I lived in northern VA and PA for a very long time.  The humidity was awful there.  You couldn’t get me back there.  Ugh.  I was back east for nearly 40 years and never adjusted to the weather.  But, living in Amish country in PA is how I discovered Lehmans.  Way back in the day of mail order, pre-Internet, I went to a homeopathic doctor in Lancaster, PA.  His name was Henry Williams.  He was known all over as the doctor of the Amish.  Every time I went to him there were buggies in front of his office.

Three old Lehman's catalogs--they may look familiar!

I had an old treadle sewing machine that I was restoring.  Everything was perfect but there was no belt.
I was in the doctor’s office for my annual poison ivy prevention medicine and I asked the two Amish women who were in the office if they knew where I could buy a treadle belt.
