Basket Sale


A few weeks ago, in one of my Insta-Friday cell phone photo posts, I showed you a sneak preview of some of the items I had purchased at a basket company's annual warehouse sale.

I have been going for many years now and I have SO many baskets. I would be embarrassed to show you just how many. Yes, I am addicted to baskets. Presumably to help me stay organized, but I have so many that it is an organizational problem in itself.


Of course, I still went to the sale. I just didn’t buy baskets. But, I bought some of their other lovely offerings, like these funky chairs, above.

By the time I had waited in the lengthy line-up, the chairs had been reduced from $20 each to $15 each. The table was the same. The outdoor pillows were $5 each. So, this set amounted to $55. I purchased the round white candleholder on the table at the same sale last year.


I also bought this outdoor candle.


And this utensil holder.



And this pretty green box, which I currently have no use for. I also couldn’t resist the cookie cutters and their charming tin.
Anybody else addicted to baskets?

    1. Thanks Rachael. I was lucky somebody told me about this place, because the sale is only once per year.

  5. I did a blog recently about sweet grass baskets when I bought one right outside of Charleston SC. Love the new table and chairs set! What a steal at that price!

  7. I've been able to keep the basket addiction in line, and I only buy little baskets for toys and kids organisation. But I know I would go gaga over the perfect old picnic basket with tartan lining.

    Your chairs are gorgeous!

    1. Good for you! :) I need to do some more organizing and purging so that I can then figure out what baskets I can actually use! I hope you find that perfect picnic basket. :)
