As many people are discovering my blogs, I feel that I need to do a reintroduction to some who have been following me, while doing an introduction to others.
My name is Patricia Logan, owner of this blog, and an Independent Longaberger Home Consultant.   I will not get into my bio too much because you can read to the right of post, and I do not want bore you with the details.   My life is never boring, I just want to introduce you or reintroduce you to the company I represent.
The company’s name is officially called The Longaberger Company, according to the company and people who do the business end of things on Wall Street.   Just plain Longaberger will do for the rest of this post and throughout this blog.   The company will be 40 years old next year, and it was started by the late Dave Longaberger in 1973.   He actually started selling what is now known as the Medium Market Basket in his IGA store prior to the start of Longaberger.  You can read the rest of the history on my website,  To get to it, click the words “my shop” to get it. 
Today, Longaberger sells baskets, pottery, wrought iron, comfort foods, and home accent accessories.   According to the Direct Selling Association (DSA), Longaberger is listed as a home decor company. 
The pottery, Woven Traditions™, is one of the most sault after patterns in the U.S.A.   It is made of Vitrified pottery, which means it is doable and safe in the freezer, oven, microwave, and dishwasher.   Pottery colors are named
