Longaberger Basket, Newark, Ohio





such a cool sight to see a "Longaberger basket" high in the sky. the bits in the middle are windows. it does need some work, the basket is showing some age. a bit vintage. i wonder what it looks like from inside? this is their corporate offices. no visiting that we know of. . . it was on our path while on our trip through Ohio. you would think they would have a museum of all their baskets since beginning of their brand/business. do you have any Longaberger baskets? i was given one for a wedding present. i do know folks that have them all over their homes. trash cans, bread box, for a covered dish meal, for your toilet paper, tissue box, for keeping magazines straight, & laundry. pics taken May 2014.

The Basket makes an impressive "find." It's a first for me to learn of it.

Oh my, this is exactly the type of site I seek out in our travels. We've yet made it as far as Ohio. Someday. So cool, thanks for showing this.

That's unexpected! I don't think I've ever heard the term in baskets before.

My son used to live in Columbus, Ohio, so I've seen the Longaberger Basket building (from the outside). That was several years ago, so the building was in good shape then.

Isn't that the coolest thing? I've seen it, such fun.

Enie Dub said...

Wow that is amazing! It's a building!!!

We do not have these baskets in Ireland.

Well, that must have been something to see. I am not a Longaberger basket collector, but I know plenty others that are!!

I'd love to see the headquarters live. The baskets are nice but a little pricy, maybe a lot pricey.

Ponder this if you will:

the state of VIRGINIA: it is my home, my HEART, my life ... where i was born & where i will forever live. when i leave my she (my home) misses me ...she loves me & owns me.

the state of WEST VIRGINIA: it is my lung ...without West VA i could not breathe, i would not continue on. gorgeous. a state worth it's name in gold. have you been there? if not ...make your way immediately. so worth the trip. the folks who are West Virginians are hard work, miners & deserve much respect. get between them & their work & you will be finding yourself with a kick in the butt. make fun of West VA, and you have seriously crossed me, so watch out!

the state of MONTANA: i went there for the 1st time in the 90's. & i was smitten. love at 1st sight. it is BIG SKY COUNTRY. & that ain't no lie. gorgeous. photo worthy. unbelievable. when i get there she breathes a sigh of relief. she misses me when i am gone. like family. my best friend. clear air. perfect it all it's glory!!! (a clear 2nd to MONTANA would be the state of WYOMING.)

CANADA - i have been 3 times now, all to different area ... & before you get your panties in a bunch Mrs. U.S.A. i do have you let you know i am having a love affair with Canada. i think i need duel citizenship. i am that hook!! no kidding. ( :

if you live in Kansas or North Dakota, please email (elizardbreathspeaks@gmail.com) me at tell me where you live & why you love it? how did you get there? through marriage or parents or what? i so want to know. thanks!! ( :

where do you live & why do you love it? tell me. i would love to listen. we are always looking for great NEW places that are "must sees" in your state.

big big hugs. ( :
