We can’t believe that it is January 2019 already. Summer is finally here and so happy that our wait for baskets is almost over.
I had a quick swim at our local beach the other day and it was 2 duck baskets everywhere – such a great sight to see.
While we wait for the final few weeks for the container here is a sneak peek of some of the new styles coming!!
The cute pom pom basket and a cherry basket. These two and more will be available very soon. Plus plenty of other styles and all our favourites too.
In the mean time we still have many great baskets on our site – just pop over to My Shop to see what is in stock.

Basket of the Month

Every where in France in May is the mois du Muguet – the festival of the Lily of the Valley. It heralds the beginning of spring and is one of my favourite traditions in France – everyone gives you a bouquet of muguet as gift of good luck. We will be in France from mid June for a few weeks and and so look forward to getting back in touch with these charming traditions.
Free shipping – reminder that our offer of free shipping on baskets goes until this Friday 6th May.
Website – we are continuing our revamp of the website and will be bringing more products – the St James tee shirts and our lovely linens. Keep checking back to see what is new.

2 duck for March
After the busyness of February and the trade fair we are back to our markets and planning for events and preparing for our next shipment.
Basket of the Month
The baskets with leather trim and thick comfy handles are amongst the strongest and most durable in our range. This basket adds rustic charm to the classic style. Woven in the rarer dwarf palm tree leaf it has a rougher and more raw look. Made in the western part of Morocco nearer the coast it reflects the traditions of that area. This and all our baskets available on the buy basket online page – buy baskets
