Need a piece of furniture that will last? Look no further than Hershberger Furniture, located at 138 S. Park Square, Suite 102, in Fruita.
Hershberger Furniture is owned by Tammy and John Hershberger. They sell furniture designed and created by the Amish, who are known for expert carpentry and workmanship.
John grew up Amish in Minnesota, and Tammy grew up a short drive from John.
“I had always known about it and I saw how pretty the furniture was,” Tammy said. “When we were able to buy some, we wanted to start selling it in Fruita.”
The Hershbergers began selling Amish-made furniture online in 2010. After the couple moved to Fruita in 2012, they decided to open a store front. Furniture sold locally includes dressers, gun cabinets, dining tables, and rocking chairs.
Robbie Urquhart, a Fruita resident, recently purchased a “glider” chair from Tammy and John for her porch.
“I love it,” she said. “Have you sat in one yet? They do fantastic construction, and it won’t ever fall apart. It swivels, glides and rocks, and the Hershbergers are awesome.”
Though prices may be higher compared to other furniture stories in town, folks should think of it as an investment, Tammy explained. A dresser ranges from $1,100 to $1,600 depending on detail, wood used, and finishes.
“Each piece is handmade out of quality wood,” she said, noting that custom furniture can be produced. “If you can draw it, it can most likely be made.”
Custom options include a variety of wood types, stain finishes and edging. All products sold at Hershberger Furniture are made by the Amish in Ohio or Indiana.
“It’s something that can be passed down generations and still look brand new,” Tammy said.
Financing is available. The store will offer 18 months no interest between Nov. 26 and Dec. 8. Delivery is also available.
Store hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
