Vintage Brass Basket

I found this gorgeous vintage brass woven basket at a thrift store for $6.99! I’m thinking that it would be a great newborn prop! I love that it has heft to it as well. I’ll probably also use it as decor in our house. One of the cats tried it out as a napping spot, but after about 10-15 minutes decided the pet bed next to it was a better spot:)

Sometimes I like to search online to see if I can find any other information about thrifted items. I was shocked when I found it listed for $275! To think I almost passed it up because $7 is usually more than I ever pay for a decor item at a thrift store. I found a little more information from a couple other places that it was listed: made in India in the 1970s and made by Gatco. I haven’t found any other prices listed.

Do you ever look up to see if thrifted items could be worth more than what you paid? Have you ever been surprised by what you found?

What do you think my basket is worth?
