Sure OCBC sells bike baskets and can special order even more styles not in stock, but it can’t sell you one that’s handmade from rattan reed, sea grass, and solid ash wood. New neighbors—and our super friends—at Oil and Cotton (follow them on Facebook) opened their French doors for business last Saturday and is hosting their first workshop this weekend—a bike basket–building class. You’ll learn to make one like the fine example pictured above—complete with leather straps and metal handle perfect for riding around and running errands. There’s limited-space available and you’ve gotta R.S.V.P. so don’t sleep on this cool class. Register here.
