Shakers was one of successful religious groups from 18th century till early 20th century.
Each family lived close each other and had a huge farm. Their seeds were well sold, so you might have seen their seed boxes somewhere.

I had those seed boxes and shaker oval boxes which have a special design and are easily recognized.
As you can see, Yes, I bought a set of boxes!
Nantucket baskets and Shaker boxes ... which reminisced the old America.
At a museum shop, there was a basket raffle! Why don't we join it?!
We wrote down our name and address and crossed our fingers to hope that we will be selected!
