This was one of those week’s where new items just keep coming. Most went into storage and will be brought in as we have space. What follows is a partial list of the new arrivals, that did make it into the store last week. There was lots more that we didn’t have time to list. Some new arrival photos are below.

Every year we have a deadline for Christmas orders from our Springwater line. If you want something we don’t have in stock, or you want a different colour, it must be ordered by the deadline date in order to ensure that it arrives in time for Christmas. Because of the incredibly high demand right now, the Springwater factory has tremendously long wait times. Therefore, this year’s deadline date is going to be labour day. Our last Springwater shipment for the year will arrive in October, anything ordered prior to labour day will be included in that order. Anything ordered after labour day will not arrive until early 2022. 

I know no one wants to think about Christmas right now, but given the continued covid production and shipping delays, this is the last chance to get your orders in for the holiday season.

Tons of new arrivals this past week! Let’s start with a shipment of reclaimed wood furniture. From our Provence line: coffee tables, and the four drawer one door chest of drawers arrived. From our Irish Coast African Dusk line: small benches, coffee tables, and the servers or small sideboards showed up.

We also got in a new batch of large Tiffany, and a couple of medium Tiffany style table lamps. The butterfly and lighthouse Tiffany style lamps were also restocked.

The most exciting new arrival this past week was a huge batch of replica metal signs. There are a couple of photos below of some of the new ones, but there are lots more in store. During the second lockdown we started noticing a bunch of covid signs on the market. But most of them weren’t very good, so we found some terrific ones that were only available in Europe and brought them to Canada. In addition, many of the new signs we designed ourselves, and will be exclusive to The Barn. Plus, we restocked all the signs that we had previously sold out. We basically have all the signs now.

A huge batch of what we think are terrific replica tin signs will be arriving this week. We are biased because we designed many of them ourselves, during the second lockdown. It was a fun lockdown project. Many of the new signs will be exclusive to The Barn. We will include some photos in next week’s update, once we get them unpacked and out on display.
