Frank Beirne Fabrics are proud to present our new reminiscence basket. The basket is part of our brand new line of memorabilia packs now available to order directly from us.
The basket can be used in a group setting or one to one with a carer or family member.

The items are presented in a vintage style handled wicker grocery basket and contain the following items:
