Longaberger baskets are still considered collectible as of 2015 - in fact it was only recently that they came to be seen that way. Older and discontinued - or "retired" in the company's language - baskets are particularly in demand.
The original company remains in operation as of 2015, offering a "Collector's Club" to those that want the first opportunity to purchase new and exclusive Longaberger merchandise. The program runs on an annual subscription basis. Collectors are drawn to the American made products because each is hand woven one at a time and autographed by the weaver - no two are exactly alike. This makes collecting them fun, as there are always more to collect.
