efore I moved to Vancouver, I lived in Ontario where I ran an Interior Design business as well as a retail store. The store was, well, it was great. I'm just gonna come right out and say it. I loved everything about it. We carried furniture, lighting, kitchenware and the greatest array of artisan work from artists across Canada.
It was during my search for these outstanding and unique pieces that I came across the Buddha Bowl. Colourful, stylish and practical. What's not to love? I was smitten so I bought bowls. Lots and lots of bowls. And I sold bowls. Lots and lots of bowls. On weeks when we weren't busy I would joke with the staff that I would next time around open a Buddha Bowl store. They sold no matter how slow the rest of the business was.
When we made the decision to move I stocked up on those bowls as though we were a family of 15. In retrospect it probably didn't make the most sense to pay to ship these bowls across the country when the bowls themselves are created less than an hour from where I currently live. Ah well. No regrets when it comes to the Buddha.
