The best incense and the best shipment and package. A+ Thanks


The Greek riasson I received in Rayon is cool and lightweight, despite being of very solid and sturdy construction. Again, it fits great and looks amazing. Thank you so much! I\'m sticking with Istok!

I received my order today; the shipping speed was a surprise. RPS Air got it to NY in just one week. As far as the quality is concerned: Wow! I showed a few folks and they couldn\'t believe they were \"off-the-rack.\" They fit perfectly and are absolutely beautiful. Both are very sturdy and very comfortable. The Russian ryassa in English Wool is warm and cozy, but not too hot. I couldn\'t believe it came out of the box with no visible wrinkles; it\'s so tightly woven. It\'s a big hit.

Yet again, we are about to send you an order with confidence that we will receive another beautiful item, whether metal or fabric. We only wish that we could afford more! Thank you for your excellence.

My beloved friends in Christ, you are beautiful people in Christ and you help me out all the time- if I could afford I would send a thank you gift, sadly I can not afford as yet, that is why I say thank you with my heart in the e-mails.

I hate trying to order from you, because of the security box, and numbers, i can never get it correct, you should have an alternative way for those of us to shop, after 6 times, i still cannot get it right, i think this will be my last time shopping at your store.. i am not very computer litereat, hmost of the time i go to one of your comperitors, because of this, sincerely yours, gary l grimmette

Dear Valued Customer, Contemporary times and credit card companies require certain procedures implemented on an e-commerce store. We must comply with this regulations to stay in business. On the other hand, we are not sure what you mean by \' the security box, and numbers\'. If you have a profile with us, meaning you registered on our site and created your login ID and password, you have to enter any security numbers nowhere. These numbers are required only if you place an order as an anonymous customer or when you sign-up for a newsletter. It looks like there is a simple confusion. We use one of the easiest and customer-friendly carts on the globe, and once you have it through one time, there shall not be any problem. In any case, there is always an option for you to send your order to us via e-mail and we will enter it for you in our system. Regards, Rdr. Michael Sales Dept.

Greetings in Christ!! Thank you so very much for the kindness - I have never met such beautiful people in this fortunate journey to Christ!! You have impressed me by your sincere kindness, understanding and trust- it has brought sweet tears to my eyes. THANK YOU!!
