Pottery Progress At Longaberger
By now, all Home Consultants who turned in orders for Made in America Pottery have received an email from Longaberger President Mike Trempe explaining the situation and offering our apology. Attached to that email was a letter from Mike for the customer(s) affected. In addition to sending the letter, we have generated a coupon for every customer to credit back the difference in price between the Made in America and internationally sourced pottery. Although we believe that most customers will elect to receive the internationally sourced item(s) we will happily replace or exchange the piece(s) at the request of your customer(s).
We will begin shipping the internationally sourced pottery that we have in-stock on Monday, September 23. Any requests for exchanges or refunds should be initiated by then by contacting Longaberger Consultant Care at 740-322-7878 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Order Pottery Arrives
The vast majority of your long-awaited Special Order Pottery has arrived at our warehouse and it’s all hands on deck! Company President Mike Trempe and members of the Home Office team have joined forces with the talented shipping team working around the clock to ensure that no time is wasted in getting these items pulled, packed and shipped to your customers. We sincerely THANK YOU and your customers again for your patience as we awaited the arrival of these special order pieces! Click to view video

Martha Stewart Likes Longaberger – That’s A Good Thing!
ABC News online recently ran this story about celebrity and multimedia mogul Martha Stewart.
While Stewart is known to own multiple residences, many fans were unaware that the domestic doyenne also owned a “basket house.” For the uninitiated, a basket house is a place where one stores decades upon decades’ worth of baskets one has collected. “After getting married, I began collecting these useful forms of art in earnest,” wrote Stewart on The Martha Blog, who detailed the contents of the basket house in an accompanying slideshow on Thursday.
Not everyone may have a basket house, but Stewart is not alone in her hobby. Basket collecting continues to be a popular pastime in the U.S., with fans devoted to everything from modern Longaberger Baskets to antique Shaker models. A rare example of the latter fetched $63,000 at an auction in Chatham, N.Y., according to The Journal of Antiques and Collectibles.
Something To Huff About!
Huffington Post Travel recently tweeted a link to their piece, “22 Reasons The Midwest Is Best,” and while we’re fond of them all, we especially like #12 and think you’ll agree – check it out here.

Longaberger is on the fast track down under. Our extended family continues to grow as New Home Consultants are joining our international team in Australia. Those new Home Consultants, along with all of our new customers, love Longaberger’s product line and can’t wait to get more!

Get Noticed! With The Longaberger Rewards Program
You are at the grocery store and ready to pay at the check-out. You pull out your new Longaberger credit card, push the blue button and swipe it at the cashier station. Almost instantly, the woman behind you in line says “Wow, what kind of card is that?” And there is opportunity knocking!
The Longaberger Rewards Program, featuring a credit card that lights up and lets you earn credit toward Longaberger Rewards with every purchase, is drawing attention from Longaberger Home Consultants and the national media.
More than 700 Home Consultants have already applied for the Longaberger Rewards card. The benefits are amazing!
- You (and your hosts and customers) earn Longaberger Rewards (and 50+ other rewards, including air miles or even cash back) for something you are already doing — using a credit card, at a gas station, a grocery store … wherever.
- You earn those rewards faster and at a higher rate than most cards. Earn 1.5% per $1,000 on the no-fee card and 3% on the fee card!
- It’s a terrific business building tool! When the card lights up, it is a sure conversation starter wherever you are.
- When your hosts or customers sign up, they will redeem their Longaberger Rewards with you, and that means steady repeat business.
Fox News was captivated by the Longaberger Rewards Program card, and featured it and the company who created it, Dynamics, Inc., on its web site. Click here to see.
