Have You Seen These (Longaberger) Baskets?

You won't believe what Handy Man bought for me the other day.  Three Longaberger baskets, at a flea market.  For $20!  

I love me some Longaberger baskets.  I have one for my recipes, and I have two Christmas baskets.

Have you ever seen these baskets before?  They are stamped "1999" on the bottom, if that helps.


Twenty. Bucks!  One has a wood lid, two have fabric liners, and one (the blue one on the right) has a plastic liner as well. 

For any of you who have bought Longaberger before, you know how expensive it is.  These are in like-new condition. 

I'm not sure what I'll do with them, but I'm happy with them.  I have some other Longaberger baskets.

Brownie points for Handy Man!

I have the round one - I think it was called the Daisy basket. I use it for storing colored pencils on top of my computer desk hutch. The big rectangle looks like a Small Gathering basket, the wood lid on top is designed to use in the car between the seats, I think. Not sure on the third one, maybe a tea basket? But you're looking at well over $100 retail just for the baskets, not even counting the liners and plastic protectors.

Which is of course why I have way more Longaberger baskets than I need - I can't bear to think about how much I paid for them when deciding how much to try to sell them for on eBay. :(

I love Longaberger- we have a ton, because my mom was a consultant for 14 years- put my brother and I through college. $20 is an AWESOME deal! Good thing your hubby knows what to look for!

I use the basket that looks kind of like a cone for pens and hang it from a peg. :) Have fun!!

I like the one with the lid. My first thought was it looks like something for the car, and it that's what Nicole confirmed.

How cool to have a hubby who knows what you want and takes action about that! Are you spoiled yet?
