Perfect for harvesting my heirlooms!

One beautiful harvesting basket. Well made and perfect for harvesting my heirloom vegetables and berries. Will line the inside with osnaburg to cushion produce. Highly recommend this item for the 18th and early 19th century living historian!

Pennsic Purse for the Missus

I bought this basket for my wife for her to use as a purse at SCA events. she was very fond of it

Beautiful, Surprisingly Lightweight Basket

I just received one of these baskets as a gift for Christmas and it's absolutely gorgeous. It has a lot of character since not all of the reed took the stain the same way and it weighs a lot less than I would normally expect from a basket of this size. The strap is very sturdy and easy to adjust to a comfortable length. I keep chickens and garden in the spring, so this will make my life much easier than carrying a traditional handheld basket. It even came with a calendar that includes a lot of recipes!
