"The fan was a gift to a dear friend. She called me as soon as she received the package and was thrilled when I told her how the fan was made and the significance of the flowers. Not only is the fan a beautiful work of art, it is well made and works really well. It is not a false toy, it works as a fan should. I am very pleased with my purchase and really appreciate the attention to detail in the piece. I will be back to Antiques Alive for more fine gifts and beautiful art for myself. Thank you again."
"I wanted to order something special for my wife for our fifth wedding anniversary. My wife is not Korean, so it was nice to be able to give her something which she will always cherish but also represents the cultural wealth of my heritage. The jewelry box which I ordered her arrived within the promised time frame and in perfect condition. It is exactly as shown in the pictures online, if not even nicer in person. I had concerns as to whether or not it would arrive in time (it did) and your customer service was able to provide me with a prompt answer. Having found your website while conducting a wide search online, I can say that yours was the only one that gave me confidence in the authenticity and the quality of craftsmanship of the products available. My wife loved her gift so much that I was able to parlay it into the purchase of a new Park Ji-Sung jersey. Thanks (gahmsahmneeda)."

"The mother of pearl compact mirror was a gift for my daughter. She was delighted! We adopted her from South Korea 25 years ago and every year on the anniversary of her arrival to our family we try to get her a small gift from her native country. I am grateful to have found your company and will return to the site in the future. The artistry in your products is superb and the service satisfying. Thank you."
"The tour was good despite the very heavy rain. We still visited all places but quickier due to the rain. All went smoothly. The people were very kind and helpful. The city is really beautiful so I think I should come back in the future and go again and stay a few days....and in the dry season...:). Many thanks!"

Being of Korean birth, they made very special gifts for her graduation from medical school. They hope to visit Korea when they finish their training in three years.

"A few years a go I had the pleasure to travel to Korea for business and I was struck at that time by not only the friendliness of the locals and the beauty of the country I was greatly impressed by the Korean peoples attention to detail and quality of work in all things that they do.
This year was my 5th Wedding anniversary and the traditional gift on this occasion is something made of wood, I immediately thought of a jewellery box as the perfect gift for my wife. The love I have for my wife is so great that only the finest of gifts will do and so in my mind there was nowhere else to look but Korea. I have to say at the start that I did not think it would be easy to find what I was looking for but can you imagine my surprise when I found your website and in only a few minutes found the exact thing I had in mind.
Now it is always hard to be sure when you buy things off the Internet but from what I saw the box looked very nice and I was very pleased to see that you offered a fast courier service to Australia and you accepted my prefer form for payment. After placing the order I received the confirmation email which is always great and after a day or so you sent through the shipping number for me and I could easily track the progress of my parcel.
The package arrived on schedule and in good time for my anniversary (1st April). Once I had eagerly unwrapped my gift I was stunned at how perfect it was, just as the photos on the 'net had shown. It was of course so much more beautiful once I could see it for real. Upon giving it to my wife she was absolutely delighted with it ! and cried tears of joy that I was able to find such a beautiful gift.
It now sits proudly on her dressing table and is filled with her favourite items of jewellery. I am sorry if I have gone over the top a bit but I did want to pass on how absolutely perfect the whole online shopping experience was for me with you and just how much my wife and I will always treasure the box. Thank you so much for all of your help."

"I purchased the box and music as a gift for my mother (who is Korean) and she loves it. I was also impressed by the craftsmanship and detail. The music also brought back memories for her. As far as the ordering process, the purchase was very easy and your website is well organized. Given my experience, I would definitely order from you again and recommend you to others. Thank you and best of luck!"
