I wanted to order pictures and was pushed to order the canvases which I said no to and then I ended up having to take them and have nowhere to put them or anything to do with them had no way to really carry them home so they got left in the room not very happy that I had to pay for something that I didn’t ask for or want and they just put on my bill
