Longaberger Basket Building

The Longaberger family eventually grew to include 12 children - six boys and six girls. Bonnie worked full time at the woolen mill to help make ends meet and the older children helped their father by making basket bottoms, carefully arranging the upsplints for pottery Ware Baskets and even selling baskets to the neighbors.

I wish they made giant sandwiches inside

"If they can put a man on the moon, they can certainly build a building that's shaped like a basket." - Dave Longaberger, Founder
