I bought them myself... because Keith would not personally go out and buy me another basket because he thinks I have lost my mind. I don't own a million of them, but plenty and I put every single one to good use.
But I can't help myself... I see a basket and its hard to resist.
I have baskets from Longaberger all they way down to some deal I bought on a Mexican beach from what looked like a homeless guy and everything inbetween.
So to add to my latest collection-
The metal one I believe is antique and handmade. I keep it in the bathroom to hold toilet paper. The other is for sure handmade with African grass. You wet it to shape it properly and if you ever want to reshape and smoosh so you can pack it, you just wet it again. I picture using it for gardening or shopping at the farmer's market.
I love buying my own gifts!
