Customer Feedback - Buy With Confidence!

Just wanted to let you know that we had the big unveiling of my portrait last Saturday for my birthday and I absolutely LOVE it!!! Love the cuttings, love the composition. Perfect. It’s just stunning and now has pride of place in our living room. It has garnered a lot of interest (I posted a pic of it on Facebook) so you may receive further enquiries. Please let CHESS know that she is a genius!!! Take care and thank you for everything! (Liz, Southend on Sea) March 2024

I received the artwork very quickly and it’s in perfect condition. You packed it so well! I absolutely love it! Karen (San Jose, California) February 2024

My mum, sister and I want to express our sincere thanks for all of your efforts in getting the Mackenzie Thorpe to us so quickly; and with the special message from Mackenzie himself. We are honestly blown away by your support and are so grateful. Dad loved it and has it up on the wall already! (Lauren (Southend) February 2024
Hi Both, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the delivery of the EDGE HEDGEHOG. This truly is a beautiful piece of Art and I know my good lady will be absolutely thrilled. I am over the moon with the purchase but more importantly the great service you have provided. Craig (Wakefield) November
The print is awesome, no damage, very happy with the purchase.
I appreciate all the help! Scott B. (Indiana, USA) March 2022
Hi Diane, I would just like to say how lovely it was to receive my order in person. What a unique and very personal touch, there is still a lot to be said for that type and quality of service. It was so nice to chat and brought the whole buying experience from the Acorn Gallery to such a pleasant conclusion…..I dare not say an end, as hopefully, we can find some more pieces in the future. John H. (Essex) January 2022
Diane/John, Good to see you on Monday and thank you for your delivery of 'Timeless Beauty'. I hope you had a good trip back to York? I am delighted with the bronze, which perhaps exceeds my expectation and I look forward to impressing friends and family with my acquisition. Regards, Geoff G, (Bedford) October 2021
Diane Hi, Just a quick note to say my painting arrived today, it took a few days to get it through customs. Oh my gosh I love it.  It is even better than I thought, amazing. Thank you, Stay safe, Regards, Claire F (Jersey) March 2021
Hi Diane / John, You have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and so very helpful. I will definitely be buying my next piece of art from you and recommending you. I am going to visit your gallery once lockdown is over to view your collections particuarly McKenzie Thorpe as a reward for surviving lockdown. Once again a big thank you. Kind regards Mark L (London, UK) February 2021
Good afternoon Diane, Item already received. Wrapped beautifully, so no damage. Absolutely delighted with it.  Can’t thank you enough for such a quick and professional service. With very best wishes, Tracy G (W.Sussex) December 2020 
Hi guys, Just to say the little baby elephant edge sculpture arrived safely. Everything was excellent so many thanks for my purchase! Keep up the good work and stay safe! Regards Mike H (Plymouth) November 2020 

Hello John & Diane, I would like to thankyou for your continued superb service and for getting the Mackenzie Thorpe piece to me so quickly. It was opened this morning (Birthday Boy lol) and is now sat in pride of place with my other sculptures. My wife has said we are going to plan a visit to come and see the shop as we have never been before. Hopefully it won't be too long. Regards and best wishes to you both. Dave H (Middlesbrough) November 2020 

It's here! And it's amazing! Thank you for your good  communication and customer service. Allison K. (Launceston) September 2020

I have just had personally delivered two pieces of art from John and Diane. From an initial comment to more in-depth discussions regarding two pieces I loved, to swapping frames to suit my room decor, to dealing with my anxious progress enquires and double checking, The Acorn Gallery has provided nothing less than stellar service from start to finish. Messages are answered quickly, no question is too big or small, no enquiry too much trouble. I have felt in safe and professional, not to mention humorous, hands throughout. Cannot recommend highly enough, especially with large value purchases that you might be nervous about. The pictures have bought me such joy and that is borne of the service from The Acorn Gallery. Michelle S (Sutton Coldfield) August 2020

Hi Diane & John, My pictures arrived yesterday afternoon. I am delighted with them both. The frames are perfect they go nicely with my colour scheme.  I am also glad I bought the two. Thank you once again for your help, it has been a pleasure doing business with you. Cherry H (Stroud) August 2020 

