Guess who got a new bike basket?

by Shannon on July 7, 2010

Inspired by crocheted tablecloths, Swedish designer Marie-Louise Gustafsson designed the Carrie bike (and shopping) baskets:

The best price I’ve found (for US shoppers) is here. The shopping basket and bike basket are the exact same size but the shopping basket costs less, FYI. They also come in white and green. I have a limited edition silver Kronan, so I thought the black would be sharp. Also, my dad inadvertently got paint on my bike, so I’m considering having it repainted sparkly black or silver. Girl bike city!

(I used to have a banana yellow 3-speed that got stolen in college. I miss that bike!)

You can thank Mercedes from Kitchen Sink Dyeworks for posting a link to this today and kicking off a round of “Pimp My Bike.”

And one last shopping tip for my thrifty North American friends: if you like Selvedge magazine (and who doesn’t?) you will want to click here.

I love these baskets too – bought my shopping baskets (they only have black and white) online from the Container Store. I think they are only $24.99 there.
