You gotta watch out -- some of the baskets sorta look nice to the 
tourists but aren't well made like a true artist does ( and there are a 
few of them around and their baskets are mighty spendy). My wife, 
unfortunately, has learned the discernment...

to dem rich whifolks come Keewaw.  I axed her to makes me a sweet grass 
whip doon yo know wun day n she dun mades dat fo me but she done tows me

pleasant dey gits real upset peoples be doon dat kinda thing. I makes

Dem ladies gots da law fo dem to sell dem baskets in da ro dere you

Could probably make a killing importing them from the islands and 
reselling locally, set up a little roadside stand, be the only white 
folks out there selling them, charge half the price the local sellers 
charge.