Dear Diane and John, A huge thank you for hand delivering my beautiful Mackenzie. Wow it's just gorgeous. Even better in the flesh and I don't think I'd realised just how huge it is, but it actually sits perfectly where we thought. Wishing you both continued success with the Acorn Gallery. So wonderful to be doing something that you love for a living. We will get up there to see you one of these fine days soon. Take care both of you and thank you for everything. Warmest regards, Jules H (Rugby) June 2020 
Hi John & Diane, the picture looks great on my bathroom wall! Your friendly personal service is second to none & your variety of stock is why I love using Acorn Gallery. Will be buying again soon! All the best, Stewart T, (Guisborough) June 2020
To John & Diane, Just to say thank you very much for the painting. We have been saving for a while so we could get an original piece of artwork . We have been looking in art gallery's all over the lake district, a place close to our hearts, but also searching for an artist whose work we would love. We came across Danny Abraham's work and his story and it just fits the bill perfectly. We searched lots of his lovely paintings but have been on your site many times in the last few months and kept coming back to this painting. I showed my wife the painting while we were away at the weekend telling her this was the one and she agreed instantly so we bought it there and then. Stunning piece, looks lovely, so happy with it. Thank you again also for the lovely thoughtful card and a great service. Warren & Marie A, (Ormskirk) December 2019 
Hi John & Diane, It has been a real pleasure to shop with yourselves and we shall pop in now and again and keep an eye out for some eye catching pieces. You are a lovely couple and a credit to your business. You deserve to do well. Thank you and kind regards, Karen S, (Pocklington) November 2019
Hi Diane, all went well, the print arrived here yesterday in perfect condition. 
I am really pleased with my purchase and the way you handled everything.
I am looking forward doing business with you again :)
Oliver W (Germany) November 2019
Hi Both, I'd just like to say thank you for your excellent customer service over the last few weeks. It has been a pleasure dealing with you from start to finish. Cheers! Peter A (Birmingham) November 2019
Thank you for taking so much time with me to help me decide!! I am very pleased with the paintings and will hopefully be back for more when I work out where to put them! Jane C (Goole) October 2019
Dear Diane and John, The picture arrived safely today and is as perfect as I remember it being when I first saw it 'in the flesh'.  It's up on the wall already.
Thank you so much for your great service. Debbie B (Bexhill), September 2019
Just wanted to say a big thanks for letting me know that the art work would be dropped off a little later on Monday, I'm really pleased with the art work and also your  professional, personal service. It was lovely dealing with yourself and John. Lorraine L, Lincolnshire, July 2019
I honestly don't know where to start with my praise about the amazing and professional service I received. I ordered a Mackenzie Thorpe print as a surprise for my husbands 50th Birthday and john personally brought the framed print all the way from North Yorkshire to my home in Hampshire on what was the hottest day of the year! My husband got very emotional when I gave him the print of a much loved childhood memory and the icing on the cake, a personal message from Mackenzie himself. Thank you so much for arranging this and we look forward to adding to our collection in the near future. The Rose Family, Hampshire, July 2019
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the painting and the fantastic delivery service! Painting is up and I’m in love. Looks beautiful!. Claire W, Swanley, May 2019
Hi Diane and John, I chose you because you were so efficient and such nice emails :-) Thank you for making it so easy and happy for me. Catherine S, Dublin, May 2019
Hi John and Diane, Just wanted to let you know that my piece has arrived safe and sound. It’s even more beautiful than I thought and I’ve noticed so many more small details. I need to do a bit of art reorganisation now but will try to send you a picture when I get everything sorted. Thanks for yet another seamlessly easy purchase. Karen M, Paisley, April 2019
Dear Diane and John, Just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful service; for the updates from order to delivery and the quick receipt of my goods which have arrived today. All the best. Lorraine K (Chelmsford) April 2019
Hi Diane and John, I was pleased to pop into your shop on a sad day, my friend's husbands funeral, and had been looking for a picture and when I saw the bluebell wood one I fell in love with it. I can see I will be looking for additional ones in the near future. I will pop in next time I am in the area... Your shop is lovely and you are so welcoming. Miriam J (Liverpool) February 2019
Good afternoon,Diane just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for John personally delivering our picture and for the bottle. Its was very much appreciated.
Kind regards Andrew S (Chelmsford) November 2018
We recently purchased two sculptures from the Acorn Gallery, Diane. We saw the pieces on the Internet and we just fell in love. We had never bought an art piece online and we didn’t know what to expect so we wrote by email to Diane. We live in New York and didn’t know if we were going to be able to buy them or even have the pieces delivered to the US. Diane made it all happen for us. It was such an easy transaction! They were perfectly wrapped and got to us at the exact time that she promised. Diane is a pleasure to work with. She answered all our emails within hours and she gave us so much confidence in the transaction. We just love working with her. Great buying experience and amazing art pieces. Juliana M (New York, USA) November 2018
Arrived today and as expected, is a beautiful piece of original art. Thank you so much for your continued professionalism and excellent customer service. Kerry B (Cumbria) October 2018
A great couple who run this gallery. We wanted to buy a painting and the only time we had was on a Sunday which they were closed. I emailed them on the Saturday evening and got a response within the hour and mentioned they would gladly open up the gallery on Sunday for us. That’s service which you can’t fault. They were very pleasant and I would recommend this gallery. MA (Wakefield) October 2018
Diane, IT'S AMAZING! I'm in love with it! I just wanted to share with you some pictures. Thank you so much, it was so well packed and it got here so soon... thank you for all your help. I'll be in touch soon about the other piece. Juliana M (New York) September 2018
Hello Diane, I just wanted to say thanks to you and John for sorting out the issue I had with my painting (scratched frame). I realise it wasn’t much but it was just something I couldn’t take my eye off and it was detracting from the enjoyment of the piece. I always say you can tell how good a business is by its after-sales service, and yours was first class. So once again, thanks for the assistance, and thanks to John for all those miles he drove, it was very much appreciated, and hopefully I’ll be doing business with you in the future. Kind Regards, 
Russell F (Chester-le-Street) September 2018
Hi Diane and John, I just got home and saw my lovely picture! What a fantastic piece!! It will certainly look great in my new house... and what can I say about the delivery service? Far beyond what was expected but thoroughly appreciated! Service way above and beyond. Of course I know where I'll be coming when I need further pieces for empty walls... Paul T (Tonbridge) September 2018
Dear John and Diane , Thank you so much for delivering the Kealey  Farmer today.It is now hanging on the wall ,looks great . It was very nice to meet you both and I hope to purchase some more Artwork in future from you . Safe Journey and thank you again , kindest Regards, Ian N (Leicestershire). August 2018
Just to let you know, our picture has arrived safely, and is already hanging in its designated space, and we are delighted with it. Thanks very much, Margaret I (Helston) July 2018 
Just a quick thank you for a pleasurable buying experience. I love the picture and personal delivery was a nice touch. You obviously have as low opinion of couriers as I do :) I shall keep an eye on your website in the future. Neil S (Melton Mowbray) June 2018  
Thank you both so much for all of your help. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and your communication has been first class and also very efficient.
So looking forward to the Orangutans arriving and to be able to view them properly. Your regular posts on social media are both interesting and informative.Trevor D (Prestwick) April 2018  

