E & S Sales: Come enjoy their unique varieties and wide selection of bulk flour, candy, nuts, snacks, dried fruit, baking ingredients and spices. They have cheese, meat, produce, jams & jellies, salsa, noodles and many other products. You can sit in their deli and enjoy a sandwich, salad, soup, slice of pie and ice cream. Check out their antiques on display while you browse the store and remember they are not open on Sunday!

We just kept pointing and exclaiming to each other as we walked the aisles. This is not your Costco variety bulk.

theater-blue-gate-048This is my niece’s mother in law.ย  She and her hubby traveled from Michigan for our cooking show and offered to take us around to some of their favorite spots in Shipshe. I’m sorry I didn’t get a photo of the 4 of us together. Besides E & S they took us to their favorite snack spot, JoJo’s Pretzels! JoJo’s is located in the Davis Mercantile, four levels of shops with a carousel on one of the levels.

They have a sense of humor, too.

blue-gate7We finished off our morning at Yoder’s Red Barn Shoppes not to be mistaken for Yoder’s Meat and Cheese. I’ll save that for another post. Thank you Arden and Mary Lou for your hospitality!

We are having a soggy stay inside Saturday here at this old house. The colors are changing nicely in our corner of the world. Our Canadian neighbors are celebrating Thanksgiving all through this weekend with Monday being their official Thanksgiving Day. Here’s a photo of the back of our home with some fall color. I took this photo yesterday morning.

  1. I love the parking lot photo the best! And, now I know what we’re missing here in the Pacific Northwest, Yellow Cheddease! (Which looks to me like the powder in your typical mac’ n’ cheese box to mix with the milk and butter. Is this is so you can feel like you’re making it homemade?)

  2. Ellen, these are wonderful pictures! The Amish bulk store looks interesting as well as Yoder’s Red Barn Shoppe! Your yard has some nice color too! Don’t you just love fall? I do.๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚

  3. I would love just wandering around looking at everything! Your pretzels looks very tempting, too. We are just beginning to see fall color here in Georgia, also. Have a nice evening.

  4. Love the tour you are giving here. When we were in Shipshewana this past May we were only there for a few hours and didn’t get to see too much of it. Love your fellow shoppers!
