I’ve been looking for a suitable basket for Oma’s front rack since I adopted her in October. I was looking at a couple of Basil and Wald baskets and had decided that a simple, big wire basket would be the most utilitarian choice for all weather and hauling conditions. But then I saw this beauty on Velo Orange: the Hershberger Baker’s Basket with Lid. Add to the good looks that it was made by an Amish family in Minnesota, and I was sold.
The basket arrived in the mail yesterday. It is smaller than I imagined and not nearly as yellow as the catalog picture, but still lovely. I sorta question the utilitarian factor, but it’s so beautiful and unique that I don’t really care.
Lots more pictures with prettier backgrounds in the future, along with hauling reviews.
Heads Up: Trisha is flying to the land of ice and wind tomorrow to visit me, so expect some fun joint posts this weekend!!
