I will be doing a book signing of my recently released title “A Journey Through My Country Life” in Ohio at the Lehman’s store during their up-coming Summer Celebration.
With people striving to make their carbon footprint smaller – Many of the “Old” ways” are becoming “New” again. These are some of the reasons much of my writing topics also trend to guide the readers to help preserve the past including steps of how to do it themselves. “A Journey Through My Country Life” is a collection of some the articles I have written for Lehman’s newletter and blog over the years.
In celebration of 55 years of selling history, Lehman’s is hosting a summer party on July 9th and 10th “Summer is a great time to visit Amish Country,” said Glenda Lehman Ervin, vice president of marketing at Lehman’s. “We invite folks to come and see our newly expanded housewares department and learn more about the old-fashioned way of life.” The Lehman’s staff has planned a full schedule of product demonstrations so visitors can “Learn the Lehman’s Lifestyle.” Lehman’s, founded in 1955 by Jay Lehman to serve the local Amish with non-electric, old fashioned products, is home to thousands of products you probably thought they quit making years ago. Merchandise is housed in a rambling store, with four re-constructed Civil War era buildings, and a collection of museum-quality antiques. Tin toys, weather vanes, oil lamps, kitchen gadgets, hand tools, non-electric appliances, eco-friendly garden products, homemade treats, unique cookbooks, handcrafted and locally made furniture, candles and more- there’s so much to see and do you’ll want to spend the entire day. The summer party will have an educational flair and a festive atmosphere: -Watch vendors demonstrate how to use Lehman’s products -Enjoy old-fashioned children’s activities -Snack on barbecued beef, cooked outside on a Lehman’s gril.
