Fruit Picking Pack

kauffman pack fuit picking basket

The Kauf­mann Mer­can­tile Store is offering this rat­tan bas­ket that is perfect for fruit and vegetable picking as well as farmers market visiting.  Not only is it handy but it is a beautiful earthy object (like all the rest of the great stuff that the Kaufmann store offers).   I am also really enjoying their blog, where they recently shared some interesting history about (similar) Adirondack pack baskets — Did you know that the most famous basket maker is woman named Dat-so-la-lee (1829-1925), aka Louisa Keyser, of the Washoe tribe in Nevada.  A basket made by Dat So La Lee has fetched as much as $25,000 at auction.  This one isn’t cheap ( a little over a hundred dollars) but I think it is still very nice…..

    I would be tempted to hang that from a door or a wall and fill it with dried lavender and gather my tomatoes in a shopping bag. It’s just so pretty.
