LS: Manzanita driftwood


Today, I went to flower district in Manhattan, I saw they have a lot of nice piece Manzanita in this holiday. The price is between $17-$47, it depends on size.

Is that type of manzanita treated in anyway? Mine doesn't look as smooth. Not sure if I love the look of it. Nice find regardless...

It's smooth, you can come there for check. I think their price is better than eBay ( random driftwood). At least , you can choice it
