Hello, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during the quarantine. We would like to thank everyone for their emails of well wishes during this difficult time. Many customers and friends have reached out to let us know how much they miss the barn and their regular visits to wander around and see what new treasures arrived. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
We’ve been getting a lot of emails with similar questions. So we thought we would update everyone on what’s happening. A lot of people have been asking when we will be reopening. The answer is that as soon as the government allows nonessential business to reopen, we will reopen. Hopefully we will have a date soon. When we reopen we will have to do things a little differently. Social distancing will be required. Fortunately the barn is a large building and we should be able to make things work to keep everyone safe. More details on that to follow once the government announces dates and regulations.
We’ve also had several requests from customers wanting to come into the store to shop. We cannot accommodate those requests at this time. We would like to ask everyone to please respect the stay at home orders. We believe it is in everyone’s best interest. Plus none of our products are perishable. In all our years in business we have yet to see a furniture emergency.
We are still open for business via contactless delivery or curbside pickup. If you would like to purchase something please just send us and email and include your phone number. We will give you a call back and arrange a pickup or delivery time. We are currently offering free local contactless delivery.
If you are looking for something in particular and would like to see what options we have in stock. Just send us an email and let us know what you are looking for, in as much detail as possible. Please include your phone number. We will send you photos of the best available options.
Also, most of the items on our Reproductions page are in stock and available for contactless pickup or delivery. We have begun receiving regular shipments of reclaimed wood furniture again. As our customers have been ordering items from our website, as well as from the extensive selection of reclaimed wood pieces that can be special ordered through the barn. If you need a link or a login to see what’s available just send us an email and we would be happy to direct you towards what you are looking for.
We would also like to encourage anyone who can, to support your local small businesses at this time. We have a lot of relationships with small business owners who are really struggling right now. I think many of us have come to realize how important our local businesses are to us now that they are closed. And I really don’t want to wake up in a world where there is nothing but big box, chain stores, and online stores left. The Barn will survive this, but we are concerned that many of our friends business won’t. Shop with a local small business if you can.
And lastly we are going to be posting new content on this page every week from now on, no matter how long quarantine lasts. We’ve been asked many times to offer talks or classes on various subjects relating to antiques and furniture. For now, instead of an update on new arrivals, we will be posting a series of short articles on a variety of topics we often get asked about. Everything from antique pricing, to changing styles, to the history of the barn, to furniture repair and cleaning, to spotlights on the various types of products we carry. If there is a topic that you would like us to cover, just let us know and we will try our best to cover your topic.
Better days will come, and we will see you soon.
