For over twenty years, Elder Sark collected a variety of baskets and displayed them in his store. He assembled hundreds of different baskets, constructed from a variety of materials, including ash, maple, willow, birch bark, sweetgrass, horsehair, beads and quill. In addition to purchasing the work of individual craftspeople, Elder Sark collected old aboriginal baskets on his travels throughout North America.
