Best picnic basket/supply stores in the LA area?

chrisheadrick | Dec 2, 201401:04 PM

I know this is technically a 'Cookware' thread question, but I need an LA-specific answer:

I'm looking to get a fantastic, traditional wicker picnic basket with service for four. Who offers the best browsable basket/supplies in town?

Basically, all online vendors seem to have the same models from the same wholesalers...

I ordered one recently, and I was quite disappointed when it arrived today...the wicker had breaks/snags in it, the linens were very flimsy:

I'd love to be able to shop for well-stocked picnic baskets in person, to actually see what I'm buying. Any resources anyone knows? A store that has a great browsing selection of high-quality baskets?

I've got two classic 1960's British motorcars,....I'd like to have the perfect basket to properly picnic with that's as stylish and traditional as the cars...

...recommendations, LA Chowhounders?
