Yesterday I stopped at an Estate Sale. Ok, for one thing, it's Sunday. I don't bother saling on Sundays. Everything is usually all picked over anyway. But an Estate Sale that has been going on for quite a few days... come on, what could possibly be left? Umm, well... like the mother lode of Longaberger loveliness!! Seriously, I hit the jack pot!
As I was getting out of my van, the lady yells that everything is half-off the sticker price. I immediately eye the four Longaberger baskets and proceed to knock over a couple kids that are in my way. (just kidding!) I make my way over to quickly glance at the prices. Let me just say, I would have paid the sticker prices. So I start to freak out... discreetly, mind you. I don't want to act like I am excited or anything.
So I end up getting ALL four baskets for... $15.00!!! You heard me right! FIFTEEN DOLLARS!
I happen to own two other Longaberger baskets. One I paid a quarter for, the other full price. So I think I can safely say that I have a little collection going on here. Mmm, pretty sweet!
For all you Longaberger buffs... the Generation basket is from 1998... the other three are from '92, '91 & '94. Again, pretty dang sweet!
