Red Barn Mercantile’s Annual Holiday Unveiling

If you call the store this week, don’t be surprised if we are slow to answer. We will be buried under boxes of Christmas decorations getting ready for our annual Holiday Unveiling. Every year, we turn the store upside down and create a winter wonderland for you to enjoy. This year, we have ten – yes, I said ten – themed trees planted around the store accompanied by all the accoutrements you need to make this Christmas festive.

I hope you will join us on November 8th from 6-9pm as we unveil this year’s holiday goodies. At this year’s shindig, we have some really fun things in store. Along with the trees we will have treats from Buttercream Bakeshop and charcuterie from La Fromagerie, all styled by Joy Bythrow of Mornings Like These.

The Old Town Boutique District photo booth will be on hand to capture the memories. Michele Hatty Fritz of Meant to Be Calligraphy will be working her magic in a cool and surprising new way (you have to come to find out!). There will be a raffle drawing and, best of all, discounts of 15 to 30 percent off your purchase!

If that weren’t enough, take your discount and head on over to Penny Post to pick up your holiday cards, gift wrap, ribbon, and paper and pen stocking stuffers galore. We will be open from 6-9pm for your party pleasure.

To give you a sense of the fun we have at our annual unveiling, here are a few pictures from years past. We look forward to seeing you Thursday night!


  • 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.
