In the early 1980’s I made many baskets and I dyed them blue, gray and red. I sold them all over New England.
Fast forward to 2016, while shopping at Goodwill in Glastonbury Ct. and I stumbled across a familiar basket. Yes indeed it was a faded but dyed red and it was 50 percent off the $2 sticker price.
A real find… handwoven 20 years earlier, sold for about $20 retail and repurchased for $1, painted my signature primitive mustard and resold for $17 wholesale. Timeless and Sturdy!
