Amish furniture on Jackson



They still do the bulk of their business online, but the showroom gives people a chance to see the furniture. It's all still handmade by the Amish, but these days the Narowskis contract with Amish woodworkers in northern Indiana. Nell says their working relationships were a little confused at first. "When we first started, they were all sharing the telephone booth, and they didn't have fax machines," she laughs. Now their Amish partners have accepted using cell phones and fax machines for business. "We've come a long way," Nell says. "We could never do this by mail."

Amish Furniture Home Showroom, 4844 Jackson Road, suite 100, 997-3201. Mon.-Fri. 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and by appointment.    (end of article)
