Many moons ago I don't remember where, but I had one of their thick catalogs. My niece confiscated it and made it her coffee table book. That poor book got just plumb worn out. She had to call and order another one. Everybody and anybody would pick it up and forget all about conversation. And at the same time it promoted some very interesting conversation. Like, "how would you like to live like that today?" It certainly draws you in. Just like the Sears one always did.

Now look what you've done! I told DH I would make sauerkraut next month. Now I must have the fermenting crock and the sauerkraut stomper!! Jeesh. I'll have to look for the store when we go to Michigan next year, too.

It can be an evil store! Evil on the budget, that is. I have to use great restraint when I walk through.

BTW, it isn't exactly on the way from VA to MI. You would have to add a couple days - if you're gonna BE in "Amish Country" you may as well enjoy Amish Country. I have a favorite small restaurant or two I could suggest...

I'm not anywhere near there and I spend incredible amounts at Lehman's. Just got my fall catalog. Waiting till I have a hot cup pf cocoa and curl up with it. I love low-tech.

About a week ago I lost one of these:



I checked the garbage (yuck). We have used that silverware several times since then. Flippin' panic time. I checked on the 'net and the cheapest I could get a replacement was $179 on Ebay for two, plus shipping. Other places wanted as much as $149 plus $30 for shipping.

Well, much to my surprise and delight, today I found it. It was with the rest of the silverware, but in the wrong place. I'm blaming the minute guys. A Matter of Minutes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have had luck with Replacements.com. Sometimes pricy though.
