Fruit Picking Pack

kauffman pack fuit picking basket

The Kauf­mann Mer­can­tile Store is offering this rat­tan bas­ket that is perfect for fruit and vegetable picking as well as farmers market visiting.  Not only is it handy but it is a beautiful earthy object (like all the rest of the great stuff that the Kaufmann store offers).   I am also really enjoying their blog, where they recently shared some interesting history about (similar) Adirondack pack baskets — Did you know that the most famous basket maker is woman named Dat-so-la-lee (1829-1925), aka Louisa Keyser, of the Washoe tribe in Nevada.  A basket made by Dat So La Lee has fetched as much as $25,000 at auction.  This one isn’t cheap ( a little over a hundred dollars) but I think it is still very nice…..

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I would be tempted to hang that from a door or a wall and fill it with dried lavender and gather my tomatoes in a shopping bag. It’s just so pretty.
