Easter Comes Early This Year!

At this time last year, our doors were closed, and we had no idea what we were going to do. Then, our genius friend, Lesley McGrew, had the brilliant idea to offer curated Easter Basket services. We put it out there, and boy, did you all respond! If it weren’t for all of you wonderful people buying goodies to fill the Easter baskets of children (and the young at heart) near and far, we would not have made it through those early days. We are forever grateful to you and the Easter Bunny for all the support. This year, to celebrate, we are doing it again with a bigger and better selection of Easter themed treats. I wanted to share a few of our favorites and let you know that we are here to curate gifts once again! Fill out this form for Red Barn Mercantile and this form for Penny Post if you need a little extra help this Easter!

  • 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.
