Longaberger Basket...

Do you collect these?
Are you familiar with them?

I have a few that my sister has gifted to me.
And then I have a few that... well,
I find in thrift stores...
like this one!
Love the price!
The basket is about 4 inches tall and
with the handle about 8 inches total.

Yes, I have some of these various pieces. I have a Kleenex holder and sleigh for the holidays. I did not get too many things as I thought they were pricey. I went to a party in a home.

Cute little basket. I don't collect baskets though I do like them. I am a bit of a pack rat and am trying to declutter and simplify.

What a lucky find. I found one in a thrift store that was not Longaberger but was probably done by a former employee of the company. It was at a thrift store not all that far from where Longaberger is made and was a very similar style. I paid $3 plus for it.

The friends we visit in Ohio introduced us to Longaberger. She has lots of their baskets and crockery. We were also lucky enough to receive a few decorations as Christmas gifts. I really like their products. Your basket is particularly lovely!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
