Time for a giveaway!

Yay, who doesn’t love something for nothing? Well not quite nothing. You have to leave me a comment, but more of that later.


One of the catch phrases I hear the most from my clients is “I don’t have enough storage.” You too? There’s always things that need to find a home and what better place than one of these gorgeous market baskets from The Market Basket Co.

Not just practical, they are very stylish too with all the beautiful women of France taking them to the markets or the beach or riding around on their velo (that’s French for bicycle). The good news is, you don’t have to go to France to buy one. They are available here in Australia as a result of Lindy McLeod seeing the many uses of them in France and deciding to bring them home. The baskets are individually handmade in Morocco using traditional methods and techniques and made from strips of woven palm leaves from a species of date palm. They are finished with Moroccan leather handles either short or long.


The lovely people at The Market Basket Co have offered us one to giveaway just in time for Mother’s Day. They would make the perfect gift. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell us what you would store in your basket in the home. As I have too many magazines, I think mine would sit in the family room and be laden with magazines.


The names of those who leave a comment will go in the draw for the Rosie basket which is valued at $65 and comes with a rose material drawstring closure and red leather handles. Winner will be drawn on 30 April and announced here on 1 May.

Rosie Basket The Market Basket Co. RRP $65.00

  49. I was lucky enough to inherit my mother-in-law’s French woven basket many years ago and I have used it endlessly myself (often to take towels to the beach) however it has seen better days and the metal studs that attach the leather handles are actually rusty by now (probably thanks to all that beach air!) so I would dearly love to update to a new authentic French basket – particularly one that has the handles stitched on – gorgeous and practical!
