Where can you buy an expensive dream catcher?

Why would you want to waste your money, just make one. Its not like they really work anyway. Buy a butterfly net and hang yourself with it in your dreams. That may all be true but history is full of instances where this kind of thinking turned out to be false. Dr. Semmelweis (Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis July 1, 1818 - August 13, 1865) was run out of the medical profession for suggesting that doctors should wash their hands for example. There are some true artists making dream catchers. I personally could not do anything nearly as well. In addition native American artists have access to legally and sustainably harvested materials that I do not such as naturally shed antlers, naturally shed eagle feathers and similar.
