Two more baskets: a creel and a picnic basket from Carbonear

My obsession with Newfoundland baskets continues... I've got a series of photos sent to me by Frank Parsons of two baskets which he inherited from his father. The first, a creel, or trout basket, was bought in Carbonear in the 1950s, possibly the late 40s. The date of the picnic basket is more uncertain, but it dates to the 1950s at least. A query for Carbonear natives: which shop would have sold these, or items like this?
