Shipshewana On the Road shows are two day sales where independent vendors offer their products or merchandise for sale to the general public. The shows are held in various venues in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio during the spring and fall. The vendors consist of artisans, crafters, flea market dealers and retail business owners. Many of the vendors set-up at the outdoor market at Shipshewana, IN during the summer months - hence the name of the show. There really is no limit on the type of merchandise for sale, however JDL Corporation decides what merchandise is allowed at the show and seeks to have as much variety as possible. Finished and unfinished pine furniture, handmade crafts, toys, home decor, handmade jewelry, cleaning products, clothing, homemade jams, jellies and cookies, 14kt. gold and sterling silver jewelry are just a few of the products at the shows. The first Shipshewana On the Road show was held at Battle Creek, MI in November of 1992. Since then, JDL Corporation has produced over 350 shows throughout Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and a few in Illinois. The average attendance at a Shipshewana On the Road show is 6,000-12,000 people.
