It Had Me At Lichfield Laundry

4.04.2015

A couple days ago I showed you where I recently went junking and today I am sharing one of my favorite purchases.

Only one of you guessed that I would have bought this lidded basket. As soon as I spotted it I knew I wanted it. I stacked it on top of my other large French lidded basket that I bought in Franklin, Tn.


This basket is half the size of the one it sits on, but it is in very good condition. I love that someone painted Lichfield Laundry on it. That just gives it more character.

Glad the straps and buckles are still in tact.



This is the first one I have seen  with this type of reinforcement.



Mr. Savvy said this basket is in much better shape than the bottom one. He never could understand why I bought that one since it is a bit rickety. Well, because it was a good price and it just needed someone to take it home. The new one was only $95 which was a very good deal for one of these.

It's Easter weekend, but maybe you will be getting out and getting your junkin on.

Have a good one!

  8. Kim,
    I did take notice of that basket when I saw the pics of your junking trip and thought to myself I wonder if she bought that? We are busy with Easter preparations at our house this weekend and my hubby worked all yesterday mowing the lawn and working in the yard.

    However, next week we plan on doing some "fun" stuff which includes taking a road trip hitting some of my favorite shops. We also plan on taking a day or two and going to DC to see the cherry blossoms when they are in bloom. Have a wonderful Easter!

  18. I am so glad you visited The Tobacco Barn ! It is one of my favorite haunts. Is about 5 minuets from my office and I have been late back from lunch more times than I can count. You might want want to check out the Regeneration Station east, up the street on Glendale Ave. use you can get a pup right across the street at Brother Wolf. I've been late back from there also ! Happy Easter!

  25. The straps are really nice. Great find!

  26. Kim, what a lucky find! I especially like the little handle-holes (no need to worry about old, fragile handle straps pulling loose with these types of handles). I like the other basket too-- very pretty with the 'basket weave' pattern. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comment. -- Melissa
