The Wandering Peacock

Westfield, MA - When in Westfield, MA, stop by The Wandering Peacock for some unique gifts. Their specialty is Nantucket Baskets made by Karen Novak the proprietor of this shop. If you want something more personal why not make one of this baskets by yourselves. They run classes to teach you how to make one of these baskets yourself. They also run other kinds of classes, art, knitting, and even fishing rod making; I took this class and now have a new fly rod I made myself.

These are some of Karen's work.

Basket Molds, Nantucket Baskets are made around these molds.
