Re: Buying just the KM Base?
I know how you feel. I had one of the odd shaped "teardrop" vases with my KM that broke. Took me three weeks to find a similar replacement. Then I got sent the wrong vase.
All I can offer you is try every vendor you know of. Try google searching up more vendors. Sift through their vase collections, and if you don't find what you're looking for, keep trying. I've noticed that alot of the more popular vendors change their inventory every now and again.
Another thing, are you looking for a "KM" branded vase? Because I'm pretty sure that KM doesn't actually make the vases. They're just your standard bell vase.
