    New store

    Good morning from a returning to green, instead of white Wisc, ๐Ÿ™‚

    All I can say is, that’s quite the store! Here in Wisc our Amish are way more conservative than in other states. Adding machines used manually with a lever, or battery ones, are the most common. The check-out ladies have flying fingers when the list is long! Have yet to see a ceiling fan in a store. It’d be nice on a hot day with a store full of people.

    When we go “Amishing” Erik as I’ve told you numerous times, what we encounter along the way is all part of the Amishing experience and remind ourselves where we are. Step back, slow down, and enjoy the day before returning to the fast lane of the cities we live in!

    It wasn’t too many years ago when I used a bathroom “inside” for the first time while visiting Amish friends! What a treat it was! Ha! And then to have running hot water in the tap…it was one new thing after another! Ha!

    Always fun to read a new post and the comments us reader share! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Laid Back Wisconsin Amish Store

      Terry, I enjoy the laid back style of the Wisconsin Amish in Dalton, Wisconsin. Mishler’s Country store is great!

        Shopping in Dalton

        Hey Jeff, We’re old patrons of Mishlers and the neighboring business for many years. We’ve trotted those back roads so often we don’t even get lost anymore! Ha! When encountering shoppers at Mishlers I often ask where they hail from. It’s surprising how far people travel for a sack of flour and some fun along the way! ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a bulk food store about 15 minutes from us, but what fun would that be to go get what you need and come home? When we head off to Kingston/Dalton its always a full day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Comment on B is for bargains! (April 25th, 2018 at 10:34)

    B is for bargains!

    I am drawn like a magnet to Amish Bent & Dent stores. I’ve only been to a coup!e of them, but walked out with bargains from both. I love finding unusual (read Amish ) staples that I’d never find in my own town. The baking aisles are especially interesting to me. Wish I could shop at them regularly.

    I guess you could say my Dad got me interested in bent + dents. He and his older brother, Uncle John, would make occasional runs to the Maxwell Street Market in Chicago, many years ago. He was proud of his bargains, though Ma was dubious. She was more of a “local” bargain hunter in our neighborhood. I guess bargain hunting runs in the family…other aunts, especially, were master bargain hunters. With some people, it’s more of a hobby!I

    The comment about it being an “Amish Costco” rings true!

    Thanks for letting us take a walk down the aisles with you, Erik!

      Comment on Maxwell St., Chicago. (April 27th, 2018 at 15:34)

      Maxwell St., Chicago.

      Oh the memories my brother and I have of Maxwell St! You could find anything there! We once saw an assortment of “merchandise” on display right on sidewalk. Among the goodies were a used set of false teeth. A customer was trying them on! Then there was the ever present polish sausages and trimmings! Loved them but please hold the hot peppers! I’ve never had such good polish sausage since then.

    Comment on Bacon (April 26th, 2018 at 01:11)

    Bacon

    Have you any REAL bacon? I don’t like wet cured bacon. I’d prefer a slab or side,as the trend is to thin slice. Skin on is preferred.
