              The design on these coasters is great. They're classy looking and bring back some fond memories of New Orleans. They would look great sitting on an end table in the living room or at a fancy bar.

                  These are just cool coasters.
                  Chicago is a cool city.
                  You use the coasters and it either says "I love the city I live in" or "I used to live in Chicago. Go ahead, ask me about the city of broad shoulders. Do it. I know you wanna"

                  Thats all I got.
                  Great product.

                        Beautifully crafted coasters that make a great gift for that hard to buy for person in your life. I bought my father coasters of their winter home city and glasses from this same site of their summer home city. He really enjoyed this present snd the quality of the items was first rate.

                          These coasters are beautiful and simple and perfect for anyone who loves either their city or maps or both! It's a fun way to have your favorite cities in your home with you. They hold up well under use, although may become slightly water stained, as wood is apt to do, after lots of use. This doesn't really detract from their appearance, though, just a heads up. I've gotten so many complements on my own set and have now started giving them as well=received gifts!
