Amish Tables Moves to Plymouth

 

continued

"We wanted a location that was a little more retail focused," says Wyant, smiling at the understatement. The current location is tucked into a side entrance of a nondescript building behind an even more nondescript building on Jackson near Zeeb, and its obscurity seems almost wasted on a purpose as thoroughly wholesome and legal as supplying large tables to Christian home-schoolers, which was the company's original motivation in the mid-1990s. The new Plymouth location is right on Main St.

Ann Arbor still has its Main St. Amish furniture store, King's Chosen, and Scio actually has yet another Amish option, currently even more hidden than the departing Amish Tables. The Branch Hill Joinery, Anna Gordon's home-operated by-appointment-only company, deals directly with a collective of Amish cabinetmakers. Gordon recently retired from her day job doing computer support for U-M and will soon be opening a showroom in Dexter.    (end of article)
