Our hearts went pitter-patter this morning because today's steal is a RARE find and absolutely beautiful! OH and did we mention it has been the MOST requested piece since we first offered it and it SOLD OUT in an hour!!! Yes you read that right, these beauties were gone before we could even finish our first cup of coffee!!!! These vintage inspired tobacco baskets have been all the buzz and we couldn’t WAIT to bring you MORE!!! Hurry and add to cart before they all go!!!
Tobacco baskets have been an important part of North Carolina history for years, but are fast disappearing! Baskets, just like these, were used by tobacco companies and family farms to display their products when they took them to market, but now they are popping up in home decor everywhere! I mean left and right we keep seeing these gorgeous baskets on display!
One of our favorite ideas for these is to create a frame above your mantle or fireplace for your smaller boxwood wreaths! They make the perfect wall decor and are even FANTASTIC for holding and displaying items on your ottomans, coffee tables and dining tables. We love the idea of displaying memorabilia from these on your wall or adding flower arrangements to them. We simply can’t get enough of the weathered look and authentic beauty these baskets convey.
We know what you’re thinking....being inspired by `such a rare find these baskets much cost a fortune! Well, we are here to surprise you by bringing you these at a price so great it will make your hearts pitter-patter as well!!
