Fall Flights of Fancy

It’s my absolute favorite time of year. The crisp air, the crunching leaves, the ref’s whistle on the football field, and the scent of pumpkin spice permeating, well, everything. In the coming weeks we will tell you all about the fantastic events we have planned and all the potential gifts you can discover at both Red Barn and Penny Post. But today, I wanted to share some of my Fall Flights of Fancy. Just like last month I wanted to share with you a few things that I’m really excited about. Take a look and I hope you get excited about them too. Enjoy!

  • 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.
