Tuesday Tidbit - We're back!

Tidbit:  It’s been a while since we’ve published a Tuesday Tidbit…I’m sorry for making some of you mad as you look forward to these!  We’re back on it now! An interesting note came to me not long ago related to our bedroom furniture. We had a customer in one of our stores who was thrilled that we actually stained and finished the interiors of our drawers. She hadn’t seen that before and was glad to see the extra effort that goes into each Conrad Grebel piece of furniture. The little things make a difference.

Fun Amish Fact:  Tomorrow Larry Miller’s daughter, Janice, is getting married. It’s a major event for her and her entire family. Roughly 1,000 folks will come to the wedding at Larry’s farm at some point throughout the day. The wedding ceremony will last for most of the morning before lunch is served. The afternoon is used for visiting with each other and taking part in community. Around 5:30pm is when the supper takes place. This is the time when English friends (non-Amish) are typically invited to attend. Tera and I will be taking our three kids to this dinner together. Take a look at the photos below and read the captions. Preparations have been going on since this past weekend. 

 

If you would like to give Larry & Meredith a note to congratulate them and their daughter, Janice, just email me back. I’ll ensure they receive it tomorrow!
