  • The building is interesting from the "Big .... " type theme but it is now out of use and is showing it. The paint is fading, weeds are growing and all that I remember from 10 years ago. The homestead ...  more »
  • No new products offered, was really disappointed, we were the only people in the entire building other than maybe 3 employees. Not the shining star it was a few years ago when it would take hours to go through the homestead main store. Very disappointing after driving 4.5 hours for nothing. Please update the web page to give an accurate description of what is now the reality.
  • I visited the homestead August 31, 2017. While the place isn't the same as the bustling 20 years ago, it's so worth a visit. The wares are still gorgeous and hand crafted in this age of throw away junk. I made a basket with Michelle and it was a fantastic experience. Go with an open mind to change and you won't be disappointed. I do suggest you eat first, there is limited choices for food in the area.
  • like the largest ball of twine...the largest basket in the world is sure to amaze...for like 5 seconds...and then you will say..."huh....that's a big basket." about Longaberger baskets...actually world-famous....they are really nice baskets...durable...and will last a life time. They're also expensive and have limited functionality....except for decoration or a fancy picnic.
  • It was okay if I was not near the place I probably would not of stopped. Definitely was not what it was bragged up to be. When you hear the name Longanberger you think nice it was kind of a disappointment from the ruts in the parking lots to where you enter then you go to another building to shop. Staff was pleasant and was helpful.
  • I really enjoyed it here but sadly felt the faded glory of Longaberger. The mini "amusement park" is excellent for photo, especially the huge apple basket. Gift shop is pricey but some discounted item is amazing (look for the discounted basket liner). Good choice for wedding if your family & friends are close by or don't mind a bit driving.
