The kettles, bowls, and silverware here aren't cheap, though there are a few lower-priced items in the mix, including Japanese fabrics that can be used for napkins or placemats. This is the kind of store to check when you're looking for something substantial and unique that will last, whether for yourself or for a gift.
In addition to its two brick and mortar stores, Tortoise has an online shop. They ship nationally (not internationally) and shipping charges are calculated in the checkout process.
