Members of the Upper Lehigh Historical Society had a Longaberger basket sale on March 18 at the Schnecksville Grange.
All the baskets were donated by Gail Miller of Pennsville, N.J.
Miller, a descendant of the Schneck family, as her mother was a Schneck, was raised in Bernville, Berks County.
A Longaberger stylist in her spare time, Miller accumulated many sample baskets.
Basket sale proceeds will help fund repairs to the roof of the original Schneck Log House, across from Weis market, Schnecksville.
