Shipshewana Indiana

Shipshewana was our favorite town. We should have stayed there in one of the two nice camp grounds. There is a huge flea market Tuesday and Wednesday. There are Amish families everywhere. Several nice restaurants and Amish history are in Shipshewana. Amish are all over the entire area but seem to be concentrated here. 

Horse drawn buggies are everywhere. 

Shipshewana stores all have horse hitching posts for the horses.

This is Walmart in Goshen. They have covered horse hitching posts.

You see plenty of buggies on the streets and county roads in Shipshewana. They do leave lots of brown road apples on the roadways.The state highways provide extra wide lanes for the buggies. 
If you are looking for RV furniture, this is the place. They are out in the country, south of Shipshewana. The Amish family owns and builds the furniture in this building. We ordered a new theater seating double recliner from Lambright Comfort Chairs to replace our sofa sleeper. Jerramya was very helpful as we made two trips to measure and select the right recliner. Amish built and not inexpensive but it will last many years. The lead time is eight weeks so we are coming back the first week of October from Two Rivers Landing in Tennessee to have it installed.
