THE SET THAT STARTED IT ALL…

A CHarli Joker – or as she puts it, “Simply the Best!”photo 1

It wasn’t long after I had learned how to play Mah Jongg that I began lusting after a vintage set. I did some research and found the website of the incomparable and incredible CHarli. We started emailing back and forth and CHarli (aka Carol Ann Harper) was amazing – so patient and kind as she advised me on which sets would be best for me. ¬†We finally settled on a gorgeous Royal Depth Control set which, to this day, is my favorite set to bring out for our Mah Jongg Wednesday’s game. Because this was my first vintage set, it will always be my sentimental favorite. CHarli included beautiful Jokers (her design, of course!) and a lovely note thanking me for my purchase, or should I say, adoption, of this set. The set is in perfect condition which is true with everything that CHarli sells. I love, love, love playing Mah Jongg with this gorgeous set and always think of CHarli fondly every time it comes out.
