Baskets, Baskets, Baskets

Another special exhibit of Fall, 2007 was a large number of the museum's array of woven baskets- wicker, rattan, grass, fancy, utilitarian, and more! Some of the baskets had a history of being over 150 years old. When featured on their own, their aged beauty and stability were interesting and noticeable. Some were sewing or mending containers, some for fruits and vegetables, some purse-like, and some for storage and laundry.
