Antiques plus handcrafted goods

Nice antique store with an assortment of unique items. There is an excellent selection of handcrafted goods, too, and we ordered a patriotic-themed set of four placemats. Outstanding craftmanship and such a great deal at $25 for a high-quality, handmade product.

Not Much To See
Aug 2019
Being an historian and very into the 18th & 19th centuries, any building built in that era fascinates me. So walking past the "Old Woodshed" My fiancée would have passed right by (not so enamored by history) but I pulled her in. Except for the architecture (which wasn't very impressive, just old) the crafts and items here were both kitchy and overpriced.

An amazing step back in time
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I recently visited this amazing store. We were warmly greeted by Fannie who helped me pick out some beautiful keepsakes-she also kept my husband intrigued with her knowledge of the antique machinery in the store. Fannie was kind enough to give me Iris bulbs from her garden to take home. This has become one of my favorite places to visit.

Drawn to the shop; found the perfect items by accident.

Last minute decision to stop and check out the shop. Was greeted warmly and shown around. The gentlewoman located the perfect table runner, matching apron and hot pads for my taste before I even knew I was looking for them. I was so pleased with my purchases, I will definitely be shopping here again whenever I can make it back to Pennsylvania.

My sister has already put in her order for my next visit and I really wish there was an online store. However, with so many handmade items in so many patterns, it would be impossible not to "be there" to make your selection.

Many humorous signs entertained us and several of the larger items I realized I should fly over and rent a U-Haul to furnish my house with.

We never made it to the place we intended to visit and I'm not a bit sorry! Thank you for helping to make my visit a very special occasion!

Always find beautiful handmade items in this shop; the staff is very friendly and always a joy to converse with.
It's a must to return to this shop every time we're in the Amish countryside in PA.

Best Shop in Intercourse
Jul 2018 • Friends
When visiting Intercourse, I hoped to find stores that featured local handmade products. Store after store offered mostly items manufactured overseas with a touristy theme. The Old Woodshed was the perfect shopping experience. We were immediately welcomed by Fannie, a very friendly Amish woman who works with the store owner, Julie. Fannie pointed out all of the locally made items such as birdhouses, feeders, and placemats - some we later learned at time of purchase were skillfully sewn by her. The store also had a nice selection of antiques and everything was reasonably priced. There were some tourist items like magnets, but the home decor merchandise from outside of the Amish community was very tasteful and blended well. A beautiful store in a historic building staffed by kind and entertaining storekeepers was a memorable experience. You may want to visit The Old Woodshed first before any other shops in town.

My sister and I had off for the day. We wanted to explore this small Amish town near Lancaster, PA.
Jul 2018 • Family
The Old Woodshed was a unique cozy experience from the moment we walked in. The old Amish sayings, symbolic round Amish barn decorations, old needlecrafts were combined with the new crafts. The old solid heavy work tables were a wonderful way to repurpose these tools of the industrial revolution. We were delighted to look up to the ceiling and see numerous enameled pots and pans hanging . Parking was just off the street and ample. We were also looking for some old fashioned clothes drying racks and brooms and brushes. The warm personable manager and her partner were so kind to direct us to all our other destinations in town for lunch, quilt fabrics, yarns, and practical home and kitchen implements. All together our initial stop at The Old Woodshed was fun and the beginning of a memorable afternoon.

You can tell from the street view, this place is unique and has more than just local goods to offer. As soon as we walked in, Fannie was greeting us and making us feel welcome. She sews handmade items in the store, but prefers working on them at home where she can get more accomplished. You can see the old wood-working machines around the store, to include an old elevator to upstairs storage, old wiring across the ceiling beams with an original old Edison bulb still working, as well as wood remnants stored in the ceiling. Great nostalgic feel with local goods. If you want a great experience in Amish country, this is it. Stop by and support the talented locals.
