    Comments about GROW OLD WITH YOU TERRARIUM:

    Arrived just as pictured and described and earlier than predicted. Very well packaged. This was for a coworker who was retiring after 42 years and he and his wife enjoyed gardening. We had the back of the vase engraved as well as the lid around the top with congratulatory type statements. It was a very attractive and unique gift. It did seem small to me although I had noted the dimensions; the detail is quite charming overall.

      Beautiful product. A tiny bit concerned about the health of the moss - seems to have taken a licking in the shipping - but overall a unique and lovely gift.

        This precious little "mossarium" looks exactly as pictured! The little old couple on the bench are adorible beyond words. Can't wait to give it to my husband. The superb packing around the mossarium prevented any breakage or shifting of contents. I am delighted.

          Perfect 50th anniversary gift: chose the "canoodling elderly couple", and my aunt and uncle seemed truly touched. Package arrived very well-protected, not to mention early, and the quality of everything was what I have repeatedly received from Uncommon Goods: perfect.

              The item shipped quicker than I expected arrived quickly and in good shape. It was packaged very well for a fragile item. It was, however, much smaller than I anticipated, given the price.

              They loved it and think it is a cool and unique gift. They also mentioned that everyone goes right over to it when they come in their home. They told me the figurines are a little too small but that they love the piece overall.
