Maine Made Baskets by Gin

Sometimes I truly love this great State that we live in..... Don't get me wrong, Maine is a very hard state to do business in, but it is the people that I get to meet every so often, the ones that are so talented and are willing to allow me to carry their products in my store. Those people amaze me in so many, many ways.
Today we had a load of baskets dropped off. Gin, lives in Franklin, Maine and has a love of weaving that I can only imagine. The amount of time is incredible that goes into one of her baskets and then as clever as she is at weaving them, she again is that clever at distressing them. They truly are a work of Art. Thanks again Gin, for allowing us to carry such a great product.

If you all get a chance to stop by and check these out I think you will surely be delighted. I probably won't blog again until after the holiday, so I wish you all a safe and reflective Memorial Day. Don't forget that we are continuing our SAVINGS CARD program, so that way you can decide for yourself what is on sale each month. Come on by and get started so your savings can begin & just remember that "It's Always Worth the Trip @ Silkweeds".
