I have been looking for a good wicker basket that won't crack or break at the drop of a hat and I can't find them anywhere. I have seen the Peterboro's on QVC but haven't bought any yet as I'm not sure how durable they really are. And that's a chunk of change to spend on something I know nothing about.

Good? Bad? Indifferent??

I have had one for over 5 years. I've used it to carry projects in, and etc.

I do use normal wear & tear... but it's still in awesome condition.

I have several. My favorite is the one I keep current knitting magazines and books in! It has feet! I love it! It is tall, slim, and a long ovalish shape when looking down upon it. It has handles, too.

Have you had it very long?? Does it crack and break easily?? I don't want to buy a cheap or small one so I know I'm going to fork out some cash for a good basket (shhhh, don't tell my husband :wink: ) so I just want to be sure it'll hold up to normal wear and tear. I'm not expecting it to never break or anything, but I'd like a bit of time to pass before that happens.

Thanks for replying. :)

I've had it for several years. No, it hasn't cracked or anything.
I like the Peterboro baskets...and they are not quite as spendy as some other quality baskets.
