We are now three weeks into the lockdown and we’ve been busy bringing in lots of new items. As promised in last week’s update, here is a rundown of new antique arrivals, so far. There will be lots more before we reopen.
A terrific Victorian dinning in set came in: table, 8 chairs, and a sideboard. The set has all the bells and whistles: pull out shelves, a silver drawer, a whiskey decanter drawer, and a complete set of custom made heat pads. The crank table is 59” x 52”, with two additional 20” leaves. That makes it a 99 inch long table when fully extended. A couple of photos are attached.
We’ve also been doing yearend inventory a little early, since we have time during the lockdown. And we currently have 368 chairs in the building. So if you can’t find any chairs you like at The Barn, you may have issues.

That’s everything we remembered to write down from the last few days we were open and during lockdown. There is more we’ve already forgotten about.
Film & television production is still ongoing. They are exempt from the lockdown. They have been our best customers during the lockdown. As their orders get pickup, more space is created in The Barn. So we will keep bringing new items in to fill up the spaces. We also plan on unpacking lots more boxes of smalls before reopening.
There are photos of some of these items attached to the last few updates on this page. We will attach more to future updates until we reopen.
