Vintage Fruit Picking Bucket

What a busy week it's been.  I've been away from home all week visiting with friends in Oregon and I'm still here.  With all the running around this week and the 4th of July show on Wednesday, I really haven't had the opportunity to get out for some serious treasure hunting....yet.  I did manage to stop by one little shop here in Ashland and hopefully will be able to get back there before I head home next weekend.

This old fruit picking bucket had my name on it.  Galvanized metal, chippy paint, jute straps, heavy duty bag....I had to have it, especially since it was on sale.

I'm still not sure what it will become, but for now, I think it's perfect for these dried flowers.

  1. Looks like the perfect use for the bucket. Enjoy your time with your friends. I am starting to get cabin fever since it is to hot to get out here.

  2. I have never seen one like that, surprising since I spent my teenage years in the Yakima Valley of WA and picked my share of fruit. It almost looks like it has pants on the bottom - LOL!

  16. That works great as a flower pot. While I don't have one of those, I do have a vintage fruit picker. (I guess that's what it's called. It has a wooden handle with a metal thing to collect the fruit. I'm horrible at descriptions.) I haven't found an alternative use for it yet.
