Robbie, you are an absolute legend
Although I could buy the same one for $80, I think I'll get the repair done anyway. The gaiwan I want repaired was given to me by a family member (who has no interest in tea, but spent a lot of time finding a gaiwan I would like, which to me is more special than receiving one from a tea friend
I would love to have it repaired this way
a replacement alone wouldn't be the same..
I am so excited! Thanks again! I will post an update here eventually when my wallet allows for the repair haha
