Stillwater MN show.

We sell handmade baskets, hats, and fans from Ghana, Africa that have been crushed in shipping. These baskets have been handmade from "elephant grass". The grasses have been split with their teeth, dyed naturally, and twisted on their thighs. Then the weavers dip their fingers in water to start the weaving process. We sell these at craft and garden shows, farmers markets, and street fairs. I demonstrate and shape them in water which relaxes the baskets, and puts it back into shape.

All the handles have been covered with goat hide, and everything we sell can get wet, which means if it gets dirty, you can just wash it.

Thank you for considering us...we have truly "Ghana Crazy"!

We are willing to travel 350 miles from Portland, ND!
