Ohio Amish Country part 2 inside Lehmans

Lehman's storefront. Even on a Thursday the place was pretty busy. I'm thinking it's busy jut about every day. I spent a whole $6 that day, but oh how tempting it was to purchase more.

Here we have your choice of dutch ovens.


And here is just about any type of cookie cutter one might want.

Then there were vintage style signs.

And Amish baskets. Check out that pot bellied stove...fancy!

High above this display was this display of old wash tubs.


And then there was enamel ware...


and more enamel ware. Oooh I just love this stuff, probably because I grew up with it.


On to the pottery...


and some from Germany that was just too beautiful.


We ate lunch inside the hardware at the Cast Iron Cafe. J got bread and water since she was locked up. :)


Who wouldn't love a good warm soak in this copper tub? Ahhh, but a girl can dream.


Wood cook stoves...this is maybe half of those on display at Lehmans.


and of course I had to include a picture of my dream stove.


On the way out this Smart car caught my eye. Smart!

Part 3 with more of Holmes county to come!

  3. Hi Carolyn - We're fortunate to be so near Lehmans. I've been there twice recently and still am sure I've missed some things. No joke! Have fun with the give away!!

    Hi Don and welcome. Thanks so for visiting. Yes, those are all wood cook stoves. The store has another large room of nothing but wood heating stoves. If I photographed everything they have it would take days to show it all.

  9. What an awesome place! I miss the Amish/Mennonite stores. In Virginia, there is such a large community and the evidence is everywhere. I miss the cooking and the buggy parking areas.

    thank you for yuor kind and comforting words on the adoption post.

    In friendship,
    Lacy
