Thanks Rachel. It’s always such a pleasure to get your prompt reply to my PO’s. You don’t know what I go through with other companies…. Your great service is one of the reasons I stick with Gum Tree.”


Alissa, thank you so much for the update and for making my job easier.”

—Cynthia, Michael Nicolas Designs, Inc.

Fabulous! You never disappoint! The goods we order are always in stock, with very few rare exceptions, and shipped quickly. Rachel is so professional and responds to my emails in a very timely manner. It is such pleasure doing business with Gum Tree Fabrics. Not to mention, with our wonderful sales rep, Sandy Cathcart!”
