Arts & Craft

This photo was taken at The American Folk Festival a couple weeks ago. The gentleman in the photo was displaying some of his craft works -- this one is a collapsible wooden basket.

So would you be interested in buying something like this?

And those baskets have a name, too, don't they. There is a guy out here that makes them! Lovely but too expensive.

Not for me but very clever idea

I've seen these, but never bought one. I am currently trying to find an old French collapsable salad basket...

I'll take the one on the left if he will include the Champagne.

He does beautiful work! I love the wine bottle gift basket idea! I'd buy one or two!

I have purchased one each year that I've gone for my mom as she loves them. It's truly amazing that they are made from one solid piece of wood. He is great to chat with on all his crafts.

My mum has a round one like these. She keeps the fruit in it on the kitchen table!

I've often seen these wooden baskets but I've never been tempted to buy one, but they are really very intricate.
