The latest Blog from Choice Baskets

Fifteen years ago I bought a small gift shop business in Skipton. I increased the basket side, learning about the materials, meeting with suppliers both old and new, and keeping in touch with home décor trends.

Choice Baskets was one of the first to have a website, adding Ebay and Amazon shops along the way. The online business has grown over the years to become one of the more well-known retailers of all things basket.

Today, after a lot of soul searching, the time has come to hang up my baskets and spend time with family and friends, enjoy life and have a good long holiday, which I haven’t been able to do for a number of years.

I’ve really enjoyed my time with Choice Baskets, meeting lots of new people, designing baskets and taking the business forward.

Choice Baskets has been my baby from the start. As anybody running a business on their own will understand, it’s really hard to let go and not something you can easily hand over to someone else.

I would like to thank everybody that has been on the Choice Baskets journey with me – Mike, Grace, Family, Friends, Customers, and Suppliers’, I couldn’t have done it without your support.

Choice Baskets will close on Sunday 28th July 2019. Between now and then we will be discounting our stock online and instore. We will also be holding a Warehouse Sale at our unit on Saturday 6th July, with many items reduced by 50%.

Please share the date it would be good to see you on that day.

Here’s to the future, wonder what my next job will be!
