And now for the basket…
This is the 2009 Bountiful Basket that I had made to celebrate Southern Plate’s one year anniversary.
It is entirely handmade by the American Traditions Basket Company in Canal Fulton, Ohio from Hard Maple trees that are harvested in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
It has a custom engraved brass plate attached that I designed.
Comes with a handmade, machine washable liner and plastic protector and features two leather handles.
And has a special “cottage style” weave of cranberry and off white.
I chose cranberry because it reads red and would also be great for decorating for Christmas, Valentine’s, and Fourth of July.
This is in addition to having on your dinner table filled with rolls on a daily basis!
And each comes with a lifetime warranty.
This basket measures 11″ x 8.25″ x 5.5″ and is the perfect size for filling with fresh baked biscuits, storing your apples, or any number of uses around the house.
Each year I am going to have another basket made exclusively for Southern Plate. They will all match this color scheme but be different sizes and styles and have a different name as their part of the series.
I thought I’d offer you the 2009 Bountiful Basket, first in the series, in case any of you would like to have one as well. Please note that this is not a hard sell, I just wanted to offer it because I really love mine! These baskets may only be ordered during the month of August, 2009. I will turn in the orders and have them all made at the end of the month. You should receive them the first part of October.
For this first one, we’re also doing something special. Myself, My Mother, and My Grandmother (three generations) are going to sign the bottom of each basket. This is the only one we are going to do this for.
This basket is made better than any other I have ever seen, and I’ve been collecting baskets for a while now.
If you are a basket person, I know you’ll enjoy it.
