Merry Christmas to You from Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post

Thank you all for another amazing holiday season! It was so fun sharing the most wonderful time of the year with you. Seeing all your smiles when you found the perfect gift for someone – or for yourself! – is exactly why we love our jobs. The ten trees at Red Barn Mercantile that were once dripping with ornaments are bare except for a few ornaments still longing to find a home on your tree. And the Christmas cards at Penny Post are waiting with bated breath to send holiday greetings to family and friends near and far.

To help the ornaments find their forever home and the cards to make their way around the world, we are marking all of our holiday goods 50 percent off the day after Christmas. But, because we are so grateful for our loyal Alexandria Stylebook readers, we are discounting all Christmas items 30 percent off today just for you. Simply mention this post and we will gladly take 30 percent off when you purchase Christmas ornaments, candles, cards, wrapping, and all other manner of holiday tidings this Christmas Eve (some exclusions apply).

We will be open 10am-4pm today to give you plenty of time to find that something special for someone special. Here are a few of our favorite Christmas decorations and paper goods to help you do your shopping…


  • 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.
