Next up on our list of great summer items to resurrect - the Shelton picnic basket. The Shelton company dates back to 1911 when the original company (founded in 1862) was sold to a new owner and moved to Shelton, Connecticut. The baskets are made of hand drawn oak or ash splints. Great for summer picnics and barbeques - convenient with flip down handles and a hinged lid. I lined my own with a piece of vinyl to make it waterproof - so it can be used to pack your cold beverages or to take your summer salad on ice to your next event. Not only are the Shelton baskets perfect for summer living, they are a great solution when you need extra storage in your home. In the bathroom for rolled up towels, in the mudroom for hats and mitts, or in the family room for toys and games. Easy to find at antique shops, and usually priced under $55. When shopping check it over thoroughly to make sure the bottom is still intact and the handles are secure if you wish to use it for carrying. Completely versatile and timeless, why not find one today! Raw vintage resurrected.
