The Last of My Longaberger Items
I have been collecting Longaberger since 1989, which I call the "Days With Dave". Back then, everything was made in the USA that Longaberger sold. Today, everything with the exception of a few regular line pottery pieces and baskets are outsourced. Thankfully, I have collected over 300 baskets while everything was made in the USA and I love looking at them and I appreciate them. I acquired many of them by being a consultant. I used much of my earnings and hostess benefits to achieve my collection. I have one last tote and checkbook left in my store. Now, everyone has the ability to purchase from The Homestead via online and it has hurt Longaberger's consultants' sales and price and demand rule has proven obvious. Hence, I have stopped purchasing Longaberger, unless I can find a wonderful deal on a few items here on eBay.
