Basket Case :: House of Talents

May 22, 2012

I’ve been a bit bike-obsessed lately–partially because we’re knee deep into National Bike Month and partially because I just bought a new bike.  Well, ya’ll, I have a new obsession to add to the list.  I fell head over heals in love with the baskets from House of Talents and ended up ordering two after a painstakingly long comparison of all their lovely one of kind baskets (Since they’re one of kind, the inventory is CONSTANTLY being updated…it almost seems like every couple minutes. This made the choosing re-eeeeaaally difficult).

I ordered the baskets on Saturday and they arrived on Monday–I’m not even kidding! And that was with the standard shipping. Color me impressed. I bought the blue/green basket as a Mother’s day gift so it will be traveling with me up to Iowa when I visit for a family wedding (the gift’s a little late but I’m pretty pumped to give it to her!)

I love how sturdy these little baskets are and the leather straps are super easy to fit to my handle bars. As a bonus, the baskets are hand-woven by individuals in Ghana and each includes the name of the person who made it as well as a personalized note thanking you for your purchase. How cool is that? (Ok, I’m done sounding like an infomercial now).

I’m going to wait out the heat a little then I may just ride on over to the library : )

Happy Tuesday!
