Laguna is said to have bought Thorley. Of course one never wants
to have to make this kind of post. I lost two out of three, cut my losses
and bought from Bailey at nearly twice the price. People at clayart are
served by this type of post as well as the plus's. Laguna is taking heat
for this and I suspect reads clayart as a matter of course. I would be if
so many of my customers talked on this forum. It would be just good
business. Ear to the ground kind of thing.
I ordered a number of posts and the local shop called me to show me
how poorly the shipment was packed. Posts in peanuts...90 % were
badly chipped or broken. Next bunch were much better.
I would like to see Laguna give us some kind of thumbs up when we can
expect to buy with better confidence...something like LAGUNA
in only x months returned the Thorley production to its historic levels
of quality excellence... O well, its their business...they know what to do.

In Tulsa where we won't need shelves soon...sidewalk and a mirror!
