When I laid eyes on this beautiful handmade picnic hamper, it was love at first sight. It's sturdy and gorgeous and made by Basketville out of Putney, Vermont before they farmed their business overseas. I believe the wood it's crafted from is oak, and the beauty is in the details: It's got a lion's head pull on the lid and the trim is finished with nails. Nothing glued or stapled here, and good ole American craftsmanship is on display!

You could stuff this full of goodies and surprise your sweetie with a fun roadtrip, or you could use it to store your knitting/sewing supplies. It might even look great in your bathroom, stealthily storing magazines or the extra rolls of TP.

(p.s., the water speckles on the bottom and side in the last two pics are not permanent and were from the dewy grass!)

Overall, the basket measures approximately 17½" wide, 9" tall and 11½" deep at its widest points.

International Buyers,
I would love to ship awesome vintage goods on over to you! Prior to purchase, however, you need to contact me for shipping rates to your region. I can then customize the shipping portion of this listing especially for you.

Shipping prices quoted are just my best guesstimates based on an item's size, shape and weight. I'd be happy to provide you with an exact quote based on your region; just convo me with a city or zip code and I'll get back to you as quickly as possible then adjust the shipping rate for you if applicable. Thanks!
