Have Cart will Shop



The other day while at the fruit and vegetable market in Rennes (in France,) I saw these hyper cute portable shopping carts! I quickly snapped one up! Far more practical than a back pack!
Aren't they snazzy these eye candy color treats! Just too hip not to like them!

Seeing these made me think how I could take a simple metal frame cart and doll it up with vintage fabric, creating my own little snazzy antiquing go cart! My wheels are turning! Isn't it just like that, we see something or buy something for the idea of it, and the creative juices start flowing taking us to new ideas to explore?

My flea market purchases are going to look mighty chic riding inside!

Oh my goodness. This is such a fantastic idea! I love it. I recently broke a fabric rolling cart that belongs to my sister, who is also my roommate, and I've been trying to think of a way to make it up to her. If I take your idea, I will post a picture of it for you to see!

Hi,

I have seen people at the Rose Bowl Flea Market with the standard cart with a tie on vintagy fabric liner. Actually it wouldn't be too hard if you lined it with a bottomweight fabric. This site is so great! I am glad I found it.

This has already been done over at www.plump-pudding.typepad.com, I believe. Look through her archives.
