which basket?




I have got quite a growing amount of vintage junk stuffed into every crevice of our flat. I also get blamed that even though I have a lot of nice vintage things, I never use them, (harsh words I feel).
So, this morning, after being accused that my daily bag I use is ugly, I decided to route through my collection of summery baskets and pick one out to mend and use.


I like these Welsh tapestry purses, but which one? I like them all, this is one of my major problems!


I decided to go for this combination today, I found them all in the market, but the Gladstone style basket I found at Kempton Park market for £12 so its the most expensive of the bunch. I think it might be from 1920s or 30s, I had to mend the handle, but now its ready to use...my new smart look!
