Antique Shopping in Ohio Amish Country


Holmes County Amish Country consists of several small  towns and each town is known for something different.  Millersburg and Winesburg are probably the 2 most popular for antique shoppers.  Almost every town has at least 1 antique mall or shop.  Serious antique people seem to flock to Hershbergers Antique Mall on State Route 557 south of Charm and before Farmerstown.  It is an Amish-owned business that really knows the value of a good antique.  They have many items on display in the dining room on the 2nd level of Walnut Creek Cheese too.  When shopping in Berlin, Ohio for antiques you need to watch because many places that use the word "antique" are more collectible items vs. antiques.  The owners at Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast will map out directions for their guests to find antique shops and malls.   The Calendar of Events on the B&B website will advise future guests of when there are Antique Festivals and Shows in the area.  Come and visit Holmes County and you will see that there is more than Amish in Amish Country!
