Miniature Baskets

DSCN8846Last week, to get out of town for a few minutes, I went to the Oppelo flea market. For a big building to have so much stuff, I couldn’t find anything,  but some miniature baskets. Baskets fascinate me. I worked at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO, in 1969 and 1970 in the broom and basket shop. I collect white oak split baskets of all sizes and kinds.. I have lots of baskets. But, the miniature ones are so hard to find and make. I found 5 miniature baskets. They weren’t white oak, but they were made in China and really small and cute.  I might make pin cushions out of them.
