Trip to My Mecca

This month marks my 10th anniversary of being a Longaberger consultant. I don't just sell Longaberger products, I LOVE them. I have an addiction. (If you aren't familiar with them, click on the link for my side business and you can see what I'm talking about.)

Yesterday I made the trip with a friend (who also happens to be a customer) to my personal mecca, the Longaberger Homestead, for a Collector's Club Gathering they were having and a day of shopping . On the way there, you pass by their 7-story Basket HQ:


As Stacy & I were shopping in the Factory Store, I spotted a large basket that didn't look familiar. I went running to it and excitedly picked it up. Turns out it was a prototype of a basket they didn't make. And it's even signed by one of the Longaberger family members!

I looked at the price tag. Stacy asked if I was going to get it. I replied, "I'd have to come live with you because this basket crosses the line of my husband's tolerance level of my addiction."

Just take a guess and we'll see who's the closest.

That building cracks me up! Last year as Tami and I were searching for it we laughed and laughed!

I much prefer Rachels jewelry but will guess the basket and 495.00

I was guessing a lower price because it was at the Factory Store and they do reduce the cost. Size wise the lg hamper basket new is $280. I don't think it looked to be as detailed as the Master's studio spiral at $750. So guess you are right - you wouldn't have to move away for a basket that was only $275 - maybe $375!!!!MOM
