Bubbles and Bargains: Big Anniversary Celebrations at Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post

September is a big month for our little company. Red Barn Mercantile turns 11 and Penny Post turns 1! Can you believe it?! Oh, how time flies.

Last September – exactly 10 years and 10 days after opening Red Barn Mercantile – we opened the doors to Penny Post, Alexandria’s newest hub for all things paper and stationery. The response has been overwhelming. We cannot thank the people of Alexandria and our many visitors from places near and far for making our first year more successful than we ever dreamed.

To celebrate our two milestones, we are going to break out the bubbles – and the bargains. On Saturday, September 8, from 10 am to 7 pm, join us at both stores for sparkling wine and discounts from 15 percent to 30 percent off everything in the stores! This is our way of saying thank you for supporting Red Barn over the years and for welcoming Penny Post to Old Town so warmly. We are truly humbled and grateful and hope to see you all on September 8!


  • The latest from Amy
Owner Amy Rutherford started Red Barn because she wanted to deliver a service — to provide both old and new in one place. No longer will busy shoppers be limited to reproductions or forced to shop multiple flea markets for the look or gifts they want. The trick in blending old and new, vintage and modern, classic and quirky, is balance. And Amy’s knack for mixing rustic antiques with urban chic has created a look that is both fresh and familiar.

Red Barn Mercantile opened its doors in September 2007 with a single vision in mind: providing old and new to offer our customers signature whole-room designs at great prices.

We’re more than a furniture boutique and provide more personalized service than a big box retailer. We work hard to bring you the highest quality furniture and gifts, the most unique conversation starters, wall hangings and accent pieces, whether they come from off-the-beaten-track flea markets, or the latest designers.
