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.
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.
They said the best would be Lehman’s mail order. The receptionist in the office happened to have a catalog so I got the address and got my own catalog and the belt. That was around 1980. Wow. It’s been a long time!
