One Less Decision to Make

I don’t know about you, but I’m having to make about a thousand decisions more than usual every day. They range from do I want to shower today to how do I keep my family safe. It’s exhausting to say the least. Because we figured you’re as tired as we are, we are launching surprise Gift Boxes at Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post. Let us make a decision or two for you.

To do that we have created Gift Boxes that are chock full of our favorite items. The catch? You don’t know what items. We make that decision for you. The boxes run in several sizes across all sorts of categories. If you need something to keep the kids busy, we’ve got you covered. If you need a gift for Dad or a Grad, done. And, if you need a cocktail or a little self-care, we are all over that. The only decisions you have to make are which one and what size. It’s that easy!



These are great for loved ones or for yourself. They also make wonderful corporate gifts. If your team has been hard at work at home and could use a little pick-me-up or you would like to reach out to clients just to let them know you’re still here, then these are just the thing. Recently, we sent 80 boxes for one company to let their team know how much their safety and well-being meant to them. We can do that for you too. If you’re interested, then email Red Barn Mercantile at and Penny Post at to start that discussion!



If you need one less decision, then we are here for you. Let us shoulder some of that burden for you by leaving the thoughtful gift giving up to us. To order a little something for a friend – or for yourself – visit and today!



  • 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.
