I love the feel and craftsmanship that you find with handmade. As I want my customers to love handmade things too I pay great attention to detail using only the finest quality materials. Remember that handmade items are truly unique...you will own a one-of-a-kind treasure. Think of how happy your Charming Elegance gifts will make your friends colleagues or loved ones. ******************************************************** PAYMENTS: I welcome the following types of payments: 1.
