At last I found the place I was looking for! Here I met the delightful Rachel, a 20 year old Amish woman, barefoot, 5’2″, and slender. She showed me to “the store,” which was in their cellar. What an organized operation.
As I left the shop I inquired about the barn next to the house. Rachel gave me a tour. Here two of her brothers worked.
Made a wrong turn while looking for the Amish gal who sold soap, lotion, and candles. Often in my travels when I make a wrong turn I come across something fascinating, and this was the case here.
Herman and his wife Emma, were pleasant and told me the soap vendor was their next door neighbor. While they had birdhouses, secret boxes, and buggies for sale, unfortunately, I was not in the market for those items.
They allowed me to take pictures of their operation, and Herman has quite a business. I spoke of Mark’s Tack Shop I visited in Pennsylvania and he was quite interested, so I mailed him a copy of the blog and the shop’s contact information.
Here are some pictures of his business.
Should you be in the market for a wagon or buggy, secret box, or birdhouse here is Herman’s contact information:
While the Amish lack phone connection this young Amish man has quite a business. When I inquired about how he finds buyers, he stated they stop by, and I have a sign. It seems to be working..
The homes range in price with the storage home on the left $5500, the middle home, which has electric and a rear area for storage and bathroom, $16,900, and the brown storage area about $5000. They are well constructed and believe these were the prices he stated but don’t hold me to it.
