Default Looking for wicker type storage baskets - any cheap deals around?

Just got a small kitchen unit with two open shelves. My idea is to keep the veg here ( as opposed to O/H chucking everything into the worktop corner ).So I'm looking to buy two baskets which will live on these two shelves. They don't have to be wicker - could be seagrass, anything natural really. Size of baskets to be 40cm wide by 40cm long and about 20cm high. Has anyone seen anything like this around at a reasonable price ? Many Thanks.

I got some from Ikea, they were about £7 but are really sturdy. They seem to have quite a few styles as well.

Morrisons have some in at the moment too.

I'll move this to the 'I wanna' board where you should get some more response.
May all your dots fall silently to the ground.

Woolie's have sold out ( local branches ). Just my luck they were on sale too at half price. Ikea's too far, Bristol is the nearest to me. Going to check ot where the nearest Morrisson's is now. Thanks to all.
