Flights of Fancy COVID Edition

Since we are staying home so much, I thought it would be worth sharing some of the things I’m doing to keep myself entertained and sane. I am listening to audiobooks, cooking up a storm, designing, and drinking. But most of all I am planning for the future. While it may not always seem like it right now – and believe me I’ve had my share of pity parties lately – we will get through this and be stronger when we do. Until then, enjoy some of my current favorite things to do safely at home.







  • 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.
