I'm not sure what I have more of, baskets or plants, but I am definitely heading into basket addiction territory.

I've said it here before that I have rarely seen a basket that I don't love. 

 thrifted this basket a couple of weeks ago

I have been wanting a basket for my narrow coffee table, but had not come across one and wanted to get one at a thrifty price. 

Yesterday was my lucky day. It was of course half off day at the thrift store, and as I roamed the aisles, there it was.

Not only was it the perfect size, it still had its tags on. A brand new Smith and Hawken handwoven basket. This girl's price? $2.50.

I guess it beat my last basket purchase, which I showed you last week, but I'm not averse to showing it again.

And then there was the picnic basket.

I don't think I've shown you this vintage basket.

It's sitting on my newly redecorated plate rack.

Come back next time and I'll show you the redo. 


  1. Laura, I love baskets and trays. They help me when it come to cleaning. You did get a fabulous deal. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. Good Morning Laura. What is it about baskets?!!! I love them too. They bring such fun and texture to just about anything. You got a great deal. Have a great week.

  3. I love spreading baskets about my apartment. Such lovely texture it brings to your home. Love yours and what a great buy on that last one!

  4. You must have a great thrift store. Not that kind of good selection where I live!

  5. I have the same! I can see several from where I'm sitting and I love them all. Nice to find the perfect shape for a table or shelf! Enjoy!

  6. Ooh, I love your baskets. I get mine at the thrift store too; I can't believe how much they cost new!
