Kansas? I was going through boxes looking for stuff to sell and came across this basket.
Seems that the Green Tea that has been all the rage for the past few years was also popular at the turn of the century. The label says extra fancy green tea, produced and packaged in Japan for the H. D. Lee Mercantile Co.
It holds about 8 ounces and has 35 cents written in pencil on it. Can't believe the basket, grosgrain ribbon and label plus the tea for 35 cents which must have been a lot in its day.
All the way from Japan, up the mighty Mississippi River to Kansas. Who knew?
