Shipshewana, IN

Half of the showroom at Lambright Comfort Chairs
What a great day we had today. Our friends and listeners Bill and Kris Osborne have come to visit with us here in Howe, IN.  We went to Lambrights Comfort Chairs to check out some chairs for the rig. Our Poang chairs have big foot stools and it takes up to much space. So, we are chair shopping again. Love the chairs but we will wait until next year to purchase them. This year the dinette gets changed out, from a booth type to a credenza. I can hardly wait. It will help us to get more organized and having Focalwood do the job is exciting. The Amish owner of Focalwood, Carlyle Lehman is a real craftsman. Nick and Terry Russell had work done in their rig and it is beautiful. Anyway, back to yesterday, we continued on to Shipshewana and went to Yoder’s marketplace. Fresh cheese, hormone free meats, and fried pies. Yummm. I bought bacon, cheese and popcorn. I love popcorn. So tonight I will be having great popcorn. We went on to The Blue Gate Restaurant for a wonderful lunch and John wanted to get a Carrot cake. I love looking around in shops and places like that. It’s easy not to buy things because I don’t have any more room to store anything. Living in the RV with the limited space makes it easy to say no to more “stuff”.  Although it is time to start thinking about Christmas presents for friends and family. There is a big craft sale this weekend at Shipshewana and we will go to that.  Bill and Kris treated us to a Amish buggy ride. WOW they are really first class. Comfortable seats, insulated inside and the turn signals and light switches are located over the drivers head. It was fun and the driver gave us a little history of the town. Have a great day Happy Camping.

This looks like the one!

Or maybe this one with electric recline.

Cool table

  1. You're in one of our favorite places! We have chairs from Lambright (replaced our uncomfortable sofa with 2 recliners), and Carlyle did all of the modifications we made in our rig's garage area. The meat at Yoders' is about the best we've ever had, but for a real treat, stop at E & S Bulk Foods downt he road a bit! We also absolutely love the popcorn at the Yoder popcorn store (just down the road from Lambright)! Another great restaurant is the 5 & 20; they have an excellent buffet on flea market days. Great food and not nearly as expensive as the touristy restaurants!

  2. Wow! How fun. I look forward to getting to Amish country sometime. And finding healthy food on the road - always a challenge.

  3. Excellent area to be in, we have bought our Lambright comfort chair love seat a couple of years ago, very glad we did. Are ya planning to go to the Newmar factory tour? We did, very interesting, wish they made a floor plan we liked.

  4. That 70's chair is quite an eye catcher. Was it the same price as the ones that are earth tones colors?
