Longaberger Holiday & Collector's Club Baskets

I'm trying to make storage room for all my stamp stuff, and I have a number of Longaberger holiday and Collector's Club baskets that are taking up a good deal of the space I'd like to use. I love the baskets, but I don't end up really using them, and as a result, they've only been displayed a few times (in my non-smoking home). So, I thought maybe I'd share pictures of what I have, and see if any of you might like to give them a good home. I am only too happy to provide courtesy gift-wrapping, complete with "do not open 'til Christmas" tags on the package, along with a custom hand-stamped holiday card, upon request.

I'm not going to sell them directly from my blog, you'll have to email me and let me know what you want. The prices listed are my idea of what they are worth--feel free to make an alternate offer. I intend to charge only the exact shipping amount to get your baskets to you, on top of the agreed upon price(s). Please make sure you ask any pertinent questions before you commit to any purchase. Each basket comes with relevant documentation brochures and certificates, and these are in mint condition.

Here are pictures of some of the baskets I have...please click on any of them to see larger, more detailed images:
