Way too cashy. The bathrooms are nice. That's truly all i can say about the place. Just way too cashy for "authentic" Amish.

We made a quick trip to Shipshewana for Labor Day weekend. Davis Mercantile is a great place to shop. Lots of options. We especially liked the puzzle shop and the toy store. There is a great little restaurant on the top floor as well.

We usually spend time in the music store Simple Sounds and did so again this year. Good building to go to with family as the top floor has a merry-go-round, pretzel place to snack and restrooms.

We came here to ride the carousel, but we enjoyed walking through the shops too. We liked the old-time flavor of many of them, and bought a few special things at the music store. The carousel was carved by an Amish family in the area that they put on a 1905 Dentzel frame. It’s very nice, and the only carousel I’ve ever seen with sheep on it. The animals have been kept in very good condition. We did have one thing that bothered us. We’re members of the National Carousel Association and if possible like to take a moment to talk with the operator as well as take pictures. We were shoved on and off the carousel so quickly it was hard to take very many pictures of these wonderful works of art, and we really didn’t feel comfortable talking with the man running the carousel. We ended up taking a picture of our usual family in front of the carousel rather than on it.
