Baskets, brooms, gourds and much more!

Our talented Kentucky ancestors used local resources to make the items they needed to use everyday. Split white oak was woven into baskets, straw into brooms and gourds became bowls. This strong heritage is evident in the amazing work created by today's artists. All these useful and beautiful pieces will grace your home and provide years of good service. Enjoy a bit of the past today!
