Blown Glass Eggs for Easter
Our last shipment was supposed to contain blown glass eggs for Easter, but they were mistakenly not included. They are, however, on the way now and should arrive just before the end of the month. We will have 5 different colors to choose from. Keep an eye out for them in New Arrivals and Other Blown Glass and order quickly in order to receive them in time for Easter!

New Shipment Ordered
We have a new shipment leaving Cairo on Tuesday, February 20th. It should be here around the end of the month. This shipment will replenish a lot of the perfume bottles, oil warmers, blank papyrus, writing pads and rosetta stones. We are planning to place a very large order soon to be sent by sea freight. We are exploring this option to lower our shipping expenses, thereby lowering your cost to purchase our products. Posted by kharbour: - 9:15 am - December 8th, 2006

Christmas is Upon Us!
Wow! Keep those Christmas orders coming! We have a multitude of items that make great gifts for Christmas, as well as all year long. The items we carry are all made in Egypt, and make very unique gifts. Normally I get orders out the same day, but this time of year it might not make it out the door until the following day. Your orders are always shipped quickly and professionally. Today I wanted to post a few feedbacks I have received from super people who took the time to email me with their thanks: Received this merchandise yesterday and adore everything. Look forward to doing business with you again. Elaine, New Jersey Thank you so much such good service. I cannot believe my order is here already! The bottles are all beautiful. I surely am going to tell my friends who dabble in making fragrances. Rosie, Indiana Just to let you know the vase arrived safely today no doubt due to the exceptional packaging. I would like to add I am very impressed with the manner you dealt with my initial inquiry and order. Many thanks. Brian, United Kingdom Thank you to all of our customers. We greatly appreciate you!

Just want to let everyone know that I have been really busy getting our new items online. We now have calendars, spiral notepads, Christmas ornaments, gorgeous Isis boxes, 8x10 papyrus paintings and many, many more things that would make wonderful gifts for birthdays, Christmas, etc. You can see them HERE. Also, take a look in the Crystal category as there are lots of new things there also. An example is a crystal apple that would make a great gift for that favorite teacher, at a very affordable price. Keep in mind that this is very high quality 30% lead crystal from the esteemed Asfour Crystal in Egypt. I will be adding more items for weeks to come, so check back often!
