NEED A WICKER BASKET TODAY
March 29, 2005
Back to questions
We are in need of a Dallas-Fort
Worth area dealer who carries good-quality wicker baskets
for bicycles. This is for a retirement gift for a two-star
Army general, and we need to purchase one TODAY!
Unfortunately for you, my favorite local source
of baskets, Basket Biz of Dallas (in general, I give em four stars)
recently decided to close their shop and sell it. That leaves you,
as I see it, three options:
I probably dont have to tell you that, just
like invading a country, your effort would've more likely
succeeded if youd planned ahead.
- Call all the bike shops in your area. Use the
Yellow Pages or search the Web site of the National
Bicycle Dealers Association.
- Contact a reliable basket company in another state
and have them overnight a basket to you. Try Cynthias
Twigs, 888/404-1444, or Ashwood Basket Corp. (NH), 800/463-6233.
- A long shot: Contact a local company that supplies
gift baskets and ask them to recommend another local company that might
supply bike baskets. (E.g., Yo
Pop Etc., 800/466-6364.)
