one don't get service like this in South Africa anymore!!! Lauren Adley arranged and facilitated the whole process. Hubert de Rouw at your warehouse accepted the challenge with open arms (literally), and kept me updated all the way.  Yesterday I  collected my trolley, and I am like a little girl with a new toy - I just want to show it to everybody - the trolley looks like 'a million dollars' - brand new :-). I must be one of your happiest clients at the moment - thank you Lauren and Hubert for restoring my faith in awesome service!!! My trolley will now fill it's special place in our new home with pride - a true master centre-focus point indeed." Gerda Gerber

"Thank you SO much for your help with our orders - it's been such a pleasant experience! And thank you so much for the extra box, wrapping paper and ribbon - what a cool touch! I went into the Carrol Boyes shop at Northgate Shopping Centre yesterday, the woman there was just so friendly and professional, the name "Carrol Boyes" represents classy and quality service and goods!" Leanne Shanks

"Thank you so much for an excellent service I received from you. I am so happy with my choice and the condition of the vases!
I received them on friday! Wow 2 days after order. The best turnaround ever! Even better than 'those' who claim to deliver within 48hrs. Thanks so so much, will definitely call again" Lerato Lelaka

“I was introduced to the Carrol Boyes range about 9 years ago. I love the fact that 1) Carrol Boyes is home grown 2) has chosen to remain in SA and create jobs for so many 3) That Carrol 'shares' her passion and creativity with us all 4) Carrol encourages art students by encouraging them to do designs which she has shown off in her shops around SA. Her products are unique and usable and I like to support someone like this. My favourite piece has to be my woman coffee table legs! I look at them every day when I walk into my lounge and it sure makes for interesting conversations from time to time. Of the many other pieces: gravy ladle with rest, paper towel rail woman, bottle stopper at rest, chop stick rests, our cutlery set that we use every day, ....all are my favourites ....” Tracy Wood Fenn
