The boot on top of the building should give you all you need to know! This place is country to the core. Amish country that is! Most of the inventory is Amish made somewhere and there is a lot of it! The consignment side of the store is from local vendors who bring in antiques from other places to be sold here and each vendor has a specialty they are known for. The Amish food products are Amish made but not locally. These items are FDA approved and made in Amish communities who can get FDA approved while local Amish make things in small batches and will not have the volume and distribution to warrant an FDA certificate. The local Amish products are in small bags and have marker prices on them. The other Amish products are of good value and quality build! You definitely need to add The Amish Country Mall to your itinerary of places to see while you are here in Amish country!
The first thing most people see when pulling into the driveway is all the Amish made furniture! These swings, chairs, benches and more are just a small sample of what is available. Tell those inside the store what you are hunting and they probably know an Amish man who makes it! The Amish also have produce up front during the growing season and other Amish made goods inside! Just go around and look and you will find all kinds of goodies!
The consignment areas are from locals who fit a niche group of products for sale in their booths. This specialty of only certain products in their inventory is very good for the buyer who is looking for their area of expertise. The vendor brings products from all over to their booths so you don't have to drive all over the place to find things. The market inside the Amish Country Mall and the outside building are full of vendor goods that are selected just for you!

The Amish goods are made from FDA approved Amish factories in other states because it is not legal to sell them in large orders without an FDA certificate in the quantities they do here. But be assured that they are Amish made in general. There are local Amish made items in the store! Ask the front person which items they are. Usually the local Amish write in permanent marker the price of the items on their bags or racks.
Local Amish Goods
The local Amish made goods will have a plain lettering and style on their packaging. This plain text is what gives their products away when comparing them to other products in comparison. The Amish people come in and check the inventory themselves as they don't have telephones or computers to leave them a message when stock gets low. These items go first so get them quick before they are bought up!
Vendors in sections around the store is what makes this place a mall! Having plenty of other people who go out and find things to put in their section of the store is like a hive of activity! The buyer really comes to find a real bargain when there are so many vendors supplying their store with top products. You must get these items when you see them. These vendors will trade things that don't sell quickly and you might miss out!
Make sure to see their Facebook page for up to date information from the owners themselves!
