I have a need for several pots come spring, of various sizes. For the last couple of years I have driven to Conyers, GA, where there is a huge selection 17 minutes driving from all three grandchildren. My wife has never complained, so long as I drop her off first.

Now, due to events that source may not be possible. Is there a decent source of bonsai pots that can be ordered online for delivery in the US? If I post a picture here I don't want people to think the pot is awful, but I can stand no comments on how great the pot is.

I guess most of the American potters sell online, at least the most well known.
Take a look:

For some reason I never think to look on the empire.

Thanks. Lots of research here, but I needed something to do.

Actually, I’d extend the question to European potters too.
I did start some research from here on the Empire website, but I’m still having a hard time finding good potters with a decent online shop.

Last purchase was from www.holvilabonsaipot.com/ and am absolutely pleased with the quality, but always looking for more...

I didn't punctuate quite accurately. I meant for delivery and in the US to go together, so I don't care where they come from so long as they land on my porch.

I would guess shipping from Europe would be expensive. I would be in favor of travel Europe or Brazil. Or most anywhere. In the current situation.....

Yah I think I got what you meant but the point is more or less the same: in the end, more than the shipping it’s import taxes adding to the bill.
Otherwise I’d happily go with yukimono.com, for example...

I just looked at yukimono. They said shipments to the US are delayed many weeks right now and in fact nothing has shipped since April 23, due to covid. Sigh.

Maybe I'll look for just north American but I guess it would be the same for Canada.

I am ready to live in boring, unexciting times.
