Bought this basket from a women carrying fruit in it while in Jamaica back in 1985. The basket is in excellent condition 13" high including handle, 10" high from bottom to opening, 26" long edge to edge and 16.5" wide.

A little about how/why we are selling on and what to expect of us and our posts

1.Despite the number of ads, we are NOT buyers & resellers on (not that I am suggesting there is anything wrong with this!) We are preparing to downsize to living full time on a sailboat, thus 99.99% of our personal belongings must be sold to prepare to move aboard the boat. Our advertised items are personal belongings acquired / accumulated throughout our lifetime. We do not operate from a store, but rather are selling from our home.

2.If the ad is active, the item is AVAILABLE! Please DON'T send us an email asking if the item is still available! We are respectful of your time, and would hope that you would also be respectful of ours. We DELETE items from moments after pickup, so if the ad is up, you can be 99.999% sure the item is still available. We receive hundreds of spam emails weekly from people who are only seeking our email address. Many of these emails simply ask "is this item still available", so if that is all you say, unfortunately, we may not even respond to your email.

3.It would be most helpful if in your first email you could ensure we know which items are of interest, provide a name and phone number, and propose a date and approximate time when you might want to come and look at or pick up the items.

4.We research EVERY item on popular auction sites and then list our items at a considerable discount off the average SOLD price, NOT the listed price! So, our items are already priced to sell quickly! Please don't come planning to haggle on price. (We understand it is common practice for sellers on to often post things much higher than they are worth or than they wish to receive, expecting to haggle and come down on price. We don't have time for this approach and are already pricing things at deep discount. That said, let us know if you think we have seriously missed the mark on something and can provide online reference sites that justify we have overpriced an item.

5.Although we realize there are some who are nervous about going to a stranger's home, we DON'T deliver or meet you halfway, or even in a public place near our home. If we wanted to pack, drive to the post office and ship packages, we would be selling our items on eBay for twice the advertised price. One of the many beauties of is that people come to your front door and pick items up. No hassle, no packing, no shipping costs. If you are nervous, you should do some web research on us to get comfortable. It is pretty easy today to figure out who people are with minimal effort. That said, if you live VERY far away, and we are selling an item that you can't live without, we can discuss shipping it to you. Obviously, you will need to first pay for the item and shipping & handling via PayPal.
