Lost Treasure!

This summer we decided to take a break from doing shows, so all of our plastic bins containing our various show supplies (tablecloths, etc) had remained stacked in our studio.  While looking for something else, I happened to open one and found a treasure trove of pine needle baskets!  You know you make a lot of baskets when you find an entire bin full that you hadn't seen in a while.  We have begun to photograph these and have listed nine of them in our Etsy shop today.
