an exceptional capture
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sherri. Part of a display at the local county museum
Jolie décoration.
Bill Phillips: I thought it was fun Martine
A unique but essentially difficult way to store the baskets smile Nice !
Bill Phillips: Not ideal if you need a ladder to get one down to go shopping with
A fun shot - and a really lovely song!
Bill Phillips: I always liked that song

I only know the term TRUG for the left top. I bet the others have specialised names too..
Bill Phillips: Yes Trug I know too. I have never really thought about basket names
This is a good display, Bill, of how baskets can be made so differently from one another. And yes, what a fun video.
Bill Phillips: All shapes and sizes in the world of baskets Ginnie

Not many people use baskets any more. Do you remember the "gondola" baskets that were all the rage in the 60s?
Bill Phillips: They tend to be used for decoration but the craft of making them seems to be alive and well. I remember wine bottles in baskets with candles in them grin

Do you use one of these when you do the shopping, Billiam?
Bill Phillips: Naturally comrade. I also dress in tweeds and have a manservant
I missed these also when we visited the museum, one still sees such things being used occasionally.

From flying baskets to flying pickets and next year it will be flying wickets. I enjoyed that song in the pub.
They do look old and fragile.

I was thinking trugs (and not "drugs" as auto correct has just suggested). I think a proper trug is top left. I think the others are called Different Types of Baskets.
