Amish furniture companies are showcasing their work this week at the Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show.

The event gives the companies a chance to make contacts with future customers.

“This is the only show we do,” Daniel Schlabach, a second generation owner of Schlabach Furniture Apple Creek, Ohio. “It is so nice to meet all of the people. They might not buy immediately but many come back and they remember us when they are ready to buy.”

The Amish are known for well-made furniture, flooring and cabinetry, said the show’s executive director John DeSantis.

The show offers a lot of exposure, said Jacob Sheter, owner of Alpine Cabinets of Winesburg, Ohio.

“This show has a good, active crowd,” he said. “We’ve gotten lots of positive responses. It’s all hand-crafted and we provide quality and the best customer service.”

Michael Yoder, a salesman for Weavers Fine Furniture in Sugar Creek, Ohio, said customers respect the work.

“The furniture is all hand crafted and high quality, and it lasts a long time,” he said.

For second generation family-owned business, Country Hill Furnishings from Millersburg, Ohio, the show has given them a connection to customers in the Pittsburgh area and beyond.

“We are a small, family business,” said Eli Yoder who co-owns Country Hill Furnishings with his wife Katie. “It’s solid hardwood. We make heirloom pieces that are locally crafted and last for generations, and we are getting more non-traditional orders and some we make from reclaimed wood from old barns.”
