Once made by Travellers in Scotland who coppiced willows on land they returned to year after year, this sturdy shopping basket is my take on this familiar style. This Market Basket is crafted from natural willow for visiting farmers markets, it's also good as a work/hobby/tool basket and it's made to last.

Length 16.5" x Width 12" x 7" high ( approximately 13" tall with handle)

Length 42 cm x Width 30 cm x Height 18 cm (approximately 33 cm tall with  handle height)

Delivered in around 2 to 5 working days from the time you order.

All baskets are handmade by John in small batches in his workshop in the market town of Lanark, UK, using only UK-grown willows.


  
Delivery is £4.95 for this style.


If your desired quantity isn't available online,  or if you need expedited delivery, please contact me to arrange.


I try to supply willow colours as close as possible to the natural colours illustrated in the photos above, give or take slight variation in natural willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different,  please allow for some slight variations in natural willow colours.

Lovely craftsmanship

I received my shopping basket today and I'm absolutely delighted with it. So beautifully made and it reminds me of taking a similar basket to school with my cookery ingredients in. That was a long time, and at least this time I won't be spilling vinegar from my soused herrings in it!! I'm using it to keep my embroidery in and will leave it in the lounge as it looks very attractive. Thank you.

Go retro and say NO to plastic bags

I started off my obsessive collecting of John's baskets with this beauty. I was so glad of having my own basket when the Pandemic hit - Shopping made even more sanitised and safe - not having to hold any other baskets other than my own, made so much sense. It also started many a conversation with people of all ages about , how we 'had those at school for home economics' and 'my mum had one', In fact, I loved it so much ...... I bought another one ! it still smells utterly Devine. I have even bought some for friends who now look 'retro' with me but who also love their baskets.
