Everyone’s a Winner at Red Barn Mercantile & Penny Post This Year!

There are no new ideas. Or at least they are few and far between. So when my husband came home with an envelope from the restaurant Maggiano’s, I was shocked. It was a new idea. It was a really good idea. So good, in fact, that we decided to steal it this holiday season.

Here’s the deal: every time you visit Red Barn Mercantile or Penny Post and make a purchase from now through December, you’ll receive a very special envelope with a surprise inside. Do not open the envelope. Instead, bring the envelope back to Red Barn or Penny Post (depending on where you got your envelope) in January and we will open it for you.

Inside you will find one of three prizes. One, a free gift with you purchase. Two, $10 off your purchase of $50+, $25 off your purchase of $100+, and $50 off your purchase of $200+. Or three, a $100 gift card. Every card has a prize, so, you see, everyone’s a winner!

This envelope is our way of thanking you for shopping local and supporting our little family of businesses during the holiday season. It’s also our way of kicking off the new year in style. We hope to see you soon!


  • 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.
