Lehman Hardware & Appliances has all you need to live life unplugged. The company sells appliances and other items, such as toys and tools, which require little or no electricity. It has long served the Amish at its store in Kidron, Ohio, but the company also fills orders through a toll-free number and its Web site, and sells many Amish-made items. Lehman Hardware's traditional products include grain mills, oil lamps, treadle sewing machines, wagons, wood ovens, and weathervanes. It also sells equipment to harness solar energy as well as efficient electric appliances. National anxiety about terrorism has benefited Lehman Hardware's sales. Owner and retired president Jay Lehman founded the company in 1955.

While Lehman Hardware & Appliances started out catering to the Amish, its customer base has expanded dramatically in recent years. In addition to off-the-griders and those worried about survival in the wake on an attack, Lehman's farm tools and supplies, natural personal care products, and classic toys appeal to those who are nostalgic for simpler times as well as customers interested in reducing their carbon footprint. The worldwide reach of its Web site and ability to ship goods internationally allows the company to ship to developing countries. Power outages are good for business as well.
