These same exact items are on DTH, and they are def not less money from them. The tea table I'm looking at DTH wants anywhere from 20-35 dollars more than I've seen elsewhere for the same exact design. The teaware is a few bucks more per piece from DTH as well. I originally was going to order these items from DTH actually, before I started looking around.
Well, it is entirely up to you what you want to buy. I just have difficulties to understand why spending money on ugly mass produced low quality ware when for the same amount of money, or not much more, you can get much nicer things.
Why for example spend lots money money on these tea tables when you can buy for less money a more traditional and functional set up of tea boat and plate from Qing dynasty porcelain ware? Why buy such cheapo gaiwan when you can get OK entry level Yixing pots for 50 to 100 US$?
