Last week when I visited Solabee and Salvage Works I strolled a little further down the street and wandered into the new location for Bamboo Craftsman.
Even though their old location was (sort of) in my neighborhood I'd never been inside, just peered in after hours. I have enjoyed their fun colorful booth at the Yard Garden & Patio show, so that gave me an idea what I might discover in this huge, former parking lot.
Wait, before we go any further you must bring up Earl Grant singing House of Bamboo and listen to it while you walk through with me, trust me, do it!
I want this!!!
Lordy, that's some tall bamboo.
If we had the space I'd love a little hut like this in the back garden.
Especially if we could sleep out there on warm nights.
Isn't this place fun?
Because I knew Alan would be upset if I completely ignored the bamboo which was for sale I took this photo. I can tell you the one on the right was $59 and on the left $79.
And here's what they can tell you, about the one on the left.
Yes I should have climbed up there, I have no idea why I didn't.
When I first arrived someone was hard at work scrubbing clean the large corrugated panels. Not a fun job but necessary.
I ducked inside for a quick look around. Pretty much anything and everything you could need, bamboo-wise I mean.
So glad I stopped in...
Ignore the address if you're local and looking to visit, that's the old location. They're now at 2104 N Willis Blvd.
