The French Drum shades are lovely and will be pleasing every time I see them and I'll be so glad I found you. Sadly I somehow got the base width of the hexagonal shades measured wrong...I am very disappointed with myself for not getting it right...but that's my fault, and I am so cross that I didn't get it right because they are really lovely and the trim makes an important difference to them. Thank you very much for a wonderful service. I will think of you and your wonderful service often. You organise it so well and really deserved a correct order from me!"

It has been so skilfully completely restored. I will have no hesitation in commending you to my friends, most of whom are of my vintage and still live in an older styled way with our treasures of a more decorative past. Today's minimalism has no great appeal for us. Continue long to be blessed with your skills."

03.18 Mrs GS, Aldington: "I first met Mrs. Howard on her first week at Evegate, which was very exciting as she was just settling in, and I was there by chance. She was so welcoming and made everything very easy. She had excellent suggestions and with her eye for colour, was particularly helpful to one who cannot tell until she sees it! I brought in lamp bases with old shades and she immediately found the answer and attended to minor repairs to the base. Isobel has a fascinating collection of lamps in the shop, and I was able to find exactly what I wanted as a new bedside light, but revamping an existing shade to pick up the colours. I would not hesitate to recommend Isobel for any lampshade project. She is superb."
03.18 Mrs Y, Ashford: "Many thanks for the work you have done on my lampshades. I am delighted with them. They are lovely and they truly enhance the room."
