Best picnic baskets to buy? In Los Angeles, or on internet?

chrisheadrick | Dec 1, 201407:34 PM     8

Hi, all--

I'm looking to get a fantastic, traditional wicker picnic basket with service for four. Anyone have a great online retailer resource, or one in the Los Angeles area?

Basically, all online vendors seem to have the same models from the same wholesalers...everyone seems to offer the same baskets/backpacks.

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 live in the Los Angeles area...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?

If not, can anyone recommend a great online picnic basket retailer that offers really nice stuff?

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, Chowhounders?
