Since most thrift stores benefit community charities I love shopping there. The next thrift store we visited benefits Hospice and they were having a twenty five percent sale. This lidded basket with handle was only seventy five cents. It looks hand woven and is sturdy yet open. Wonder what would be carried in this basket? Perhaps a vegetable carried in from the garden? The basket portion is one foot tall. What do you think? The shape of this basket also inspires me to make a similar shape in clay.
