“FREE: Enormous (No, Really, Truly Enormous) Basket”

Thanks to Beth for passing on from Craigslist:

“Not sure what to do with your deplorables? Looking for a storage solution for your tiskets and taskets? Want a place to put all your eggs at the same time? We have just the basket for you!

The Takoma Park Kinetic Sculpture team is looking for a new home for our award-winning flower basket — part of the sculpture we created for the American Visionary Art Museum’s annual race in Baltimore this year.

It is 14 feet long, 9 feet wide, and 9 feet tall at the top of the basket handle. The walls are 38 inches high side.

It’s made of woven wall paneling, PVC pipe, and burlap. The paneling is polyurethaned, so it could probably last outside for some period of time, though not forever. (It has only been in the Baltimore Harbor once, and briefly.)

The basket can break down into four separate pieces for transport or storage. There are two swinging gates on the sides for entry into the basket. The “Petal to the Metal” sign on the front is removable.

NOTE: FLOWERS (and bikes, obviously) NOT INCLUDED. (sorry)

Easter is coming. (Eventually). Don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime basket opportunity pass you by!!”
