We managed to visit most of the cities in the area, stocking up on all kinds of Amish foods including homemade noodles, blackberry jam, locally produced maple syrup and a peanut butter spread. The Amish farms in the area were quite large and well kept and I really admire their industriousness.

There are also lots of antique malls with wonderful primitives, but my favorite shop was at our last stop in Pierceton, Indiana, which is apparently the antique capital of the area. So if you love antiques, make that your first stop!
Country Heritage Primitives is one of those shops where you walk in the front door and know you've found a special place. So many special, handcrafted treasures! And the creativity extends to the garden next to the shop.
And to top it all off, we spent the evenings listening to wonderful concerts from talented young musicians from around the world. The trumpet ensemble played their final piece on Sunday and now I'm sure everyone is catching up on their rest after a busy month!
