Ghanaian Baskets

I was at the Culver City Farmers market last week and there was a Ghanian vendor with these beautiful baskets for sale. Lightweight, colorful and versatile, African baskets are such a perfect storage solution for the home.

African Baskets
Great for storing (hiding) kids toys in the living room, magazines in the bathroom, fruit, bread, a place to toss your keys or mail into when you get home–or to be hung on the wall in gallery style–there are endless possibilities, really. Which are your favorites?? I’m gravitating towards those last laundry baskets–so modern and geometric. Would be a fun thing to learn how to make, yes?

    He’s at the Ojai farmer’s market every weekend too. My sister contemplated a laundry basket but passed, then later at lunch she regretted not buying it, and then he pulls up in his van stuffed with baskets, and while he was in line for a smoothie she asked to buy it. He’s so sweet, and the hats are beautiful too!

    I’d love one of the large geometric ones for a big indoor plant.

  3. They must be identical, taken as part of the past 6 many years be on color providing some one going to be the chock – full face, front get to see showing all over the an all in one white background.

  4. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on
    sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read
    articles from other writers and practice something from other web sites.

  5. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
