I could not be happier with the basket I received the customer service provided. Honestly, The best experience I've ever had with Etsy! I cannot say enough positive things to do justice to this phenomenal basket. My dog and I will be enjoying it for many years to come.

I ordered four of these baskets from Cathy to give as Christmas gifts. They were received promptly and are so gorgeous! The liners are beautifully crafted and every one is unique. I cannot wait to give these baskets as gifts!

About

Basket Weaver Gone Wild!!

I'm so lucky to be a stay at home mom and wife, especially in these hard times. I don't take anything for granted. I started weaving baskets in my early 20's on Cape Cod where I grew up in the Summers of my youth, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to try a class with her. I was hooked, it was so relaxing and I liked how the reed became flexible when it was wet, I could mold and shape it in so many ways!
I have always admired Nantucket Baskets seeing that Nantucket is off the coast of Cape Cod. But they were so expensive and I couldn't afford an authentic one. I thought someday I would create my own basket purse and make it affordable. As our girls grew older I began to work on a method of weaving and a design. I wanted to make something sturdy and easy to handle so I test and test and test! I have many many basket purses of my own. I began getting so many questions and compliments on my purses that I figured I really needed to give it a try. My beautiful family has been so supportive and I really love what I do!!

Welcome! I hope you enjoy my basket purses and other handwoven items! I love to use all types of media on my baskets so most will be one of a kind unless I find a fashion trend that is hot and would look good with basket reed. Also if you see one and would like me to make more I can do that. Just keep in mind that if I make more than one of a certain style they will be slightly different due to basket reed being a natural material. color varies. I really strive to have great communication with my clients so if you ever have any questions or concerns please contact me, my shop goes everywhere with me!

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDER POLICIES AND IMPORTANT CUSTOM INFO: Communication is very important to complete a custom order. It is YOUR responsibility to check your email for conversations, the Etsy conversations go to your Etsy convo inbox and your email so they really can't be missed. If I don't get responses to my emails in regards to your custom order in a timely manner your order will be put on hold therefore pushing your deadline further out. Most orders will take between 2-3 weeks to complete with good communication. I reserve the right to cancel any orders due to lack of communication. If money is exchanged it will be refunded after a week of no communication. If you are in the military or have a situation where you may not be able to be contacted please let me know. If I get sick or have a family emergency I will let you know immediately but again you are responsible for checking your mail. It doesn't happen very often but you never know.
WOOD AND REED ARE NATURAL FIBERS. STAINING A BASKET BRINGS OUT THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE FIBERS AND ARE NOT CONSIDERED FLAWS.
How an order for custom baskets proceeds - I will ask you about your color and design preferences, be as specific as possible. When I shop for fabric I use the internet and several fabrics shops near me. I will send you several fabric combos (pictures) so you can choose which best fits what you are looking for. If you have a fabric in mind don't be shy about asking, many times I can get it on the internet or locally. If I can get your specific fabric make sure to let me know what colors within that specific fabric you would like to use. For example if you like a Vera Bradley or Lily Pulitzer fabric that has certain colors in the design that you want me to pull out for trim color and secondary fabric make sure you let me know. It will save a lot of money and time if I know just what I'm looking for. Keep in mind that I can dye, paint, or stain your basket a specific color as well to give it an extra custom look. If you would like me to send pictures of your work in progress please let me know, I do all the work myself and it's nice that you can see how it's done and the different stages of your one of a kind basket piece!
