Here is a rare opportunity to add one of the first Tour baskets offered by Longaberger and signed by the family members listed above.
This basket was available for purchase only through the Longaberger store that was located in Dresden, Ohio on Main Street in 1989.
26 years ago on a Saturday morning after attending a meeting for Consultant's in Dresden, my sister and I went to the Longaberger Village Etc. Shop. It was just a small shop on Main Street in Dresden. Dave's sister Ginny was running the cash register that day and Grandma Bonnie was sitting in a chair at the front of the store keeping her company. While we were paying for our purchases Dave walked in; we were able to chat with him for awhile and he signed our baskets. We also asked Bonnie to sign them and she carefully and neatly signed her whole name. Dave said "I keep telling Mom to just sign Bonnie!" It was indeed a simpler time to be associated with Longaberger in the earlier days!
Tami, Rich & Joanne signed the basket at a later date at another event for Consultant's.
It's time for me to allow someone else to own this very special Longaberger treasure.
Please view the pictures and ask questions as this is a final sale offering. I have ten pictures in this listing with closeups of the signatures. Click on the arrows under the picture above left to view the other photos, click on the photos to supersize them for a closer look.
This basket is in very good condition, it was briefly displayed then stored. Also included is the original product card and a plastic protector.
There are no chipped or broken splints, it has the earlier dark stain and Longaberger logo stamp on the bottom with one oak swinging handle.
This will be shipped insured and with signature of receipt required.
