    never liked the Sheesham's personally, always been an Ayo fan myself, yeah they're more expensive but better build quality IMO... i'm gonna save up to make my own from scratch... hopefully i'll have another by the end of next month...

    edit: i'm thinking my next one will have 2 holes? maybe 3? still can't decide...

    I got an antique ceramic finger box that my great-granddad found in the trenches during the 1st World War. It used to keep them entertained for hours. Anyone know how much it could be worth?

    a pretty penny, a shiny button and the promise of a kiss

    but seriously ceramic ones from that era are like gold dust, very collectable, resale price should reflect that
