Ambridge Things to Do: 21 reviews and 45 photos
The Harmonist Store carried goods produced by the Society for distribution to its members* or for sale to the community beyond.
R.L. Baker was the storekeeper overseeing the sale of woolen and cotton goods, wine and other products made by members. Farmers from the outside would bring their wool to the Harmonists, then receive credit in order to purchase things they needed from the store. The members of Old Economy had a successful retail business.
*Those people joining the Harmonists would receive all they needed without cost. It was one of America's most successful communal societies.
