A Tisket, A Tasket 

This Easter, put your treats in a one-of-a-kind handmade basket filled with goodies from Laughing Moon Chocolates. Laughing Moon recently teamed up with Randolph basket maker Elizabeth "Budge" Phillips, who in turn enlisted the help of other local artisans to weave alternatives to synthetic, mass-produced Easter baskets. The collaboration is part of Laughing Moon owner Leigh Williams' effort to make her packaging greener and more sustainable. Some products, for example, now come in compostable bags, or wrapped in compostable cellophane and ribbon. "It has been an evolution toward only doing things I feel good about," she explains. The woven baskets complement Laughing Moon's other local-basket options, including Vermont-made Flashbags with Woody Jackson designs and bunny totes from Designs by Gwynne. Says Williams, "It's going to be a handmade Easter at Laughing Moon."

Handmade Baskets: Laughing Moon Chocolates, Stowe, open daily 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Info, 253-9591.
