  1. I have one, and I love it. It’s always on the counter filled with something. I use mine as a cooling rack for bread (see the website), and to hold hot rolls on the dinner table.

  2. I’d line it with a flannel fabric swatch and put candy canes in it! For non-holiday uses, it would be the perfect basket for fresh fruit!

  3. I’d put anything and everything in it! Towels in the guest bath…dyed eggs at Easter…cookies at any time…snacks for my nieces. So many ideas!

  4. I think this little basket would look great on my kitchen table with some cute little oranges or lemons in it! Just a pop of color and citrusy scent!

  5. I wouldn’t put eggs in it, since I’m a fan of proper refrigeration. Maybe a variety lemons, limes, grapefruit, and oranges. Or peanut butter balls. Yeah, peanut butter balls…

  6. For Christmas I would fill it with a bunch of pomegranates to make it festive. In the Fall, it would be really cute with a bunch of mini pumpkins &/or gourds.

  7. My cousin made these Egg Baskets back in the 70’s for me.I was a teen then an worked Trade Days at Nashville Tn.Fairground an Louisville Ky. an Birmingham Atlanta Ga.all at the Fair Grounds.I shipped these all over the lower 48 from 1974 thur 1978 when we lost him his son could make them but wanted to double my price so i had to stop selling them.They were great i sold several thousand during those years along with Solid wood Picture Frames an Raw wood Products.Nashville Tn. town paper ran a story on me as the youngest seller at the Fairgrounds all 48 states had sellers there every 4th weekend about 5000 dealers each month Lord i miss those good days.
