Default A great source of "old-fashioned" supplies

I love this company! I know we are not supposed to be advertising for anyone, but this company really has all the good basics. That plunger-like thingy was great for the kids' diapers.

Lehman's rules.

Be aware their prices are very high.

A good practice is to shop their catalog to find what you
are looking for, then price surf to see if you can find
comparable.

Petromax style pressure lanterns and grain mills are good
examples of this.

Some items, however, are only available through
Lehman's. They have a kerosene lamp which is designed
to be hung from the ceiling. Most lamps of this category
have an obscene price range - hundreds of dollars. This
one is twenty two bucks. I want one, but they are back
ordered. I think a local Amish craftsman makes the steel
frames in his shop and uses cheap chinese lamps for the
finished product.
