I don't know how and when it started, as long as I can remember I've always loved baskets. They are pretty, decorative, useful; I just love looking at them too. The baskets in the pictures are mostly from thrift stores and yard sales. This is not all of them that I have!
After I found about the CPSIA, I was pretty sad about the whole thing. I am still hoping that law will be amended.
I've decided I can do other things too. One of the things I'm thinking of doing is restoring and refurbishing those baskets and sell them on etsy! I blogged about some baskets that I fixed up way back in September 08.
The whole process is fun for me. Finding a basket is like a treasure hunt. Then thinking of its potential is exhilarating. Selling them is like finding a new home for them.
I know lots of my friends like yard sales, if you see something that I might like, give me a jingle!
