Comments Off on Don’t Have a Truck? Brandenberry’s Shipping Policy
So you’ve ordered your fabulous solid hardwood, Amish-crafted furniture from Brandenberry Amish Furniture. How do your treasured pieces arrive at your house? Of course, you can pick everything up at Brandenberry’s ‘brick and mortar’ store in Shipshewana, Indiana. You would potentially save some money on shipping costs. Or, you can arrange for Brandenberry to ship your furniture to you. Don’t Have a Truck? Brandenberry’s Shipping Policy explains your options.
Don’t Have a Truck? Brandenberry’s Shipping Policy
After your new furniture order is finished, packaging and shipping take about three weeks. Your shipping charges depend on three components. They are the size of your furniture order, the number of miles to the delivery destination and the type of delivery service you choose. Also, your options include curbside or in-home delivery with setup.
Via Common Carrier. Do you live outside of Brandenberry’s 200-mile delivery radius? Then the company will ship your furniture via common carriers, such as Yellow Freight or Roadway. Once the furniture arrives at the carrier’s destination terminal closest to you, a PackShipUSA representative will call you to schedule the delivery.
Your furniture will arrive by truck. However, you, or someone you designate, must be present to assist the delivery driver with unloading. Also, curbside delivery means just that. You’re responsible to transfer the furniture to the inside of your home. So this is where being on good terms with your bodybuilding neighbor comes in handy.
Via Brandenberry Furniture Delivery Team. Do you live within a 200-mile radius of Brandenberry? In this case, the company’s in-house delivery team will take your furniture to your house. As with common carrier deliveries, the Brandenberry driver will call you to schedule a delivery time. You must be present. Or you must have someone present to assist the driver with unloading. Is your new furniture large and bulky? Then, you may need to recruit several helpers. (And have pizza ready.)
Curbside Delivery Plus In-Home Setup
Via Common Carrier. With Curbside Delivery Plus In-Home Setup, the shipment via common carrier is the same as Curbside Delivery described above. However, in this case, the driver plus an assistant make the delivery. Also, the two men will carry your furniture to the room(s) you requested. In addition, they will set up your furniture as needed.
The delivery time for Curbside Delivery with In Home Setup is 14-21 business days. This delivery method is more expensive than Curbside Delivery.
Via Brandenberry Furniture Delivery Team. This delivery method is similar to the Brandenberry Delivery Team process discussed above. However, at least two people make the delivery. The delivery team carries the furniture to the requested room(s) and does the setup.

Comments Off on Friends and Furniture: Annual Woodcrafters Convention
2011 Northern Indiana Woodcrafters Association
The 2011 Northern Indiana Woodcrafters Association made its annual stop from February 25 – March 2. It left this furniture-enthusiast anticipating next year’s convention. I made the trek to Howe, Indiana, on February 28. As a result I spent a day wandering the vast 145,000 sq. foot space of the Michiana Event Center.
Each aisle was packed with vendors. As well as their hand-crafted goods. As a result the craftsmanship and artistry of some furnishings were beautiful. There were countless opportunities for conversation as well. Furthermore seeing old friends, colleagues and customers chatting was a common sight.
I conversed with several friendly retailers. To my delight, they brought me up to date with latest advancements in the world of Amish furniture. In some cases, I heard the fascinating personal stories of how retailers entered to the world of furniture craftsmanship. The friendliness and professionalism of each person I encountered moved me. Also, the artistry of their craft intrigued me greatly.
Above all the anticipation of next year’s convention topped off my full day. As well as friends and furniture at the 2011 Northern Indiana Woodcrafters Association.
Comments Off on Shipshewana Amish Furniture Store Closed January 6
Shipshewana Amish Furniture Store Closed January 6, 2010
Brandenberry Furniture, a Shipshewana Amish Furniture store specializing in custom-crafted wood furniture in the heart of Indiana’s Amish Country will be closed January 6th as owners LeRoy and Ida Weaver celebrate “Old Christmas”. The Amish refer to Epiphany as Old Christmas. This is a day to pause and remember the birth of baby Jesus on the twelfth day of Christmas.
LeRoy and Ida grew up and still reside in the northern Indiana Amish community of Shipshewana. Here the traditions and celebrations for Old Christmas vary slightly but the holiday is still a day of rest. Therefore businesses close for the day. Old Christmas starts with a period of fasting in the morning. Many Amish families will get together later in the afternoon to celebrate their family Christmas. This includes a large amount of food, candy, and games.
The day the Wise Men visited baby Jesus in the manger is refereed to as Epiphany. Learn more about the history of Epiphany and various traditions and celebrations here.
