Japanese Bamboo Garden Brooms
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:27:24 AM »
 Hida tools seems to be the only place that I have been able to find these type of brooms.
They are great and cost only about $10-but the shipping cost is very high and  they will only ship 1 broom per box.
Thanks Joy

Joy, there is a craftsperson in this area that makes them, but they are likely more expensive than Hida plus shipping.

Hi Don
Thanks for the info. I did find how to make a bamboo broom on The JGO website. It would be fun or interesting to try to make some- just don't know if I would have the time.
If you have any contact info for this person in your area that makes brooms I wouldn't mind trying to contact him.
Whenever you have a chance. Thanks Joy
