I've bought lots of soap dishes in my time, and got sick of all them. So I made my own.
Found this soapstone dish at Vicino, the little homewares shop next to Fratelli Fresh in Danks St, some time ago. Was only about $10, I think. Filled it with some garden rocks, which let the water drain away from the soap to keep it dry.
The only thing I now change is the soap.
