Mother’s Day In A Box To The Rescue

It’s down to the wire. Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and you still need to shop. I get it… nine times out of ten, that’s me running around trying to get a gift at the last minute. I definitely feel your pain, and this year the pain has been particularly acute. If it can be shipped to me, delivered to me, picked up in the store, or pre-packaged, then I’ve taken advantage of it. It really is amazing what can be done from the comfort of one’s home. The ease has been a relief in a ridiculously stressful year. In that vein, we are making Mother’s Day easy for everyone with our Mother’s Day boxes.





Unlike our Valentine’s Day boxes that were pre-filled, our Mother’s Day boxes are customized for the Moms in your life. They come in three sizes ranging in price from $50 to $150 and include all the things Moms like. From lavender bath salts to peony candles, gardening goods to cooking essentials, and sweet treats to craft cocktails, we can put together a lovely gift just in time for Mother’s Day. Simply order your box online and add all the notes about Mom when you check out. Be sure to include the things she loves and the things we should avoid. Then we will have it ready for pick up by brunch on Sunday.  Easy breezy!


  • 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.
