I live in Baltimore, and am interested in buying some Amish furniture- in particular, a dining room table and some chairs. My husband and I are considering going up to Lancaster for a day and see what we can get, specifically if there are any good deals to be found locally, vs. buying off the internet.
Many of the internet sites we've seen are based out of ohio or indiana, and shipping can easily be 20% of your order. So, we're also thinking that getting something shipped from lancaster (if we can't borrow a van) will be considerably less.
Is anyone familiar with any shops that might be worth looking at or an "Amish furniture outlet" type of place that we might find a that have a good selection of items?
