Creative genius: Multi-functional wire basket

I love supporting local artists and I had to share this genius hand-made product I bought last week from a street vendor.

By just pulling the basket in different directions and shapes, you can create various forms for function.  This is amazing, check this out:

This street vendor, called Gerald, made this basket himself and I think it is pure genius.  It is so easy to play around with.  And I’m ashamed to say he only charged me R50.00 (just under $6).

Proud to be South African!
