Market Baskets at Work

Our Bolga market baskets are among our most popular items.  I’ve compiled a list of things our customers say they use them for.  Some are obvious, others not so much!  If anyone has a use for a market basket that isn’t on the list, we would love to hear from you!
1.  Harvesting produce
2. Grocery/produce shopping
3.  Keeping a litter of kittens in
4. Storing toys in
5. Mushroom hunting
6. Keeping towels in
7. Gathering flowers in, especially around the lavender festival season
8. Carrying rocks (we don’t know any details, just that a large market basket was puchased for this)
9. storing/toting yarn and cloth.  We sell baskets to a lot of textile artists.
10.  Storing/toting books and magazines
11.  Keeping throws/small blankets in
12.  Laundry basket
13. Easter basket (the small market baskets are ideal for this)
14. Picnic basket
15. Toting food to potlucks in
16. Storage on boats.  They won’t be damaged/cause damage if they tip in rough seas, and a little water won’t hurt them.
17. Keeping in a car to hold sunglasses, kleenex, and other odds and ends (our medium market baskets are the perfect size for this.)
18. Using as the basis for a gift basket
19. Gathering and handing out Halloween candy
20. Collecting eggs from the hen house
