Congratulations for all of the updates to your site! I finally have photos to share with you of the sideboard that we purchased this summer. I LOVE IT! We get so many compliments on the piece, and I could not be more pleased with it. We did indeed have to cut a large rectangular hole in the back for our media equipment to fit, but it also helps to ventilate it so it doesn't get too heated with the equipment hidden away. Re-doing our family room was our 10th anniversary gift to each other, and this piece was a wonderful addition to our room. My husband is concerned now with my desire to have a few more of your pieces in other areas of our home!

Thank you again and I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!!

Our experience purchasing online from you was a joy.We were hesitant to buy the cabinet and painting online because it's hard to tell what it's really like.Through our emails and phone conversations you were very reasurring that these were exceptional items.They certainly were and we thank you. It was a pleasure working with you on this purchase.
Our best.

Hi Ruth-
My BEAUTIFUL cabinets arrived last night. I keep looking at them as they are incredible.
They will drive me to re-do the living room, but I knew that when I purchased them
I just wanted to let you know that I am so happy with my purchase and will keep an eye on your site for other pieces.

The stone heads arrived and are truly elegant! When you get the chance, will you please send me a sales receipt for them--and the pair of cabinets before that--for my records; I especially appreciate the "certificate of antiquity" you furnished for the desk and tea tables. Have a great holiday season and the best 2007!

Hi, Ruth:

Our sideboard arrived safely in New Orleans this week, and it is as beautiful as we anticipated from the photos you previously provided. Now that we have one antique by Zaar here, and one in Connecticut, we are delighted that we have the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful pieces virtually all the time. Sorry - we're declaring a moratorium on any more houses!

All the best,

Hi Ruth;

A quick note to let you know that we received the sideboard yesterday. It

are waiting on art work now!

Well, just wanted to thank you. Take care,

Just wanted to let you know that we have received the cabinet and that my father was very, very happy with it - it was exactly what he had been looking for and it was perfect for the application. I told you that my mom was quite good with ceramics, and some of her lanterns (orient style) and turned works look perfectly at home showcased in and on the cabinet. The artwork on the inside door faces added a very unusual and pleasant touch, and my sister-in-law (the art conservator I told you about) was very impressed and delighted with the piece as well. It was a pleasure working with you during this time, and my dad and I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the product and the customer service we received.

Thanks again,

Dear Ruth,

The beautiful armoires and coffee table arrived July 19th in the afternoon and we left the following day for the mainland. We just got back to Hawaii last night. I wanted to write to you sooner but we were very busy getting
ready for our trip.

Ruth, the pair of armoires are much more beautiful than the photos revealed. They look much, much better than I had expected. We are all so very pleased with them! They are in perfect condition and I can't tell you enough how very beautiful and elegant they look. The coffee table is also very
beautiful and also looks better than the photo of the website. It is also in perfect condition and the carving could not be more beautiful.

Thank you so very much for all your help and patience. It is very reassuring to know that I can order anything from your website and be so
surprised to find the items much better than I had imagined.

Sideboard arrived yesterday, on-time and exactly as described. Very, very pleased with you, Zaar, and of course, the piece itself. Seldom, I have found, do things go exactly as planned to conclude with such a welcomed outcome.

Thank you.

As soon as we receive some new couches that will go in the same area, we will send you a photo so that you can add it to your gallery if you so wish.

I just wanted to let you know that the sideboard arrived this morning, and
it is beautiful...not to mention perfect for the space. I will be sure to
send photos when we get the equipment in it and accessorize abit.

Thanks so much for everything!

Elkridge, MD

Dear Ruth,

A busy schedule has prevented me from writing to you sooner to let you
know how much I like the "new" antiques. Even my husband, who shows
disdain whenever I purchase a modern piece, thinks the daybed and
sideboard are beautiful.

I'll send photos when I get a chance to arrange the pieces in our
"ballroom" the way I would like them to be and also when I get the time
to make a cushion for the daybed.

I finally tore myself away from looking at the antiques on your web
site long enough to take a peek at your "about us" page and was
delighted to see the photo of you with your son and daughters. You have
a lovely family. It was also nice to read about your past as a
missionary. My husband and I studied Taoism and feel that selfless
service to others is an important aspect of our being.

Congratulations on the birth of the puppies!!!!

That's all for now - I'll keep in touch with you every once in a while.
Keep those newsletters coming, I relate to your busy family life and
your farm up there in Maine and enjoy reading about your thoughts
regarding your children.

Hi, Ruth:

The sideboard arrived in great shape. As expected, it is more beautiful "in the flesh" than the catalogue photos indicate. We are truly pleased, and doing business with you was more like acquiring a new friend than engaging in a commercial exercise.

We'll be back for more!

All the best,

Hi Ruth-

LOVE the cabinet!

My husband and I are thrilled with it! We were very nervous since we had never bought an antique without 'seeing it' but we love it! Since it's our first piece of furniture for our future daughters room I will send a picture of the piece in the room once we get it set for her arrival.

Thanks again for all of your help with the purchase. We will shop with you again...soon!

P.S.-The driver was great too, nice guy and very careful!

Ruth, The wonderful chest arrived and it is perfect for the spot it was selected
for!!!! I love it!!
I must comment on Wayne, the deliverer. He readjusted his delivery time to
accommodate my schedule. I had a sister visiting from Michigan and needed
to pick her up during the delivery window. Wayne changed his schedule to
fit this time. I really appreciated this "extra touch"
I am busy selecting what goes into it. I will definitely be a repeat buyer!
Enjoy these years with your children, they pass SO quickly!!!!
Regards and thanks,

Messa, AZ

I've been meaning to phone or write you, but got somewhat sidetracked.

Ruth, the furniture is gorgeous. Pictures do not do justice to the beauty of each piece. I am so happy with each purchase. Thank you.

Hope all is good with your family!
Jacksonville, FL


The sideboard looks FANTASTIC!! It is absolutely the right piece and I am very pleased. I’ll send you a picture. I’m glad I waited for this one.We stopped for dinner on the way home, so it was a bit late. That did not stop my determination to get the piece in the door however!! All the best with your business, and please keep me on your newsletter list. I hope to buy again sometime.



Needham, MA

Hi Ruth,

Just thought I would drop a line to you and let you know I had my furniture delivered yesterday.It is beautiful. It was clean when it arrived and the lines on the front doors make it unique.I am very pleased with the cabinet and thank you for being easy to work with. I also thought you should know that the company you use for delivery was great. The young man who delivered the piece was very careful and considerate. He was so nice that we sent him on his way with a bag full of snacks and soda for his long trip.

Thanks again and I hope to buy from you again,
