Love love love this find the other day at the thrift store. I almost passed them up because it was after Easter.
They were in the basket section. I glanced and saw they were Easter baskets and I thought "hmm, cute but..." and almost walked by.
Then I took a second glance.
|Vintage Easter Baskets|
They were displayed like they were here. I realized there were no handles. "Well that's different" I thought. So I picked them up and found they were attached, one inside the other...they weren't meant to have handles...instead...
|Easter Baskets shaped like an egg|
...the "extra" basket next to each actually folded up and over the other part to form a giant, wicker, Easter egg! How cool is that? They certainly seem vintage, at least from the age of the wicker and the old elastic closure.
Once I realized what they were, I certainly couldn't resist. And at $1.50 each? Well that was a no brainer! They are so unique and best of all, there are two. Maybe I can convince 2nd Man for us to fill them with goodies next year, start a new tradition.
Adults need candy and treats too, right?
