We thought we would be talking about reopening plans and procedures this week, but the government of Ontario has extended the stay at home order for Peel until at least March 8th. What a difference one week makes.

I’ve had several email and phone conversations this past week where I was asked, “What’s it like to be open again?”, or something similar. There seems to be a great deal of confusion about who is open and who is not. The Barn is located in Peel, and thus subject to the mandatory closure of all nonessential businesses. Rest assured, as soon as we are allowed to reopen, we will reopen.

In the meantime if you want a tour of The Barn we have you covered. Below you will find two walkthrough tour videos of The Barn. They are the same tour, but one is 12 minutes, and the other is 5 minutes. We thought the speeded up version would be useful for someone who has never been to The Barn and wanted a quick tour. The videos are also permanently on our Antiques page.

If you would like information on something you spotted in the video, just email us the time of the video and a description of the piece. As well as what info you would like: price, dimensions, wood, age, if you would like a photo of the item, if there are other colour options, etc.. We will get back to you promptly.

Last week, we promised photos of a few of the newly arrived vintage metal signs, here they are. There is also a new section on our Reproductions page for Large replica metal signs. Some of the signs in that section are currently in stock. The rest are en route and should be here before the end of March.
