      That’s a very decent price, relative to the US and UK price. It’s a great looking set too 🙂

    This looks amazing! I’ve held off buying sets for a while as I’m moving house and need the money for those pesky expenses that come up. Fingers cross I can snag one if I have anything left over! Thanks to Michael for finding out the price! 🙂

    Absolutely stunning, and I really happy to hear they made it with the Tower Bridge in mind, and very happy about the price.
