A Tisket, A Tasket . . .


Uhhhh -- ICK! I've been saving this one for awhile. Have you ever seen anything like this? On our road trip to Miami, Arizona a few weeks ago, I popped into a few antique shops. In all my years of antiquing, this was a first. It was labeled a cadaver transport basket. Ugh. I didn't open it up to see the interior! I collect vintage wicker, but no thanks!

I think people used to be a lot smaller? I wouldn't trust a wicker basket to hold me!

VERY creepy! And the question is, what the hell would a person do with it if they bought it? I hope the dealer got it cheap because I can't imagine who'd want to buy it? Maybe a mortician who collects old tools from the trade?
