Last year retailers saw the "Buy Local" movement spring up during Black Friday, where hundreds of thousands of shoppers turned to local merchants for their Holiday shopping. "This Holiday season, why not give the gift of an handcrafted, heirloom quality product? Something that can be cherished and appreciated, not just for it's function, but for it's craftsmanship." says Leon Hostetler Co-Founder of Pinecraft.com.
Hostetler continues, "Remember the old fashioned wooden toys that kids used to get for Christmas? They're still being made by Amish wood workers throughout the US. As well as a host of other handcrafted items, like beautiful kids outdoor playhouses and heirloom quality furniture and decor." Internet retailers have opened the doors for Amish woodworkers, and products that once were only available close to the Amish communities, can now be shipped direct from the woodworker's wood shop. Some retailers even offer Free shipping.
Pinecraft.com has over 1,500 Amish made products available and more added monthly, offering great ideas for unique holiday gifts. Based in Sarasota, FL, Pinecraft.com pays tribute to the local Amish community, Pinecraft, FL. In fact, Pinecraft is the only Amish community in Florida and quickly growing in popularity thanks to the emergence of Amish Reality shows and an entertaining visit from Adam Richman, host of Travel Channel's Man v. Food. Co-founded by Michael Lennox, a web designer and internet marketer and business partner Leon Hostetler, who, himself is ex-Amish and a self-taught internet marketer. Leon started his venture in the internet world by helping his family, who are still Amish, launch an internet retail site for the family furniture business, Montana Woodworks. His family's log furniture can also be found on Pinecraft.com.
