  • Packing Bowls for Shipment

    I just sent out some baskets and bowls as Christma presents. When I pack them I put them is a plastic bag. That's right a regular old whilte plasic gargae car liner. The plastic is a natural lubricant that won't wear the finish. Styrofoam and packing can rub the finsh right off a piece during a cross country mailing. I will even place a piece in a plastic bag before gift wrapping it, if it will have a long lourney.

Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

          I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