Thank you for responding to my initial request at the ridiculous time of the evening that I sent it, and for making the whole transaction smooth and pain free. Graeme S. (Folkestone) March 2018 

I’ve been meaning to email to let you know that my painting the Cheshire Hat arrived safe and sound. It’s truly beautiful and will look fabulous when I hang it next to the white rabbit this weekend. Thank you for fantastic service! Karen M, (Paisley, Scotland) March 2018 

Diane, Good Job! The sculpture arrived intact and unbroken. Thank-you... Mr W (Michigan, USA) January 2018 

Diane, I just wanted to let you know that the bronze sculpture arrived safely. It got here on Wednesday, but I only just managed to open it up as we were away for Thanksgiving and just got back today. You did a great job in packing everything safely, so thanks for that. Mike B. (Pennsylvania, USA) November 2017

Hello John, Glad to say I had my spotted pig delivered today. Very well packed indeed and all is well. Very pleased with it. Sylvia L. (Leeds) November 2017

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!
Allen H. (Cleethorpes), March 2017 
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. James & Lesley C, (Oxted), March 2017
Hi Diane, Many thanks for the tour this afternoon. Very, very enjoyable. And I learnt alot! Looking forward to my next visit!  John T, (Malton), Feb 2017 
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. Amanda S, (Rotherham), Feb 2017 


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)

We are really keen to purchase an Alexander sculpture in the future so please keep us posted!

Just to let you know that the Katy Jade Dobson print 'Poise' arrived at work today. It's beautiful! I'm so pleased I managed to get it! Thanks so much for a great transaction! July 2016, Kerri 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!

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!

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)

March 2014 Neil, (Cheltenham)
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)
We have hung the picture and are both delighted with it! It matches perfectly and is just the right size! Happy Christmas! December 2013 David & Christine, (Leeds)

Hi, Just a quick email to say I received the 'Midnight Sculpture by Joanne Panayi' last Wednesday. It is just fabulous. Thank you sooo much for giving me the opportunity to purchase it. March 2013 Debra, (Worthing) 
Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a great shopping experience this morning. A smashing gallery, we really enjoyed the morning and it was lovely thought the bottle of bubbly which I have to confess is going down well as we sit and review our special print which is already up (sorry could not wait until July!) 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!"
