They have everything under the sun that you could ever want or imagine to live a simpler life and then some. A lot of the tools they have for sale you can buy elsewhere a lot cheaper. After watching a YouTuber living off grid and talking up the store I am kind of shocked at the prices for some of the stuff. Kerosene lamps at $100 and up for a basic model? I bought the exact same cast iron enamel coated large pan from Walmart for the same price. And they are quite proud of their woodstoves and their wood burning kitchen stoves. All I can say is wow! You would have to have a chunk of change to live off grid and shop at this store. It’s a neat experience but once is enough and twice is too many.…

Response from Proprietor-Lehmans, Owner at Lehman's
Responded Oct 3, 2020
Hi Scchevelle454, I'm sorry you couldn't give us a full five star review. I am gratified and thankful for your comment, "They have everything under the sun that you could ever want or imagine to live a simpler life and then some." That's what we're trying to achieve! I hope you don't mind if I respond to some of your criticism. 1) You said you think that some items are cheaper elsewhere. Please tell me which items. If you can buy the exact same items elsewhere for better prices, I will change my pricing to match. We work very hard to keep fair prices, and I think that in an apples to apples comparison, you'll see that we're living up to our side of the bargain. You said we have have the same item as Walmart for the same price. Did you think we should have it for less? Walmart has more buying power, doesn't provide benefits to their employees like we do, and doesn't share 10% of their pretax profits with charity, like we do. I'm feeling good about myself if I can do all that and match Walmart's pricing! :-) You said "basic oil lamps for $100." The only oil lamps we have for more than $100 are Aladdin lamps, which give six times more light while using less fuel than common lamps. We also have some "over $100" lamps with special quality upgrades like brass burners, or that are made in the USA or in Europe. If you want a basic model of a kerosene lamp, I'm happy to help. At last count I had 10 lamps for less than $20. All of them are perfectly serviceable. A few were designed by me, and are only available at Lehman's. Yes, I admit I can't always compete with faceless big box stores, but I'm trying mighty hard. And, I'm stocking the low cost, basic products they carry right alongside things like hand powered washing machines, flour mills, apple butter kettles, Aladdin oil lamps and solar powered food dehydrators that you won't find in ANY Walmart. We're just a family business trying to do our best. Your comments will help us do better going forward. Thanks again for visiting! Galen Lehman Galen Lehman

We stopped by the store while in Amish country of Ohio. Since they serve the Amish community they carry many items that are not electric. They handle wood burning kitchen stoves, wood stoves of many types to heat homes, kerosene lamps for lighting homes, a large variety of hand tools, old types of winger washers, and many other items. They have a large selection of kitchen items various types of candy, several types of hand pumps for wells. There is also what they call a Buggy Barn that has three dimensional large wood carvings by local Amish craftsman Paul Weaver. His carvings are unbelievable in detail. The store also has a small cafe where shoppers can take a couple of minutes to get something to eat and relax. There is a lot of parking available. Outside they also have a gardening area with outside furniture. Overall this is a store that will take back in time and very enjoyable. You can easily spend 2 or more hour's looking and shopping.…

I really enjoyed visiting Lehman's. Things I never knew I needed are on display throughout the store. The prices are a big high, but you get what you pay for. The goods appeared to be of the highest quality.
