December 2013 – from a long-standing customer in Australia who has bought a number of things from us in the past few years
I just thought I’d take this timely opportunity to say; Hello, Merry Christmas! Congratulations on the ten Year Anniversary & Thank-you. The few trips I’ve had the good fortune to take to England & London in particular have been great but, the kindness I always received when visiting your establishment has remained a fond memory of my time there. It’s a credit to you & how you do things. I wish you all the best for your future endeavours, may the next ten years be even better. Hope to visit you again soon, (sooner rather then later I hope).
November 2013 – from a repeat customer in the UK who purchased a Minoan snake goddess
Hi Alexandra, Thank you so much for your email. Indeed, the Minoan goddess arrived safely and is absolutely lovely. She is taking pride of place opposite the Nike statue I purchased the other year. As always – it is a pleasure buying from It’s All Greek. Thank you! Best wishes
November 2013 – from a customer in the USA who had been to the shop a year ago, he purchased a Pronomos krater for his partner’s 50th birthday
Elinor, Good morning. Last night was the unveiling. He started unwrapping from the top, and when he uncovered the handles he shouted, “It’s a krater!!!!!!!” In 15 years, I have NEVER gotten that kind of emotional response for any gift I’ve ever given him. He absolutely loves it. The Pronomos vase is absolute perfection. Your website does not give the detail justice. And the packing was extraordinary for such a large piece to make it safely to the U.S. Thank you for helping make my partner’s 50th birthday one for the history books. We will be sure to stop in your shop the next time we’re in London.
November 2013: from a new customer in the UK who ordered a Herakles and Alexander sterling silver pendant
Thank you so much, I received my pendant in the post today. I came across your website online while I was looking for the perfect Xmas present for my boyfriend who is very interested in greek mythology. Couldn’t find much anywhere after a long time searching, then eventually found your website on google and managed to buy what I had been looking for. Thanks again for fantastic service.
November 2013 – from a new customer in the UK who purchased a bronze lookout owl
Yes, thank you it has arrived. It has been wrapped beautifully but it hasn’t been opened yet as it is for my daughter’s 15th birthday next week. It will be the most beautifully wrapped present she receives! With many thanks
November 2013- from a new customer in the USA who purchased a (vast!) wall relief
Elinor and Lauren – Just wanted you to know that the frieze has arrived and, thanks to your packing expertise, it was in perfect condition! I particularly appreciate the care you took in preparing this piece for shipment. My father was well know for doing the same thing and being ribbed about this by the consignees who often had to struggle mightily to unpack the object(s) of their affection! I think my Dad now has to share his pedestal with you guys!
The frieze is terrific incidentally! Best again

Thank you so much for all of your help with my order and mis-order! It was a pleasure talking with you and I am so happy to have found your website. Have a wonderful evening and I look forward to shopping with you, again, soon. (Christmas is coming!)

Hello Elinor, Many thanks for your mail – it was so nice to hear from you.

30th April 2013- from a new customer in the UK who purchased a bronze Athena statue
Dear Jasmine, I only ever come and look around your shop so she is the first piece I own from you (hopefully not the last). I collect pots whenever I visit Greece or Italy, which is sadly infrequently. Probably more information than you need, but I just wanted you to know that she will be well-loved. She’s currently enjoying prominence on the lounge mantle-piece before she joins my pot collection and the masks we picked up honeymooning on Cephalonia (so that I could buy an Odysseus pot from Ithaca) on the bookshelves that contain all my Classical texts. In short, she’s arrived and we’re very happy with her. I am inspired to buy more pieces from your collection in the future! Kind regards and many thanks for your excellent customer service.
30th April- from a repeat customer in the UK who purchased a Minoan snake goddess
Hi Elinor, just a quick note to say that the goddess has arrived safely today – I’m very pleased with her, she is lovely ! Thanks for your speedy (and very protective) packing and dispatching.
29th April-from a repeat customer in the UK who sent this feedback
‘Its All Greek’ is a lovely shop with a wide variety of exquisite pieces to suit every taste and pocket, however the best thing about the shop is the wonderful staff, who not only know and understand the provenance of the pieces but who far exceed the call of duty in their helpfulness and assistance in finding the most appropriate piece for the occasion. I have always enjoyed going into the shop, but recently when making a very important purchase was able to discuss what was most appropriate and to buy a piece that was exactly right. With the help and attention of the staff I was able to make the perfect purchase and as a result, many of my friends have now visited the shop. My thanks to all at ‘It’s All Greek’
27th April- from a repeat customer in the USA who purchased a Corinthian alabastron
It’s always a pleasure to do business with you. The alabastion arrived safely the other day, and has held me captive ever since. It is beautiful, the theme stirs the imagination, and was especially fullfiling because it was a slight venture from the venerable Athenian focus of Greek culture, that proved to be a very satisfying detour.
26th April- from a repeat customer who emailed us after another visit
It’s All Greek has knowledgable and friendly staff selling well made beautiful products of classical origin covering a long and interesting period of history compared with other London organisations and museums, very good value.
23rd April- from a new customer in the UK who purchased a bronze Steatopygous figurine

