Eash Sales 37 Years Strong

Your excitement is growing as you turn from U.S. 20 onto State Road 5 North into Shipshewana. You are eager to begin a day of shopping at unique stores owned by Amish businessmen.

One of the very first things you see is, at your right, a huge woven basket, standing over five feet tall.

You have arrived at one of the very first stores in Shipshewana: Eash Sales.

According to Marty Miller, who co owns Eash Sales with brother-in-law Jay Eash, they’ve been in business since 1975, and they just continue to grow.

My father-in-law started Eash Sales as a one room store,” said Miller. “Sadly, he passed away at the young age of 49, and we’ve been running it ever since.

Miller describes Eash Sales as a “rural store with character.

We like to carry lots of hard to find items.

Some of the things you’ll see are many Thomas Kinkade pictures, Peter Dunn Plaques, housewares, canning supplies, and cookware.

You’ll also find fireplaces, both electric and gas.

That’s just on the inside. On the outside, you’ll find just as much, if not more, of a variety of items.

Along with an assortment of baskets to go along with that eye-catching large basket by the road, the retailer carries gazebos, poly furniture, swing sets, grills, bird houses, and other gardening ornaments on their 2 ½ acres of winding paths, lawn, and garden benches.

One very unique item Eash Sales carries is a selection of rustic log cabins. Some are pretty as a picture and can be envisioned quite easily sitting alongside a quiet creek or wooded patch of countryside.

Miller is a friendly gentleman, of the Old Order Amish, who is grateful for the tourism industry.

We credit the growth of our business with the tourists. We started with the locals, but tourists have helped us become who we are.
