It’s already been three and a half weeks since we reopened and things have gone better than we expected. We want to thank our customers for wearing masks and respecting social distancing. However, we would like to ask everyone to please bring a mask or face covering with them when visiting the Barn for everyone’s safety. We due have disposable masks in store if you forget yours. However we have already gone through hundreds of masks and not only is this costly but it is also environmentally unfriendly. Masks are required for everyone visiting the Barn with no exceptions. Many costumers have told us that they don’t have a mask. You can use a scarf or bandana or face shield of any type. We don’t want to have to start charging customers for masks as many stores are doing. So please help us out on this one and come prepared.
We will be sticking with our current schedule for the summer months. We are open our regular hours 10am to 5pm Thursday through Sunday, by chance or appointment Monday and Tuesday, and closed on Wednesdays. New arrivals aren’t as fast and furious as they were before the shutdown due to lack of space in the building from the shutdown. However we have still brought in lots of new items over the last few weeks. As we continue to make space in the Barn we will continue to bring in new items. Our warehouses are packed with antiques and our supplier’s of newly made items are all up and running again as of last week. Below is an update on new arrivals. The Quarantine Series will return next week.
We received the first shipment of a new line of RCMP items. Metal signs and wine barrel décor, a photo is below, great for a man cave. Don’t worry we have lots of signs for a woman cave as well. We also got in a batch of the very popular cast iron book ends, as well as some new cast iron school bells. The kinetic wind spinners which we usually bring in as soon as the ground thaws in the spring have arrived. Eight different models are in stock [boats around a lighthouse, airplane, dual leaf, gyro, painted disks, fan, tractor, maple leaf] our best sellers from last year as well as a couple of new models. Some unusual outdoor iron planters and crab baskets came in as well.
