Thief? You Decide.
Bought an end table for $450. Since I live out of state, arranged for my brother to pick it up, explaining he would deliver it to me in a few months when he came for a visit. When my brother picked it up, was told he had two weeks to return it.
When my brother came for a visit several months later, not only was the table a different style, one of the two vertical posts in the front was a different color than the rest of the table (stained black vs. natural teak).
IMHO, they unloaded a table the couldn't have sold at the store knowing I had no recourse. Again you decide, the facts of the incident are exactly as stated.
Steals From ARTISTS – Larry Collins, the owner of City Buddha has knowingly and repeatedly stolen designs from artists and reproduced them in Bali without permission or payment to the original artists.
If you shop there, you are contributing to this pretty reprehensible behavior. You can go to the tikicentral site and search under bogus pendants for the full story.
Your local headquarters for Asian handcrafts and exotic knickknacks. – The Skinny
Inspired by owner Larry Collins' love of Far East street markets, City Buddha offers a large selection of bronzes, boxes, baskets, mirrors, furniture and artifacts mostly imported from Southeast Asia. Collins and his friends stock the store personally, returning from their frequent travels with masks, scents, Buddhist and Hindu deities (well, replicas of them), kites, pyramid cabinets, folk-sculpted monkeys and--best of all--exquisite movie posters (bigger than your living-room rug) of both Hollywood exports and Asian pictures.
The original, larger and better City Buddha location is right next door to a funky decorative gallery called Art Attack and across the street from John T. Zubal's excellent used bookstore. The Eastern Religion Big Wigs must be looking over the store fondly, as City Buddha now has a second location in Lakewood's Madison Village district.
