All the way from Egypt

Found it at the thrift store for $ 4.99. Hand woven, natural fibres and dyes. There were bigger pieces of baskets but very expensive. This is all I got.

Awwww! I love thrift store..but you really need the eye to distinguish the good ones in the junk. Beautiful basket Jaya!

Thanks Siri and Sra.

Siri, you are right. More often than not there is junk which is why I usually don't go to the thrift store but a friend who visits regularly called to say they had some brand new bicycles for $20. I needed one for Jr so I went and also found the basket. It is still expensive for a thrift store but since it was all the way from Egypt and all...

You do get a lot of lovely handicrafts in Egypt, I hear. And you managed to get one closer home.
