The Basket Lady Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: 1988
  • Founded by: Carol Littman and Kelli Katch
  • Headquarters: Philadelphia, PA

THE BASKET LADY is owned and managed by mother-daughter duo Carol Littman and Kelli Katch. Coming from a family with deep roots in the design and distribution of decorative products for the home, both Carol and Kelli have a keen sense of style and design. During the earlier part of the 1900's, Carol's grandfather manufactured and distributed hand-painted decorative trays, many of which were used as wall art. Her father was a pioneer of imported home decor from around the world and one of the first importers of Italian ceramics, much of which he personally designed and can still be found actively traded on Ebay. Besides ceramics, his business included many other product categories, including baskets, which gave Carol her introduction into the world of wicker.
