    Where do Amish go shopping? (February 8th, 2012 at 15:14)

    We were back around Hutchinson, KS (our “hometown”) over the holidays to visit family and saw many Amish people and Old Order Mennonites in the town’s mall and at Walmart. We had forgotten just how many shop in town. However, you don’t see the horse and buggies usually — most come with non-Amish friends who drive, or hire a driver.

    We also drove over to Yoder, KS (an Amish area) and stopped in at several of their stores. It is always fun to do that — you see lots of things not usually seen in hardware stores for sure!

    One of our favorite pieces of furniture is a jelly cabinet we bought in Yoder the first year we were married (33 yrs. ago). The piece is just beautiful, and has held up over several moves to many different states over the years.

    Great article, Erik!

    "Welcome To The Amish People"

    The Amish have moved into our area and I love seeing them and their buggies.I so love them.I read all about them in books and have learned what good people they are.I welcome them with open arms into our communities of Pittsfield and Edmeston, New York and a few others in other towns near by.I look forward to hopefully having them in my town of Columbus, NY soon.
