This Old House -- American Classics

Posted by

We are very excited that our Peterboro High-styled Picnic basket is shown in the opening spread of the This Old House American Classics feature July, 2014.

Peterboro Basket Company has been handcrafting baskets since 1854, so it seems appropriate that we should be included in This Old House. We also use 100% made-in-the-USA parts, from American hardwood to the brass rivets and wipe-out liners, so “American Classic” also seems fitting.

Many of our baskets are classics, but our picnic baskets feature some of our very best sellers and are perfect for the start of Summer. Built to last for generations, with personalization options these baskets become family heirlooms which may be enjoyed by your children, and your grandchildren, perhaps in their your “old” house.

On a side note, we are pretty sure that the bicycle on the cover of this issue is sporting a Peterboro bicycle basket. . . another American Classic.
