Yes, most of the dharma items I have are from Tibetan Spirit. It is a great company that really cares for its customers. Every purchase I have gotten has had a thank you letter along with it. Also they have a facebook page and every now and then they just give stuff away, for free! I recommend it 150%.

This is my favorite  :)  
The prices are very reasonable and the items are good quality.  Excellent customer service, too.
I strongly recommend!

Best,
Laura

For those in the UK/Europe I can recommend

for rupas, thangkas and other ritual objects.


He sources them from Nepal himself, so expect a few weeks delay at certain times of the year.


Just having a look actually there are some very beautiful items there have you bought from there yourself ?  :pray:


Yes, I've bought a rupa for myself and a thangka as a Dharma gift from students to our Guru.

I'm in the process of buying another rupa.

Excellent!  If you don't mind my asking what did you order and how long did it take for your stuff to arrive.

And per your previous post about TibetanSpirit, I' placed several orders with them over the years.  I find their pricing to be very good and their service flawless.

I recently ordered  the book "Taking the Bodhisattva Vow by Bokar Rinpoche from the Namse Bangdzo bookstore.  It usually takes 4 days for orders from them to arive and this order came in 5.  It also came damaged.  It looks like the original packaging and the contents got a little chewed up in a post office somewhere.  The books was damaged, but not unreadable.  Just the same it was still damaged and not worth the money I paid for it.

I contacted the bookstore to find about about how to return hte book for a replacement.  They said they'd replace the book and I could keep the damaged copy.  I'm waiting on the replacement and reading the damaged copy.  Seeing as they have been so helpful I'm thinking that when the replacement copy of the book arrives, I'll donate it to a Dharma Center library.

Anyway, if anyone wants to buy a book or two, Namse Bangdzo has been my first choice for a while now.

Not long ago I placed an order with a company called Zambala.  I first encountered these folks at a New Age trade show.

My order included a couple polyresin Tormas (small peaceful flower and food tormas), an incense stupa and a couple other items.

Zambala has some interesting and hard-to-find products.  They can be on the expensive.

But back to my order.  Everything arrive ion good shape and order.  I was very satisfied with the purchase and service.

I don't have much advice if you are looking for items.  However, the Order of Interbeing, Plum village, and the Florida Communityof Mindfullness have many Dharma talks and other learning resources online.  You may find these more instumental to practice than "items."

I've been buying things on ebay lately.  This is one store that I find useful for particular kinds of incense (not all their merchandise is of use obviously but they do have some good things at a very good price):

I've dabbled in incense-making and have bought raw materials from these folks.  Their "Old Sandalwood" powder is actually (I believe) Mysore sandalwood and is incredibly fragrant stuff.  It makes a good incense all by itself if applied on charcoal (it won't burn by itself.  For those who have never tried out Alloeswood, these folks have a decent selection and fair pricing (the Vietnamese Alloeswood is the best!
