Here's an antler basket my neighbour/basketmaking teacher sold me 4 years ago, which hangs on my porch wall as a mail collector:

and here's an outdoor tree, which I call my 'basket-tree' (a play on the word:basketry) holding my atttempts and failures. The squirrels love these.

(They may look good from far, but they are far from good)

No, never sell baskets; just give 'em as gifts. They take too much time to make and would cost an arm and a foot to buy. :lol:
