A Basket Case!

Ever since I have had my bike I have also developed a compulsion for purchasing baskets. This has to STOP! Our apartment now has baskets in every nook and cranny and on top of each other. ENOUGH!

Our original bike baskets - decorated of course!


But how can I stop when there is so many great (and cheap) baskets out there... perfect for bikeling around with? The answer is to tell you (yes YOU!) where to buy them so that the temptation is removed.

So here is my secret.... VINNIES. Yes St Vincent De Paul (charity op shop for those not in the land of Oz). I took photos to prove it.

All of these baskets are being sold for less than $8. Crazy! Thats cheaper than lunch or lunch!

Here is some I have already purchased in my compulsive shopping cycles...

When you also happen to find shoes in your size that look great at the same time...

They are great for decorating... (see J-Bot's Art-Attack!).

Here is E-gg's basket (also purchased at Vinnies that is still at our place *hint) waiting for her...

All you need is a back rack and an occy strap or two and off you go!

Milky Joe loves travelling in them too...

Baskets are fabulous for picnicking and can hold all sorts of treasures. Like Silly String... fun in a can!

Surely I have sold you on this by now.

Save me and please, please, please buy the baskets... !
