Happy 2017 to one and all.

Our thanks to everyone who has commented on our recent blog. The response was quite overwhelming!

But now I need to update on what we have/have not available.

Due to the difficulty of getting handles made for most of our baskets – our supplier has a two-month backlog, and to date, I have not been able to find an alternative source.

We still have a number of baskets in stock, and anything we have, or can have made, bases for, we will happily accept an order for. This includes our Lidded Bowls; Oblong Bread, Cracker, Mini Cracker; Trays; some purses; Oval Bun/Bread; and some Trays.

Please call if you have any questions or maybe special requests.

Our number is: 352 351 3533.

After a very successful business for twenty-plus years, we have decided to wind down our business.

While ever we still have finished baskets on hand, and materials to make special orders, we will be happy to work with customers.

I have taken photos of most of what we have on hand, though a couple of those have sold before I could get this blog posting completed! And though a professional photographer/tutor has been TRYING to teach me how to take better images, and post-edit them, I have to agree with the old saying ‘its hard to teach an old dog new tricks’! But I’m sure you’ll overlook the bad images, and just focus on the baskets.

We hope there will be something to catch your attention … and we look forward to hearing from you

Dear Lorraine:

I would delightedly like to notify that I have received those terrific totes last night. They demonstrate again your tremendous craftsmanship and aesthetics. Thank you very much.

I have one question. Since the present baskets are newly woven, a sort of overpowering smell of the chemical (does it come from adhesives or lacquer?) just a little annoys me. Do you have some tips to eliminate that earlier? I know, of course, that will disappear in the process of time. But, since I live in a one-bed room at a high rise apartment in a metropolitan area, my space is limited and ventilation is not so good.

But anyway, I absolutely love them. Thank you very much for taking
time to create those for me.

Sincerely,
Keiko

Thank you, Lorraine & Gene

Hello, I have just received the beautiful clutch purse, you carefully sent to me by my boyfriend’s request.

I am a great fan of artistic works of craftsmanship, and to be an owner of a Nantucket basket has been my dream for several years. You made the dream come true in a most fabulous way. I will keep it forever with a tender care.

Let me come back to your online store again. There are more dream stuffs that will enrich my life.

Please accept my gratitude,

K.N., your admirer from Tokyo, Japan / New Haven, CT.

Dear Lorraine,

Gene has worked a miracle because this basket has not looked this wonderful since it was a pup! I would never recognize the yucky mess I sent as being the same article, and as for the inside – well, I just can’t believe you were able to erase the abuses of many a year and bring it back to a condition which will not attract the attention of the board of health! I can’t tell you how thrilled and grateful I am with your amazingly quick repairs/restoration, and I so appreciated you communication through the process! How fortunate I am to have stumbled upon your website!

Lorraine, I cannot recommend your services highly enough, so give my number to nervous potential customers so they can call me, or post my writing, or whatever you please! We basket carriers may not be a huge segment of the population, but we require specialized quality and talent we can count on when seeking care for our beloved little pieces of art; as the kiddies say, you guys are the bomb! I hope you will be providing your services for many years to come!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Blair

Dear Lorraine, Gene and Peanut,

WOW! The Jose Reyes basket you repaired for me is totally amazing.I purchased it at the Sept.16th Woodbury Auction,knowing it needed restoration.There are no discernible repairs, the minutest details were observed and corrected. I feel your restoration has greatly enhanced the value of this very pretty purse, rather than in the hands of unskilled restorers the value would have greatly diminished.

Any museum, collector or dealer should have complete confidence in entrusting their baskets to you for restoration, the level of your skill is equal to if not superior to the work on Nantucket.

Your professionalism, you discussed each repair process with me beforehand, your promptness, you returned the basket less than 3 weeks total repair time. your price was more reasonable than those I was quoted on Nantucket, guarantees a pristine basket.The patina matches the original – so perfectly to say we are impressed is an understatement. I also appreciate the extremely well packaged box you returned our basket in.

Now, I think I need to be the proud owner of a Wieskamp,difficult to choose one!

With gratitude and respect,
