Welcome, in 1982 a friend was kind enough to show me his collection of Native American basketry. I was immediately captivated by their beauty of the baskets, the intracity of their designs and the technical ability of the women to weave native plant vegetation into such fine baskets. I quickly became a collector, then a dealer, and an accredited member of the International Society of Appraisers [ISA] (1995-2000). I am here to share to share my knowledge, answer questions and help anyone wanting to collect, sell, or buy Native American basketry.
