Keala Vintage Wicker Shell Basket

The Keala Vintage Wicker Shell Basket is a real beauty.  I would personally use it to display my beach treasures. I've been collecting seashells for nearly all my life.  My first collection started when my dad took us to Monetary Bay for a weekend.  Back then, they were pretty smelly soaps shaped in seashells.  Now, I'm obsessed with finding the real treasures on the beach.  It's very therapeutic for me to walk the beach or even sit in one spot for hours in search of shells and sea glass.  I have a ritual where I say, "treasures reveal yourselves," before I begin. Lol! It must work because I literally have thousands of pieces that I display in every single room in my house.  Literally, every room.  And I remember where I found each piece because I display them in various containers or baskets like this by location or memory.

Dimensions: 8' x 10"

My note: All vintage pieces are in Excellent Vintage condition unless otherwise noted. If it is not in Excellent Condition it will be priced accordingly. Keep in mind it’s normal for vintage pieces to have an aged weathered look, depending on the item, which adds to its charm and story. “Excellent” by my definition is passing my 5 Point Inspection of no:

  • chips
  • rips
  • stains
  • broken pieces
  • mold

I personally hand pick pieces from all over the world selecting items I personally love and often find challenging to let go of. Priced according to condition and how rare or unique the item it is. Most often vintage pieces have become one of a kind or very few remaining worldwide in Excellent Condition. Vintage prior to the 80s is often well made with quality materials that can withstand the test of times.
