“I was extremely nervous about ordering my Amish furniture from an online store. For this reason, we ordered Amish furniture from a brick and mortar store with disastrous results.

“In fact, the furniture was delivered earlier than promised. We are so pleased we will most likely order another piece of furniture in the near future.
