It's a wonderful day when you have some time. My DH & I went on a "commando shopping spree" with the help of the ladies on this thread back in August. I hit most of the Amish stores (and a few others) in 2 days. We not only had a blast, we met some truly lovely people (both on this thread and at the stores.) We've decided to make it an annual event. It's a wonderfully relaxing place for me, Cabela's isn't too far for him, and if it's a non-vacation year this really does the trick.
I was utterly disappointed with the F&CW when we were there. It's good to know they might be making a come back! I would certainly try it out again, but would encourage you to look at the shops these ladies have posted. The women who run them are super sweet and their prices were great!
