Repurposed: Vintage Retro Knitting Basket
I spotted some retro items at a yard sale of an elderly couple who were hoping to get rid of some old stuff. That always makes me happy because I know they have the kind of items I would be interested in. Plus, they are usually in fabulous condition. I spotted a couple vintage knitting baskets and couldn't help but be drawn to them. The patterns and material were straight out of the 60s and looked too cute to pass. I bought one for a $1 and I am kicking myself for not just getting the other one, even though I wasn't a huge fan of the material or color. Oh well, lessons must be learned. I am not a knitter, but I thought I could still use it for something....I decided a magazine holder for now. Who knows, I might use it for something else in the future!
I am very satisfied with my little find. Sometimes you just have to accept the small things, knowing the bigger treasures will be found soon enough!
