What people think about our service!

The Acorn Gallery is great and Diane was so attentive to my needs. I purchased a Bull Terrier EDGE Sculpture. When I first contacted them, they were not sure when the new sculptures would be available. They continued to keep me up to date over about a two month period, while reserving the sculpture I wanted. When the sculptures finally became available they immediately sent it to me from the UK to Colorado in the USA. It was packed very well to prevent any possible damage and arrived in less than a week, via UPS... by far the quickest I have ever received an international package... especially one of this size. I absolutely love my new Bull Terrier EDGE Sculpture and am thrilled with all the wonderful customer service I received from Diane and The Acorn Gallery. And amazingly, everything was done through Facebook Messenger and Paypal... couldn't have been any easier! Thank you so much!! Ken S, Colorado, USA. April 2017

Absolutely top notch service. Got a beautiful Kealey Farmer picture from here and it was reserved and delivered at a convenient time and arrived when said. Stunning picture and Diane has been a great help and kept in touch the whole time from ordering to receiving. Fantastic Service. Angie C, Preston. March 2017

A fantastic service. My husband and I purchased our wonderful Danny Abrahams picture through messenger on Facebook. Nothing was too much trouble and we got a perfect picture for us. Thank-you! Bibby M, Tamworth. March 2017

Good Morning Diane/John, Just wanted to say a big thanks you for helping sort out the Kealey Farmer prints for my wife's birthday.  She has opened them this morning and absolutely loves them!! I can only say GREAT customer service and the fact you were in constant contact with me and hand delivered, to a service station near me (!) was just a sign of how personally you treat your customers.  Keep up the good work.  Next time I want a pic, YOU will be my FIRST point of call! Take care! March 2017, Allen H. Cleethorpes

Dear Diane and John, Just a quick note to confirm safe receipt of the MacKenzie Thorpe sculpture, which arrived this afternoon and, thankfully, in one piece. It really is a lovely piece and thank you for getting it to us so quickly. March 2017, James and Lesley C, Oxted

Hi Diane, Many thanks for the tour this afternoon. Very, very enjoyable. And I learnt alot! Looking forward to my next visit! Feb 2017, John T, Malton

Hi Diane, The print has been delivered to my mums thank you. I have just managed to unwrap it. Just wanted to say a big thank you, the picture is lovely, I am really happy with it. It will look great where I want to put it. Thank you also for managing to match the frame it is identical to my other and I think it suits the picture also, it will look great when it's hung. Once again thanks for your help and excellent customer service, I look forward to dealing with you in the future. 
Feb 2017, Amanda S, Rotherham

I just thought I'd drop you a quick line to say my Ed Rust piece arrived in Jersey, in one piece, which is amazing given how delicate it it is! Thankyou for wrapping it so well! I am really pleased with it and it sits next to my other Ed Rust sculpture. Jan. 2017, Claire F, Jersey 

My Stephen Hanson prints have arrived today! Wonderful! Thankyou! December 2016, Cynthia D, Ohio, USA

Just a quick thanks for your help in getting hold of the Kealey Farmer piece and delivering for us, it looks great! The art gallery we've used in the past let us down and we thought we'd missed out on the painting, which goes with our other Kealey farmer art. Thankfully you managed to get hold of one of the last ones. Certainly recommend your service and we'll keep an eye on the website and see what else takes our fancy. So again thanks and have a good Christmas. December 2016, Phil H, Worksop

Dear John & Diane, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the personal delivery today of my print. Its beautiful and the frame is beautiful too!! My husband loves it. Thank you so much :-) November 2016, Fleur B, London

Hi Diane and John (Re: Danny Abrahams, surprise commission for wife)
Within 40 minutes of arriving back home our masterpiece is on the wall and looks wonderful! I have to admit I had butterflies in my stomach on the drive up wondering if I had done the right thing but the moment I set eyes on the painting I knew I had! Although I had been expecting a reaction from Ann I don't think even I was prepared for the strength of it! She was so taken aback by the likeness and kept going on about the holiday during which the photograph had been taken. We went for coffee after we left you and she filled up again which even brought a tear to my eyes! Thank-you both so much for what you have done and I'd be extremely grateful if you would pass on my sincere thanks to Danny. I know we'll be back up in Yorkshire at some point in the not too distant future and there's nothing more certain than a visit to 'The Acorn Gallery'.
June 2016, Stephen W. Birmingham

Fantastic newsletter! Always a joy to get and read, thanks!
June 2016, Tony M. Pocklington

The picture is grandiose! I am so excited!
Many thanks for all.

Hi John and Diane, Thank you so much for the swift delivery of our Danny Abrahams print. It is beautiful! The frame suits the image so well. We are highly delighted both with the quality of the paintings and especially with the superb service from yourselves. The oil painting is now taking pride of place in our newly decorated lounge and looks superb in situ. We were blown away when John turned up with the framed print and didn't expect it to be so soon. Wow, outstanding service! Once again many thanks and please thank the framer for a quick turnaround and quality work.
March 2016, Paul E, Wakefield

Just wanted to say a big thank-you for my card and bottle of bubbly. It really was a lovely surprise! I have to say the painting Brian chose for me is absolutely gorgeous and he told me how kind you were in storing it for him :) 
Thank-you again and we will call in and have a chat when we're back in May.

August 2014, Kate, New Jersey, USA
Hello Diane and John, 
Thank you so much for delivering the picture today. I'm sorry I missed you - apparently only by a few minutes - if Canon Vessey hadn't been preaching the sermon I would probably have seen you! I am delighted with it and was absolutely thrilled with the pebble - such a wonderful surprise. I had been on your website to look at Sarah's new collection and was disappointed that that particular pebble was not available as it was my favourite - so was very excited to see it in the box. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Sarah for both works of art which will be treasured. I hope you had a lovely time with your friends and a safe journey home. Many thanks again 
July 2014 Barbara, Suffolk

Hi. Just want to say a big huge thank you for the beautiful Sarah Ewing picture we bought this morning. We've put it up in our dining room and it's perfect. The only thing is .... I'd really like another one in the same colours. If you ever get one, either a small square or even a portrait, please could you let us know.  We loved your shop and next time, we promise to venture deeper than the Sarah Ewing wall!! Thanks again and take care,
January 2014 Fiona, Darlington

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a great shopping experience this morning.

Plans for location of the others is well under way!! Cheers xx
March 2013 Alison, Barnsley 
Hi Diane, Thank you so much, she is so proud and yes it has pride of place on her bedroom wall. Her mirror and her own "art" was removed and the wall given a fresh coat of paint to ensure it looked perfect. I can't thank you enough for helping making the purchase of her own piece of art a wonderful experience, no doubt we'll be back soon to add to Harriettes and our own collections. Kindest regards

Re: Quirky Houses
"Please let Mr Jackson know that I am delighted with his painting of Herdwick Croft! I have already shown it to a few friends and they have all loved it! I can't stop looking at it and it makes me smile which is my main criteria for choosing any piece of art! We will not be able to stay in this house forever as there is nothing in the village, so as we get older, we will have to move back to a town with more facilities, so the painting will be a lifelong and unique reminder of our happy time living in the barn. "

"PS Please feel free to show this email to anyone who is tempted to have a painting done of their house!"
