I have 2 wooden laundry baskets and I really like them but not sure what to do with them. I don't need them for laundry!
Please check out the pics on garden junk.
Thanks you your ideas.

RE: what would you use these for?

I would use them in the fall when I go to the orchard to pick apples - it is a bushel fruit basket. They also look great with a huge pot of mums in them in the fall.

RE: what would you use these for?

Oh, I forgot to mention I used to go out to Pearblossum & get peaches & pears to can & I could pick them out of those baskets- they really are made for carrying fresh fruit in from fields & displaying it. The market out there had about 50 of them lined up with all kinds of apples, peaches greenish pears, some softer fruit was in lugs which were wooden at the time. They had a year around Christmas store out there in the desert & so I always had to stop there for a bit, but I liked to get fruit ready to use(usually marked down too) so would go home the 60 miles & then can fruit until all of 1 kind were in jars & finish up the following day.
