Back by popular demand, the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum’s Baskets & Bubbly Auction is going virtual for 2020!
The Baskets & Bubbly event is a top fundraiser for the museum. All proceeds raised will go a long way in helping the museum promote the awareness and appreciation of lightship baskets and their makers.
We do this by educating and engaging the public about the complexity of this art form unique to Nantucket and placing it within a broader context of related crafts.
We are dedicated to preserving Nantucket’s rich history of basket making, supporting scholarship of this art form, and encouraging and mentoring new generations of lightship basket makers.
Bidding starts Wednesday, August 1st at 8am and closes Sunday, August 9th at 8pm.
