My Mom and Wade made one last pass through my grandparents’ barn before the property was sold when we visited Paducah in July (see here). Among the items they salvaged, I was saved this basket. My Mom thinks it was made by my great grandfather (I think). I didn’t take a before picture, but the bottom was unattached and it was old and dry. Wade repaired the bottom and oiled it for me. Now I almost hate to use it in my house for fear of what two boys might do to it. I love the pieces I have accumulated from my family (and I have a lot)!
