Pottery Progress At Longaberger

Project Eagle

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 info@longaberger.com.

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

Holiday Premiere Shares Spirit Of The Season!

September is always a time to celebrate with Longaberger! It’s the launch of our Fall-Winter WishList®, and it’s the beginning of our Holiday selling season. We think you will agree, we have a wonderful selection of Fall and Holiday items available now, and it’s just going to keep getting better with our November and December selections!

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.

We’d also like to recognize the inspirational women who have supported and continue to support those living with the cancer along their journey. You can help with the celebration by nominating women in your life who embody these qualities. Please e-mail your name, address and phone along with the name, address and phone number of your nominee to thinkpink@longaberger.com by September 24, 2012.
