Any Longaberger Basket Collectors Lurking

Made my daily stop at the SA today and picked up a basket I had sorta admired a couple of days ago....only I picked it up this time and could not believe my eyes! It is a 1994 signed Longaberger basket with fabric liner and plastic liner.....the basket is not soiled and neither is the fabric liner...the clear liner is slightly soiled, but a quick rinsing in hot sudsy water can take care of that!!!!!

Now, how do I identify it and find out it's value today?
Color me a tickled pink junker!

Hot Diggety Dog!!!! Like that basket.....now
this is something that will 'increase' in
value the longer you keep it.....not only a
good score, but a GREAT ONE!!!

Curosity got the best of me today because....months ago I had picked up a pie shaped piece of wood at the TS...which I noticed again this am on my hoosier cabinet shelf. Remembering it was stamped Longaberger...I began the search today.....and found this....another treasure! A bread basket divider..normally sold in a set of three... the value is $20.00

Now that is something I have never heard of....

Really kind of a cool piece, I am glad you have
it on display.

I started collecting vintage kitchen tools some
years ago, and one day I started using them, I
like knowing that I am using a kitchen tool that
a woman used years ago, they are nice and worn
and work wonderfully....to the point I don't
even use all those nice shiny stainless steel
ones of mine anymore. The eggbeaters have these
neat 'green' handles!!

Now, when I go to GS and fleamarkets I pick
them up....all the modern conveniences and I
like these....lol
