Get To Know Rachel

I grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Even as a child I daydreamed about having some kind of business. Many years later, after becoming an adult, some of my dreams came true. I started out with a bake shop and craft shop in my home; then I had friends ask if I would be interested in serving dinners to groups which I did till I sold my home and moved to southern Franklin County, which is in central Pennsylvania. There I opened up a dry-goods store. I started out with fabrics and some general housewares for the Amish and Mennonite people in the community. I also had Christian books [true stories and romance novels], toys, and books for children. I began carrying items that some of my English customers wanted, starting with a few rubber stamps and some scrapbooking supplies. I soon expanded the line of rubber stamps and accessories for card making and scrapbooking. A few years later I moved into a larger building where my Dad had been making furniture. The physical labor was getting to be too much for him at his age, so we renovated the building and moved my store into his shop. By this time I had increased my lines. I was in that building 18 month then had the misfortune of having a fire and lost everything. We rebuilt at the same location and  I now have quite a variety of unique gifts, toys, housewares, scrapbooking and card-making supplies, and of course Amish novels written by a number of authors, Cindy Woodsmall being one of my favorites. Being Amish we do not usually have websites, etc. but Cindy had a website built for Rachel’s Country Store.

As of August, 2014 I will be serving dinners [by reservation]. My specialty will be the Amish wedding dinner that we serve at noon after the ceremony.  We will be offering an all-inclusive tour where you get to see an Amish home, have a Q and A to learn about the Amish faith, and have Rachel join you and your group on a tour of the Amish country. Please contact Rachel for details.
