My rating would be 5 stars if not for this: I have been buying these brackets for three years for handrails I craft from driftwood. I love their rustic look and sturdiness. The thing that I am not happy about is that every time I re-order, they have been increased in price. In only three years they have gone from $15.99 to $24.99 *each*! This is not good for me...I have to charge more from my customers to stay afloat. Give us bulk customers a price break!
