Giant basket.

House-Sized Wicker Basket

We were interested to see all of the giant Longaberger baskets. This basket sits in the middle of a small town, looking deserted and falling apart. What a shame. I find them unique. Drive slow on Main Street or you will drive right past it.

Basket as big as a house.

House-sized Picnic Basket

This was fun. The whole town is in love with baskets. Just park and walk around and you will know what I am talking about very quickly.

Original Basket HQ

Longaberger House-sized Basket

The original headquarters for Longaberger Baskets. Labor Day weekend they have a nice car show for free on Main Street.

Big Basket

In Dresden, a favorite tourists "must-get-your-picture-a-takin' beside" attraction is a big ol' picnic basket...big as a small house! And if that's not enough to quench your basket-thirst...take a short drive to Newark, OH and check out an even B-i-i-i-ggggggger basket!!! This basket is actually a building shaped like a huge basket right along side the highway.(nice basket!) This basket/building was the headquarters of Longaberger Baskets (the booming home party basket business that makes women cuckoo nutty!).
