We have operated a SIGN SHOP in the Shipshewana, Indiana Trading Place Flea Market for the last 26 years. The market is in LaGrange Country in the heart of the 3rd largest settlement of Amish people in the United States.
Thru the years we have acquired many close Amish friends…one in particular was a 15 year old boy that worked for us at the market 25 years ago….today, that same young man is a great family man with a beautiful wife and six great kids. He’s also a journeyman farrier (horseshoer) and blacksmith.
We’ve convinced him to convert some of his USED horseshoes into unique folk art items.
He doesn’t have enough free time to make big quantities of these…so we are happy to get as many pieces as we can. We’re proud to offer his creations on our website.
