    Thanks for posting the photos. We had our first snow of the season here in central NC, and there’s not much to do except stay inside and work on the internet. At least it gives me something to look at. Wish we had one of these nearby.

    Comment on Nice job with this post Erik........ (February 20th, 2012 at 08:17)

    Nice job with this post Erik........

    Nice job with the pictures Erik and in fact I’m going to BB’s today to buy some orange juice and a few other things I’m sure. From looking at this business at a distance you wouldn’t really think that it is Amish owned and run, until you pull into the parking lot and notice those outside gas lamps and then you will think to yourself “something is really different about this place”. I had asked a young Amish girl who was working in the store if i could see the manager, so she let him know i had a question for him. I waited what must have been 25 mins and i then thought “this is not happening” and i headed for the door to leave , as i was almost outside the store the Amish manager was running behind me and told me it was ok to snap some shots. So many folks have talked about this place which is located close to my own home, yet I’ve never seen any images of it until now! Richard

    Nice job with this post Erik........

    B & B

    Because of a post here last year, when I was in Pa. last Sept, I took an afternoon and went to this store. Really enjoyed the experience, and the “cold locker” or walk-in refridgerator was neat. I remember that they had flowers, cheeses, all kinds of thing in there. And it was VERY cold.

    There is a great store that sits beside this one that has lovely things for the home.

    The scenery on the ride over, the country, everything made this an enjoyable afternoon–and not much money spent.

      Where is it?

      OK – I’m reading all these posts about this Amish store in LEbanon County. I live in Lebanon County and never heard of it! Where in Lebanon County is it? Can you give me a name of a town it is near, or is that giving away too much information? I’d like to check it out! Thanks! Whoever wrote that Lebanon County is a beautiful place to live was right on! The farms are beautiful and rolling hills and open fields lovely. I see Amish buggies go by my house every day, which is still fun to see after being here almost 25 years! I grew up in Lancaster County so I know about the commercialism of the Amish there. I’ll take Lebanon any day over Lancaster!

      Where is it?

    Comment on Hello Loretta.... (February 20th, 2012 at 09:03)

    Hello Loretta....

    Hi Loretta and I’m glad you had a nice time in my neck of the woods of Lebanon counties Amish community. I had passed BB’s by so many times without ever stopping in, so I’m glad this time i had the sense to at least give it a look after hearing about it for some time now. Lebanon county to me anyway really is very beautiful and has a very charming Amish settlement, and like Erik has said its much smaller compared to the Amish settlement in Lancaster county, but its also un-spoiled and we like it that way. So the Amish move about here more naturally and without worries from tour buses’ and droves of tourist, so lets please keep this as our little secret! Richard

    Hello Loretta....

    Comment on Richard, are you serious? (February 20th, 2012 at 13:24)

    Richard, are you serious?

    Really, Richard, you think we can keep a secret? lol
    Seriously, I did not realize this was in Lebanon County
    because it’s not far from Strasburg. I go to an Amish
    farm on my way there that does woodwork as I had bought a nice rocking horse for my granddaughters and I like to see what
    else they have. Then I went to Goodes store, found my
    way over the B & Bs, looked in the home decor shop awhile,
    then found my way over to Georgetown to the Hometown Kitchen,
    had a wonderful meal, what they call the “wedding meal”,
    stopped at Kings on the corner–then went back to my bed
    and breakfast.

    A perfect day, I’d say. Hoping to do it again this year.

    Richard, are you serious?

    Comment on I'm hardly ever serious Loretta,lol (February 20th, 2012 at 14:48)

    I'm hardly ever serious Loretta,lol

    I’m hardly ever serious Loretta,lol, but yes folks know that their are other Amish settlement’s in other countie’s besides Lancaster. And i know some people dog Lancaster a little for being too commercialized and changing in the wrong direction, but as I’ve said before I’m still bullish on the place and think its still a very beautiful place to live and visit. So i would say Lancaster is evolving more than changing, and after all aren’t we ourselves changing just a little in some ways as we get older. So considering I’m someone who hates getting serous, that was pretty serous,lol. Richard

    I'm hardly ever serious Loretta,lol

    Richard; You didn’t mention the exact location of this BB’s store but it looks like the one in Schaefferstown. I think Loretta is referring to the BB’s store in Quarryville by the way she’s explaining things.

    Quarryville

    Yes, I was referring to the one in Quarryville. I just assumed that this was the one. I knew the outside picture didn’t look real familiar, but I thought maybe I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it.

    Thanks, Debbie Welsh.
