I so looked forward to getting a wind chime set up out on our deck. I love the sound they make and find it to be very relaxing and beautiful.
I finally purchased one yesterday at Lowe's. To my dismay, when I got it home and took it out of the box I found two of the cords holding the copper tubes had already been broken. Of course the label read..."Made In China". What a cheap piece of %$#@! Reading labels is becoming far more important, but it's also becoming more difficult to find things that are truly "Made in America".
After posting this, I'm returning it, getting my money back, and continuing my search for a quality wind chime. Maybe I should just think about making my own or, maybe I should have spent the money when we were in San Diego last August. There was a shop there that had some very cool chimes all hand made by the owner. Expensive, but the quality and sound were definitely worth the money.
