Shop, Dine, and Give During Good. Works. Alexandria

Right now, we all need a win. Something to feel good about. Something to get excited for. That’s why Old Town Business Association has partnered with ACT for Alexandria to bring you the first ever Good. Works. Alexandria, Alexandria’s first citywide small business day of giving. Businesses all across the city will be donating a portion of your purchase to the local Alexandria charity of your choice. You shop and dine, and we give.

Here is how it works: On May 27, shop online (or call in your order) with our boutiques, order take out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, cocktails, you name it from our restaurants, and engage our service providers. When you do, tell them to what charity you want your donation to go. (At Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post add it to the notes section when you check out.) Then we give the funds raised to that cause, they continue to do their critical work, and you get the warm feeling that you have supported the small business and nonprofit communities. That’s a win, win, win triple threat!

Right now, more than ever, our community needs us. As business owners this is the best way we know how to help, but we can’t do it without you. I hope you will join us next Wednesday for Good. Works. Alexandria. Charitable giving has never been so much fun!



  • 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.
