Peterboro baskets have developed a national reputation with their popularity and are used by farmers and fishermen.

What a lovely sight

To behold

On the handle of a bike

The Peterboro basket

- – -

Amazi Childs

Began weaving

This baby

With delight

In 1854

- – -

Childs did this by intertwining

A special native wood

Into remarkable spectacles

That have come

To be known

As Peterboro baskets

- – -

Today, these baskets are used

Throughout the United States

And are especially popular

With farmers and fishermen

- – -

These unique items

Are featured by many retailers

And sold 

At Sears and Roebuck

- – -

Peterborough, NH

Is the home of this basket industry
