WILLOW - BASKETS
 

There is nothing quite like holding a willow basket in your hands - to feel the heft, to smell the willow and to dream of uses for it. Many of you have asked about my baskets, so I'm trying this page to show some of the work that I have available for sale. Prices vary and does not include shipping. If you are interested, email me through this website or call (563-735-5570). At this time payment will have to be via check or by credit card over the phone.
