check out lehmans.com

I don't remember if they have wood stoves but they have tons of ammish living things.

You can get a catalogue for 3$

The Amish have their own newspaper called The Budget. It includes newsy notes about the going-on's of various Amish/Mennonite communities throughout North America. It also has ads for stoves, fabric, etc. Maybe google it...I'm not sure how to order it.

Also, have you read Countryside magazine? It's awesome! Lots of homesteading articles in it. Available at Barnes and Noble or through subscription. My most recent mag has ads for chicken de-plucking, woodstoves, corn burners, etc. It's a great read

This looks great. Bummer that the paper catalog is $5. For some reason I like browsing a "real" catalog instead on online.

Lehmans and Cumberland used to include "$5.00 off" coupons in the back of the catalog to recoup the cost. I'm not sure if they still do though.

I live near a big Amish community and they seem to do most of their shopping at Wal-mart or Aldi. When we first moved here, I was kind of surprised to see the Amish buying cases of formula, disposable diapers, and all kinds of frozen and processed foods. I guess I'm used to it now.

I also live near Lehman's. I've only been there a few times but it is a neat store. It seemed pretty expensive though, probably most of the Amish can't afford to shop there!

My Lehmans catalog has a picture of their parking lot full of buggys.
Wal-mart doesn't sell composting toilets, and propane refrigerators.

The Budget actually has a website: http://www.thebudgetnewspaper.com/

DH and I have been mentioned in it a few times when we visit different churches.

Lehman's has a good selection of woodstoves (pricey!), but the catalog is expensive. If you order something from them, mention you want a paper catalog, and they'll send you one for free if you buy something else. Otherwise, it's $5.

GVS is REALLY good, they don't have woodstoves, but they have a ton of other useful things. The Gohn Bros (http://gohnbrothers.com/) catalog has very few pictures, but their prices are good- they do sell a lot of clothes, but also some really good hard-to-find supplies. Also, their service is incredible- we order from them from FL and always get our order (UPS) within 7 days.

Also, the Murray McMurray hatchery (http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/) has a bunch of good stuff, and a free catalogue. Lots of folks from our church order their birds, and that's where we'll be getting ours as soon as we move.

Oh, also... Lehman's has a book you can order of where to find hard-to-get items for $3. If you order it, they'll probably send you their catalogue for free.

Here's the book: http://www.lehmans.com/shopping/prod...=1&keyword=LEL

I am not sure if you are refering to the Lehmans site or not, but just to clarify, that store isn't from the Amish, it's for the Amish.

I would venture to guess that the people you all saw in WalMart are some order of Mennonite and not Amish.

OP- is there a population of amish or mennonite in your area? If so, there is most likely a brick & mortar store that caters to them nearby.

OT:Nope they are Amish, they pull their buggies up the big hill to get to Wal-mart.

They also spray their crops with chemicals...... But maybe I'm surrounded by reformed ones

Not ALL Amish are like this but there are quite a few.
