    I’ll have to put that area on my wish list of places to visit!! The furniture is beautiful and I’d love to have some of it in my home. Kevin – didn’t you post a video or other pictures from that furniture maker in the past? I remember seeing other pieces of his work and remember how beautiful and well made it looked. Thanks for sharing your secret places with us! 🙂

    Is Hardin County a relatively new settlement for the Amish, say within the last 20 years ?

    My relatives now see a lot more Amish in general around west central Ohio in the last 10 years, including a both north and south of Grand Lake Saint Marys, some north and west of Celina and others south of the Lake. I haven’t heard how much of roadside business any of these folks have however.

      Sara I wouldn’t say it’s that new (someone correct me if I am wrong), however, you are correct the Amish settlements there have grown a lot the past decade. And as farming as become less and less viable, the Amish have become more visible with more home-based businesses. – Kevin

    We would love to see the video and also Kevin, do they ever do any shipping? We are just to far away for shopping on site but would love to have a few of their pieces. They are all beautiful in the photo.
