"The Amish"

If you're like me you visualize bearded men, white hats, plain clothing, women in ankle-length dresses with white bonnets, riding bicycles, or driving a horse-drawn carriage.

I also think furniture: sturdy, country-style furniture built to last generations.

But what I didn't know until recently is that there is a fascinating Internet-based company right here in Sarasota that helps over 120 Amish craftsmen sell their furniture all around the world.

I'm very pleased to welcome today Jim Miller, Founder & CEO of JMX Brands better known as DutchCrafters Amish Furniture
