French Market Basket
French market baskets are the sturdiest and most serviceable baskets! Choose your size: small, medium, or large, based on how you plan to use your basket. I have carried one with me for 7-8 years now, and it has become a part of all my New England summer memories. The small basket makes a great purse for all the essentials. I've used the medium basket as my summer purse. But it's also been a beach tote, a farmers' market basket, and a roomy "personal item" when I travel. The large basket will be fabulous as a beach tote, picnic basket, and more. The leather handles are super sturdy, and these baskets can carry a very heavy load. They are your go-everywhere, haul-everything, "look of summer" tote!

- dimensions are as follows: SMALL = 14 3/4"L x 5 1/2"W x 9 1/4"H (13 1/2"H with handles); MEDIUM = 17"L x 6 1/4"W x 10 3/8"H (14 1/4"H with handles); LARGE = 18 1/2"L x 6 3/4"W x 12 1/4"H (16"H with handles)
One lovely thing about New England is that you can always count on someone to be carrying a basket. I see shoppers in the local market shopping with a basket. Women carry their knitting in a basket for town meetings...to keep their busy their fingers busy and make good, productive use of their time. People cut flowers and gather tomatoes and berries with baskets. It's a way of life!
