Basket Heaven.

  Today I made an impromptu visit to my local market for some old fashioned sweeties for my two wards for the day, and, parking in a completely different place than usual I had to pass the rear entrance of a second hand shop. Out of the corner of my eye as I drove past I espied a large basket which aroused my interest and I thought "If that's £15 or less I may buy it."
As I approached I thought it may be a pet carrier of some sort.

I was trembling with excitement. It was very dusty.
And when I opened it my heart started to skip.
Imagine my delight upon inspection to find it was a very large and seemingly very old picnic basket!
Isn't it a delight?

And the price.....a mere £10.

Bring on the picnic weather I say!


  1. Brill! Perfect excuse for a day out in the sunshine, road testing the basket! x

  2. Wow! What a bargain Claire! That is absolutely gorgeous. I always do that too, if its under 20 its mine etc! I can imagine bottles of ginger beer and stacks of sandwiches and cake in that beauty, Well wear! x

  3. I love it, what a bargain. I have a thing with wicker baskets, I just love them, but some are rather expensive, wish I could find a bargain like that. :) xx

  4. What a bargain. It's a beauty too. Bring on the picnic weather.
