How Do You Thank the People Who Support You?

You and your team have worked from home for the last seven months. Every networking event has been canceled. There were no conferences or trade shows. Everything is virtual. How do you stand out when all of these opportunities are lost? How do you reach new customers? How do you thank your team for staying with you and keeping your business afloat? You start by giving them a thoughtful gift this holiday season, that’s how. Instead of the usual logo mug or edible arrangement, give them something that will wow them. Something that will remind them of all the reasons they work with and for you – a gift that reflects your unique brand.

I’m excited to announce that we have just launched a corporate gifting program at Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post. We want to help you create a gift that people will remember fondly, share widely, and talk about for days to come. A gift that makes them think of you every time they use it. We all know that it takes hearing a message 10 times before someone acts. With a beautiful gift from Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post, I guarantee they will get your message often.

Working with us is easy. Tell us who you are, what message you want to relay, and who you want to reach, then we build a custom box just for you. (See some examples below. Please excuse the less than professional photography; it’s still a work in progress). Want to add a special note or your marketing materials? We can do that. Want to ship to each person individually? Done. Want to spend $50 or $500? Easy breezy. These times are difficult, and gifting is hard, so let us take the guesswork out of it and elevate your brand to new heights.




As I write this, we are producing beautiful boxes that will hold your brand’s vision. We are accepting new projects now and until November 15. Lead time is three to four weeks, so get your orders in now. If you would like to impress your clients, win new business, and thank your team, then email today!


  • 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.
