Yoder's Shipshewana Hardware

300 S. VanBuren St. 260-768-4163 Website

Yoder's Shipshewana Hardware is much more than your typical hardware store. We are also known for our extensive line of kitchen and cooking products. Not many hardware stores can boast over 256 square feet of American Made Lodge Cast Iron cookware. If Lodge makes it, we stock it. Cast Iron is a healthy, easy way to cook. A well-seasoned pan renders it virtually nonstick meaning you won't need to use tons of oil to brown crispy potatoes or sear chicken. Plus, Lodge Cast Iron is a quality product made to last a lifetime.

We also offer over 240 styles of cookie cutters. You can find almost any design you would for your themed cookie project. We carry holiday, seasonal, sports, and animal themed cookie cutters. If there's a style you're looking for that we don't have…..we can probably get it for you. We never shy away from placing special orders for our customers!

For the cook in your home who is looking for new recipe ideas, we carry over 90 different cookbooks, many from our own local Amish community! We specialize in carrying Amish family recipe books. These are the country-style recipes that put Shipshewana cooking on the map. We guarantee you can't find these recipes on the internet!

Finally, if you enjoy popcorn as a snack, stop in each Saturday and enjoy a FREE bag of Yoder Popcorn. This has become a Yoder's Shipshewana Hardware tradition. We start popping at 8 am and don't stop until the crowds leave in the afternoon. We appreciate our customers and love sharing this healthy snack with them each week! Of course, we also sell Yoder Popcorn as well….both stovetop and microwave.

Stop in any Saturday to enjoy your complimentary bag of popcorn and see what other treasures you may find in the housewares department of our store!
