Spindle Flag Holder with Five Flags
Quality was a little disappointing.
It is a very cute item. But ....when I unpacked it, the top section had become unglued. I had to chisel off the old glue and glue it back together. The paint job was a little sloppy. The holes on the top for the flags were drilled unevenly, and some of them were too small for the flag sticks. I had to enlarge some of them slightly. I think it is too tall to use as a centerpiece at a small table. It would be awkward looking through the flags to see the person sitting opposite. It would work on a large table, on a buffet table, or as a side decoration.

Cute decoration but POOR quality
Love this decoration but when I opened the box the bottom was detached from the top. They need to use better adhesive. This wasn't a real issue for me as I just glued the 2 pieces back together. Other than having to glue it back together I think it makes a great center piece!

Such a disappointment
I was very disappointed with this product. I orderded 2 -- one was broken. There were places where the paint was rubbed off. The red and white stripes on the base were more like pink and white stripes. The blue portion that is glued to the red (pink) and white stripes was off to the side -- neither one of them were put together correctly. Because I need them for a party I am having this weekend, i didn't have time to send back so I have to repaint them myself -- and glue the broken one back together. If i had seen this product in a store, i wouldn't have paid more than $3 for one -- knowing all the work I had to put into it myself. Definitely not worth the $13 a piece I had to pay for it. Also, the flags were VERY cheap. They were just small flags stapled to a dowel rod. I had to go out and buy new flags as well because the flags made it look even cheaper. VERY disappointed to say the least.

I was quite disappointed when it arrived, because it was broken. The box it was in had a huge dent and the cardboard exterior had been torn as well. This box was inside the shipping box which was fine on the outside and had not been damaged in shipping. I would have called the company to send it back but need it for an event May 1st, 2010. The item when taken from the original box, was in two separate pieces and the top portion had spots where the red paint had rubbed off and the bottom had blue paint rubbed off to the pressed wood underneath. Due to the time issue involved, I elected to glue it together myself, and try to touch up the paint where needed. Doubtful the paint will be a perfect match. Doesn't look as good as it should for being brand new. If it had come in not broken, I would have rated it a 4 star instead only because the striped paint job was not uniform; the part attached to the base was off-centered and the flags were weakly attached . It is a nice size center piece and is noticeable from a distance. Like the idea of it, but they could take a little more pride in their workmanship and inspecting their packages before shipping.
