The most popular RoadsideWonder (both in hits and in submissions) returns again.

Jo, Ice, and Suz are back to share a totally new way view the giant Longaberger basket. I’ve never seen an image of it in the dark! How cozy the offices look with the their lights streaming out of the basket-weave.

Okay, so how TOTALLY cool would it be to work inside of a basket?!

The Longaberger Headquarters is our most popular RoadsideWonder! Here is our latest view, submitted by Kath. Can you spot her bike? LOL

Mark says:
Here is a picture of the Longaberger Basket Headquarters located in Newark, Ohio. It’s a 7 story building. The giant handles are heated in the winter to prevent ice buildup. My wife, Karen, and I had heard about this giant basket and decided to find it on a trip to the Honda Homecoming.

Big thanks go out to Mark … the Longaberger HQ has been on my list of “things-to-do” for several years and fate hasn’t made it happen for me yet! This is Mark’s first Roadside Wonder submission and I hope he comes back again with more 🙂

    Wow! What an amazing building!!!!

  3. Sadly, I’ve been here. My mum used to be a huge Longaberger fanatic. PS…now a follower thanks to Swap-Bot. I’ve got a good Roadside Wonder if you don’t already have it, but not an original photo.

    It’s about 20 minutes from me. I should have my DH get a nice pic for you.

      Hey TPT 🙂

      He’s actually on my “to do” map! (I created a giant Streets&Trips map of all of the places that I’d like to add some day). Unless I win the lottery and can travel all of the time, it will take me years! LOL

      If your DH gets a chance to snap a pic for me that would be totally awesome (oops! the 80’s teenager came out in me again)

    Oh my gosh–this is awesome! HA!

    My m-i-l and her sister and crazy about longaberger, I wonder if they know about this place?

  6. Pattie says:

    WOW!!
    I never even knew something like that existed!
    Architecture is amazing, it’s unrealistic the things that they can build 🙂

    And, I thought it was pretty cool that they heat the handles in the winter!

    (structuedchaos from swap-bot) I follow your blog now 🙂 through blogger!

    When I was 13 my mother and her two friends dragged me to go see this and then have a basket-themed weekend. The area around this place is filled with little shops for collectors, the benches are filled with husbands waiting for their wives to finish shopping. I met a lot of awesome old men on those benches, but dang was that a loooong 10 hour ride to get there.
