I have purchased a teapot from https://www.sazentea.com

Their customer service, response time, & shipping time is excellent! Plus I feel their prices are very fair for their teaware.

I've gotten a lot of fine pieces from Magokorodo's eBay store, wares by Yamane Seigan, Yoshi 3rd Toichi (Kazuwa-ware), Toshiyuki Suzuki, Tetsuaki Nakao, and others.

Another vendor I have ordered pieces from sells used pieces from estate sales: I discovered Koedo on etsy.

Thanks for posting about those sellers @debunix! I did not know about them.

tokoname.or.jp also has an eBay storefront that is regularly updated. I’ve ordered 2 pots from their eBay store. They shipped next day and were very well packed.

Thanks to everyone for these postings, and thank you, @Victoria for starting the thread. There were a few vendors I didn't yet know about. I purchased my first kyusu from https://www.hibiki-an.com/. I followed up with a purchase of porcelain cups, a sami scooping spoon, and a yuzamashi. The service is great. The owner ships quickly and has always been responsive to my questions.

Forgot one

Katsuragi on Ebay, a seller of vintage & antique teawares.

I got this lovely piece from that shop:

It's remarkably delicate with very thin walls, and yet feels sturdy. Oilspot glaze and nuka trim on the rim. It's a fine chawan for matcha or bowl for berries in summer.
