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!)
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.
