The wholesale order arrived yesterday. I'm writing to say thank you. I LOVE the baskets. The Zulu large flared bowl is breathtaking. I'm proud to carry the baskets and appreciate your selectivity. Also, I like the information sheets. They answer nearly every question. Thank you again for sending such beautiful baskets in the wholesale order!
