Live Real. Eat Real.

A Tisket, A Tasket

A Longaberger basket.

Longanberger Headquarters

Just one of the many interesting sights you can see in Ohio – the headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company.

Yes, this is a real, honest-to-goodness building.

For more Travel Tip Thursday, head on over and visit Pseudonymous High School Teacher.  I’d tell you she’s a peach, but since she’s in Hawaii, I guess that makes her a pineapple.   Either way, she’s just darn sweet.

I always thought Ohio was weird. Now I have evidence.

Lori says:

At first I thought you were just kidding about it being the actual building…lol. I love their baskets but only have a couple. My sister has tons of them. And yes Pseudo is a pineapple!

Jane Gaston says:

OMG, I’d love to see that for real, just to see how they worked the architecture and structure! Amazing!

That’s a building??
Way cool.

I had no idea that’s what the building looks like. I always wanted to go there.
.-= Rebecca´s last blog ..Think Pink =-.

I’ve seen that building showcased before on the Food Network I think. So cool! My mom covets their baskets.

It’s important to think ahead. You can’t really tell in this picture, but the handle is in desperate need of a paint job. Just how WOULD you paint the handles? Suspend a painter by helicopter? From a really HUGE crane (and it really is huge)? How much would that cost? Apparently, a lot! I think they should have designed it so the handles swing down like on a real pic-a-nic basket!

LPC says:

Why do I have a feeling that these basket are the tip of the iceberg for an entire way of life?
.-= LPC´s last blog ..An Actual Answer To The Julia Child’s Monogrammed Pin Question =-.

Yep – it’s in OH – I should know, I live here. And when you first see it it’s amazing how huge it is and it truly looks like a basket, not a building. They have a whole town right down the road in Dresden that sells all sorts of accessories – it’s quite the market. I have collected many over my life but they’re getting too pricey for me now. Even though you can never have enough baskets… 🙂

What?? Are you kidding me? I thought it was a model or something. So…I guess that means those are actual trees too.

So is Longaberger like Pampered Chef or Avon? I saw references to Home Consultant and “Host a party”.

Are you a Longaberger Lady?

Personally, I’d like to have a school shaped like a set of books. Wouldn’t that be cool?!

Pseudo says:

I was ready to comment about the basket building, but Beth has me caught up in a visionof a school shaped like books….

Thanks for naming me a pineapple ; -) May think about that if ever I redesign da blog.

Raven says:

Wow, I had no idea that was a real building when I first saw the pic. That’s pretty cool.

I’ve seen that picture and am still amazed by it…one of these days I’d love to take a trip just to visit that building! 🙂

Pseudo is a sweet pineapple, isn’t she? 🙂