20th April- from repeat customers in the UK who sent us an email after yet another visit
We have always enjoyed shopping in It’s All Greek. The staff are amazing, very welcoming and kind with a great sense of humour. Everything we have bought from your shop has been of great quality, we have bought plaques and figures etc, the postal service is excellent too, items packed with great care. We have become very fond of everything we have bought from the shop and they have become a talking point with visitors. Every time we are in London we try to come and look and have always bought something, whether small or large because we love it a,so It’s All Greek is one of only a few shops in London which we enjoy returning to time and time again. We hope it will be there for a long time to come because we haven’t finished the wall we are trying to cover with lovely things from It’s All Greek.
26th March- from a new customer in the UK who bought a baby bronze owl

26th February- from a new customer in the USA who bought a red-figure plate: Hades and Persephone
Good Afternoon Nicola, Thank you for checking up! the plate arrived in perfect condition and appeared exactly how i expected i couldn’t be happier, It’s All Greek has done a magnificent job on creating replicas of Ancient Greek art and i’ll be purchasing another item soon it’s great doing business with you and hope all is well!
26th February- from a repeat customer in the USA who bought a Corinthian oinochoe with panthers and siren
The vase arrived in perfect condition due to your expert packing. It is a marvelous addition to the several other pieces I have purchased in your store during visits to London over the last few years. It’s nice to know I can now purchase such lovely works from you without having to travel over the sea, not that I will stop traveling to London or visiting you in person. Who could resist the charms of such an amazing place!
9th February- from a new customer in the UK who bought a pair of ‘Alexander the Great’ cufflinks
Dear Elinor, Just a quick note to say the Alexander cufflinks have arrived safe and sound. They are absolutely fantastic, and look even better than in the pictures – thank you! As my undergrad dissertation was on the successors’ coinage, I will be giving lengthy lectures to anyone who asks about them, whether they like it or not!
6th February- from a new customer in the UK who bought a bust of Leonidas
Leonidas arrived in perfect condition and very speedily. I have unwrapped him and he is absolutely perfect, sometimes shopping in the Internet is risky as the product you receive is not half as good as you expect, however I have to say the statue exceeded my expectations and is totally beautiful and truly a piece of art. I am thrilled. I can not wait for my husbands 40th birthday next month to see if he loves it as much as I do. I am so impressed with your company and the customer service you have provided me, so rare in this day and age If I find myself in the market for anything else Greek, you will be my absolute first port of call Many thanks
1st February- from a new customer in Ireland who bought a bronze bust of Apollo
I had such a lovely time visiting your shop, your staff are lovely, your website fantastic and you are obviously so passionate about what you do!
29th January- from a new customer in Italy who bought a selection of Minoan tiles: Ibex and twin swallows
Dear Jasmine, as an archaeologist, specialist in Minoan Civilization, I already knew “It’s all Greek” as one of the best shops in high-quality reproductions of ancient Greek (and Minoan) art. After buying for the first time from the store, I can confirm that it is true. The online shop works perfectly, but, at the same time, i look forward to visiting the shop in person as soon as possible.
17th January- from a repeat customer in the UK who bought a Zeus/Poseidon bust
Yes the figure has arrived in excellent condition and as described. It was a gift for my husbands birthday yesterday and he was highly delighted.As a new customer, can I just comment on the excellent customer service you’ve provided which is a breath of fresh air these days. The hand written postcard in the storage box was a lovely personal touch.
We found your website from an advertisement in a magazine (sorry I can’t remember which one) and will certainly be coming back!
15th January- from a new customer in the USA who bought a gold labrys pendant
It is beautiful. thank you so much. I had a beautiful one like this, but larger, wore it for many years and lost it…I was so devastated…..never ever found again a sold gold labrys hanging blade down like this one. I love it…… I wish you made one BIGGER. But I’m very happy with this one…….The design lines on it make it very attractive. I love it.
14th January- from a repeat customer in the UK who bought a Latin inscription
It has [arrived], and it is lovely. Apologies for nor not letting you know of it’s safe arrival. I have to say that I think you personalise the impersonal internet purchase wonderfully with the card in the package!
10th January- from a new customer in the UK who bought a small bronze helmet
I found [the website] very easy thank you, and I already have my package, I won’t see it as of tomorrow, but I’m really excited. I was really interested to read in your education that Alexander and Troy used your products as props. This present is for my dear friend who is in love with greek mythology and especially the film Alexander, so I can’t wait to tell him this, I really hope he likes it.
Thank you so much!
