Artisans of Bali by

Another year and always think it a good idea to offer you a summary of particular stores, showrooms & factories that have become reliable favorites. So to recap, here are a handful of popular Artisans that continue to do a sterling job producing handcrafted product - from furniture, furnishings & unique gifts, to a fine piece of soap & beeswax candles, fresh & exciting ceramic-ware, lighting ideas to glassware, to a journal that is crafted from re-cycled paper product. Which all means that you don’t have to take a trip off the island to shop nowadays, it’s all right here at our doorstep! Shop direct at the following companies or they will point you in the direction to some selected retail stores.

Dear Sir, In the last edition I wrote about my friend and his problem with the ATM on Jl. Kartika Plaza. As a follow up I want to mention that the Indonesian bank he had his card from did refund all his lost money. Good on the bank which had to write off the loss to the ATM scam thief. Too bad they don’t have an ATM card condom: use it but no problems afterward! Great reading your paper. Lewis, Sanur Post, e-mail, fax or bring in your letters.
