That is an excellent question. Because personally, it's probably a better idea to buy one in person from an actual physical store. With that being said, not many stores actually sell crystal or Tibetan singing bowls, which is why a lot of folks turn to the internet. But the world wide web isn't really all that bad. Buying online has come a long way since the 1990s when most people were terrified by the idea of entering credit card information on a web page (I was one of them). But I don't need to tell you that everything's secure nowadays are our website specifically is secured by one of the largest eCommerce software companies in the world (BigCommerce) along with accepting payments via two of the most reputable online payment gateways that ever existed (PayPal and Stripe). So worry not, my friend!!
The main reason to buy in store is so you can actually hold the bowl and make it "sing" yourself. You can really study the machine etchings in the ornate examples as well as investigate all the hand-made hammer marks on the Tibetan singing bowls. You can also get all (or most) of your questions answered by a store associate. If the bowl turns out to be a dud after a few weeks of owning it you can usually return it. There are just lots of perks to buying in an actual store. But we really do our best bring all that to our website as well.
To make up for not being able to see/hear/hold the bowl in person, we try to do everything we can to explain the experience to you digitally. Here's a list of ways we recreate the in-store experience in an online setting:
