True confession: I have a compulsive basket buying habitat. So many shapes, sizes, colors and uses baskets are where it’s at my friends. They are relatively inexpensive and carried at almost every retailer these days. You can usually find awesome baskets at resale shops, flea markets, and if you’re traveling, make sure to check out baskets that might be native to that particular country. Opportunity for major basket scores abroad!
I also use baskets ALL THE TIME when styling photos. They can fill up dead space, keep shots looking organized, add needed texture, become a planter, toilet paper storage and the list goes on.
