Straight pins

straight pins amish

Look closely, you’ll notice she doesn’t have any buttons on her blouse, just straight pins in their place.  I hear the men use straight pins even on their trousers.  Ouch.

    Oh PA Dutch country! I live Northwest of Lancaster county but we have tons of Amish farm stands and even a big auction/farmers market with plenty of vendors. I hope you had a wonderful trip!

    I love traveling through Amish Country! We have such rich history from their culture as well as the arts of cooking and needle work samplers they grace us with. For all the controversy around them they are so admired in many ways! Thank you for sharing this with us. 🙂
