I did do some or a lot of shopping while in Shipshewana. My favorite place to stop first is Lolly’s. Lolly’s is a quilt shop located in the Davis Mercantile building. Lolly’s is the main quilt shop, but then has several smaller specialty shops in the building.
Inside. It’s just beautiful.
Inside Lolly’s. I LOVE this shop!!
This is Lolly’s At Home. It’s a shop across the hall from Lolly’s where you can purchase quilts that have been hand quilted by the Amish. Just gorgeous!!
Next I like to visit Yoder’s Department Store down the road. It’s one stop shopping!! Quilt shop, clothing, grocery and hardware.
Yoder’s prices are so great!! The sale on Saturday was 20% off everything. Fabric is normally $7.95 yd., so that made fabric only $6.36 yd.!!! I scored some nice French General Fabric!! The sale only goes from 8-10 AM, so you need to pre-shop the store, so you know exactly what you want Saturday morning. The cutting line is crazy!! 🙂 All good fun, though!! BTW, the sale at Lolly’s starts at 6 AM! It goes until 9 AM. The crazy things quilters will do for a great sale. Shop in the early hours of the morning in our pajamas! LOL!
We also shopped all the cute little shops too! All this shopping really makes you work up an appetite! 🙂
There are so many wonderful things about Shipshewana. The Amish, the shopping, the food, the scenery and oh, did I mention the food?? My favorite place to eat is actually in the next little town over from Shipshewana called Middlebury. Das Dutchman Essenhaus is a family, Amish style restaurant and bakery. Plus there is an Inn and shopping there as well.
Let me get back to the food. It’s served family style. All Amish and homemade! The dinner consists of salad, bread, fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, Amish noodles, a vegetable AND your choice of pie!! I usually don’t even bother with the salad! 🙂 I save room for all the fried chicken I can stand. Oh, and trust me I can hardly stand myself when I leave!!
I, of course made my way to the bakery to treat myself to an Amish Whoopie Pie. Like I needed it, but when in Shipshewana…
I highly recommend them!! Chocolaty goodness!!
Tomorrow I’ll share my fabulous buys and the measly sewing I managed to fit in, between all the shopping and food.
Oh and I am SOOOO on a carb detox now!! 🙂
