‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through our store
Every creature was stirring, wrapping gifts and more.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Lehman’s goodies would soon be there. Continue reading →

Tomorrow (April 21st) is Jay Lehman’s 87th birthday. Jay started Lehman’s back in 1955, as a 1,000 sq ft hardware store in tiny Kidron, Ohio. His first employees were his father, brother and sister. My, how things have changed. But some things never change…like the endearing sayings Jay likes to use. The following examples are courtesy of Jay’s daughter, Glenda Lehman Ervin, VP of Marketing. Please join us in wishing Jay a very happy 87th birthday!

Spring may be arriving this year on Sunday, March 20. But here in rural northeast Ohio, the “REAL” first day of Spring will be March 15th. That’s because everyone’s favorite summertime hangout, the Dalton Dari-Ette, will be opening for the season!
The Dari-Ette has been a fixture of the village of Dalton for almost 60 years, and its popularity has never waned. Even after Subway, Domino’s Pizza and Wendy’s, among other restaurants, came to our little town, the Dari-Ette remains THE place to go for lunch, supper and of course – ice cream.
Every area family has a bit of history with the Dari-Ette, and mine is no exception. My grandmother (now 86) was good friends with the original owners and she worked there soon after it opened. My aunt (her daughter) works there still (she’s an excellent grill-cook). My sister worked there in high school and would come home smelling strongly of fried foods (not an unpleasant aroma to me, but it was to her). It’s almost a rite of passage for area teenagers to learn how to swirl the perfect soft-serve cone behind the Dari-ette’s screened walk-up windows. Continue reading →
An old-fashioned hardware as a source for wedding supplies? That seems as ironic as a wedding in a barn. Yet, “barn weddings” have become the rustic venue of choice for country and hipster couples alike as they re-envision this humble structure into a stunning new space for their big day.
