Gift Giving Solutions

Are you looking for a one of a kind Christmas Gift? We have the perfect gift! Randolph from the Bronze Look in Princeton, W.Va. sent this:
Bronze Look

311 Mercer St, Princeton, WV
Photo is of Kelsey's carving of WV Black bears on a Frank Workman Vase that she does for us. I came up with the idea of having our black bears walking through the fall foilage. These sell for $950 and we only have three more blanks for a total of 6 being made. I also have her doing buffalos with mesas in the background.

Only a Doc would think $995 is chump change.

Only a 'fool' an anonymous fool
is concern more with cost than quality of item.
Lesson to learn, in all of life - Choose quality, don't shop price.
Bronze Look prices appear to be excellent for the high quality items they are offering.

I see Black bears, but what are those on the red? leaves? More like Bear roaming in the wild?

I'm a Medical Doc with a decade of experience.
Unless one has a trust fund or a generous hubby, one has debt and $995 for a vase would be considered a luxury.
Anonymous is correct.
Hilary, I too would welcome a Randy Rider update.
Also news of Bronze Look events are welcome, plz include prices and link that works.
Thank you again for this blog.
