Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts

Is your dad that guy who always says, “Save your money, you don’t need to get me anything?” That’s my dad. He is the hardest guy to buy for when it comes to any holiday. While he says “don’t give me anything,” I want to give him a little token of my affection and gratitude. After all that he’s done for me and my family and my brother and his family, a little something is the least I can do. If your dad is like mine then we have a few good ideas to make your Father’s Day gift-giving easier.

  • 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.
