Cool **Basket Advice for Trek Allant WSD, Please?**

Hi, I'm looking for a basket for my Trek Allant WSD (I'm new to cycling, and it's my first nice bike!yay!),
From doing some research, I've found that on flickr, some people have been able to mount the axiom espresso/faux wicker qr baskets onto the front rack. While, I like the look of that basket, I also like the utility of Wald baskets, and the beauty of a rack with wooden slats on the bottom. (like the civia! drool!)

In short, I want to see what ALL of my options are, and want to know what kind of basket is best. Handlebar vs. Rack mounted? I'd prefer to utilize my front rack, if possible, since it came with the bike. Thanks in advance for all your recommendations!
