Woven Baskets

IMG_5235

One of my favorite flea market purchases ever is this hand woven market basket, turned magazine basket. I bought it from a man who brings them a long with mountains of beautiful beads (here) straight from Africa. I had way too much fun picking through the beautiful variety of colors, sizes and styles he had to choose from. After almost an hour of indecisiveness, in usual Carina form, I happily chose this classic and clean navy blue striped one. We plan on going back for a few more baskets both for our home and for gifts.

Here are a few options you can find online that are similar to the one I found at the flea market.

Happy shopping!

x, Carina
