Review of Artistic Boutique

I recently purchased a tablecloth from Artistic Boutique in Aruba. Unfortunately, I picked out the wrong size for my table at home, and upon discovering my error when I returned to the US, I contacted the store. They were very helpful in arranging for a return, and a replacement with the size I needed. I encountered no problems with the transaction.

We go to Aruba every year and visit the Artistic Boutique usually each year. In August, I bought a tablecloth and when I got back to the US, found that I purchased a size that was WAY to big - totally my fault. I contacted them and they were GREAT at sending me a new one just like the one I bought and because it was smaller, to make up the difference, they sent me a table runner as well. Padma was GREAT to deal with and it was all handled through e-mail and was done VERY quickly. This is a wonderful shop and I always look forward to going there!

I purchased a ring and a pair of earrings from Artistic in November o
f 2012. It was costume jewelry and was rose gold and the stones were CZ's. The two pieces were $130.00 although I did pay less than that. I wore the jewelry ONCE and it tarnished so badly that the rose gold color came right off and left my fingers black. We were on a cruise and had left the country so I could not return them. I emailed them to make them aware of what happened and I never received any kind of response. I have never heard of any kind of reputable company not responding to such an email. I will never shop there and would never recommend them to anyone else.

Dear Mrs. Sue Plumer,

You have not related the truth of the purchase of jewelry you made at Artistic. Goods were worth $ 130.00 you paid $ 67.00.

Your email of December 12th WAS replied on December 24th, 2012 copy's enclosed with a proposal for making up the loss.

Sorry you had to resort to untruth on the Trip Advisor website, we are certainly going to report to the site and also to the cruise company. So you can not tarnish our name of 48 years.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,


Mrs. Padma Mahtani
Artistic Boutique/Aruba

I have know Artistic many years and their staff and owners are always very helpful. They have even repair items after 5 years at small cost. I always buy there when I visit the island.
