Down to the wire

I'd like an old wire basket or tray for my desk. Nothing more, nothing less. Maybe something like pic #1 or pic #2. Now if I could only find one here in Melbourne (or at least Australia!)...

Hi Lee. I love all these, particularly pic #2. I like you looked in Aus... and ended up crossing the ocean to find mine at http://whiteflowerfarmhouse.blogspot.com/. Postage is a bugger... but OH SO worth it! Just sometimes you have to spoil oneself.

I am constantly on the lookout for these too! Totally frustrating when you know just what you want/need and then it isn't available over here. I think we all need an overseas shopping trip, and a large container in which to bring all our goodies back....

I totally agree! I've been wanting and antique wire basket for sometime now. The third one is my favorite!

Hi the first one comes from the online shop www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk and they ship internationally I think.

I agree - I love wire baskets. The other day I found a pair at an antique store, but they were so expensive I left them there! Guess I need to hit the flea markets...

Aimee said...

I love wire baskets too. There's something just so rustic and country about them.

I hope you find one!

If you get a chance, come by my Blog for a visit and say hi!
Have a great weekend,
Aimee

Hi Lee - Just stumbled across your blog it is really lovely. Have you searched 'etsy' for your wire baskets? I have seen quite a few listed by various sellers both Vintage and Handmade types. You may find what you are looking for there...Good luck!!

I love this post! Lee, maybe you should consider a career change - you seem to have quite an eye for interior design! (I changed from being a lawyer to a stylist so I know it can be done!!!). xx

hi Lee
Have actually just seen some nice wire baskets identical to no 2 in shape but made with chicken wire in Perfect Pieces - they are in High Street Prahran and also somewhere in Hawthorn maybe Auburn Road. They are very nice, not expensive. Perfect.
