I bought my bowl at the White Rock Market in the summer and while it's too pretty to put anything in, it sits dutifully on my ottoman, looking pretty. I have had so many compliments on it, so much so, I wanted to buy two for friends but they were sold out. I gave my contact details for when they were back in stock and was notified when they were in. Dealing with Michael was professional, fast & efficient, he was very proactive keeping me informed along the delivery process. A unique gift that I would highly recommend. Thank you Turning The Tides.
