Average review
These are very hard to find Hairpin lace forks in very good shape. I really love them. With these I'll be able to work some very old patterns I've been wanted to work for years. The shipping was very quick. I expected it to take longer. The seller was so nice to le me know when she posted it. I will be shopping here again. Thank you so much.
