TOP OF THE TANK / AMISH BUNGALOW FURNISHINGS
Bungalow Chronicles—I was delighted to find accent furnishings in the Amish countryside in southern Pennsylvania. Forgive the somewhat under exposed image, but I was so thrilled to find this butcher block island in a Craftsman style that I forgot my photo skills. This island piece will fit beautifully in any craftsman bungalow. This particular shop is in Intercourse, PA, where we found many original pieces that were low priced and finely crafted. The problem, however is shipping. It’s darn hard to get that buffet to our home in San Diego via horse and buggy. Also, ask your Amish shopkeeper if the piece you’re interested in was fashioned in USA.
