Well, it’s already been three days since we reopened for instore shopping. So, let’s update some new arrivals, that we’ve yet to mention. These pieces came in during the last few weeks of lockdown. The film and TV business was operating at full steam during the lockdown. They’ve been buying a great deal lately which gave us some space for new arrivals.

We’ve already included photos of a few of these pieces in previous updates. Due to so many new items arriving and the long lockdown, a few items in these updates may be out of order. To make space for new arrivals some items have come in, and then we’ve had to move them into storage to make room for more new arrivals. These items will be brought in again as we make space, that process has already begun. We will now return to weekly updates on new arrivals. These updates will return to simply an accurate recap of what we brought into The Barn over the past week. Everything should be sorted out and back to normal in a couple of weeks.

First, an unusual piece, there is a photo below of a stone boat or stone sledge. It’s pulled by a horse or tractor and used to pull rocks or logs out of a field. This one is circa 1870’s from Huron Perth. So, if you’ve got some boulders that need moving, we’ve got you covered. Please note that you will need to supply your own horse.  

Antique furniture new arrivals included: 5 section mahogany barrister’s bookcase, marble and brass piano lamp stand, two-piece quarter cut oak hall bench and mirror, pair of tall iron wine racks-a photo is below, electric organ and stool, nice walnut tea wagon, large copper stick stand, Canadian made round mahogany French style curio cabinet, round French pedestal lamp table, set of 4 press back chairs, 3 nice gilt mirrors, and a pine secretary desk with leaded glass design.

More antique arrivals included: a pair of gut snow shoes, full-size cast-iron pot belly stove by Moffat, 2 copper boilers, three wood crates-one Pepsi, large brass planter, assorted oil paintings, original milk crate with 12 milk bottles, 45 horse shoes, five branch silver plated candelabra, assorted garden décor, brass lantern, traffic guard light, large wicker basket, pair of brass oil lights, pair of bedroom lamps, pair of living room lamps, and more.

We’ve also put out on display some china sets that we may or may not have mentioned during lockdown. Too many china set to keep track of. As well, another new batch of cups and saucers, and a nice Aynsley cream and sugar set came in.
