Today I went to an actual flea market but didn't find anything. But on the way home, I stopped at a yard sale and got this great picnic basket!
It's really sturdy (as the 20-something girl who sold it to me noted) and for $5 I thought I could use it. I had a picnic basket already, but it was one of those modern wicker ones they sell at discount stores. It just didn't have any personality. So this one will work much better, plus it's a whole lot bigger.
We go for a picnic about once a week, so it will get plenty of use. I take my kids to the local library on Tuesday afternoons, where they have an outdoor lunch/story hour. Needless to say, I'm the only "vintage" mom there, so this basket will probably get me a few more looks. But I'm used to that by now, and thankfully my kids aren't old enough to complain.
