Amish hats at Pickens General StoreOK, I admit this post might just be a bit of a plug for one my clients. But I promise you that if you're into Amish stuff you're gonna want to know about them anyway.

We recently had the pleasure of finishing up a nice online store for our clients at the Heuvelton Historical Association. They've got a bricks-n-mortar store (literally) in Heuvelton, NY, called Pickens General Store, and they thought that there might be lots of folks who would want to buy real, authentic Amish goods online. I think they're right.

If you're into Amish stuff, as I know lots of you are, this is the place to visit. They've got all sorts of products, most all Amish-made, from furniture to clothing to quilts to baskets to kitchen tools...you name it, it's there.

Heuvelton is one of the primary Old Order Amish communities in New York State.

Aside from there being a real "cool" factor about all of the items in their store being truly Amish-made, and locally Amish-made at that, I think one of the best things about the place is the fact that it's on the bottom floor of the old Heuvelton Opera House. This place has a whole lot of history, and you can tell. Step inside the four walls of the store and you'll immediately feel as though you've stepped back a hundred years or so.

The Historical Association opened the store as part of their efforts to restore the opera house and also to bring a little history back to Heuvelton. The store and the association are non-profit entities, so buying things from Pickens General is a good way to help the restoration project if you're into that sort of thing.

Visit their store in Hevelton or visit their store online when you get a chance. You won't be sorry, and you'll have a great time as well. Where else can you get a real Amish hat for less than 15 bucks?
