Holiday Show This Weekend!

The lights are out, the barn doors are closed and we're all home resting up for our early morning return to The Barn. 

We'll be back bright and early 
to turn the lights on, 
get the coffee brewing for you, and to do a little last minute fluffing before 
our team of volunteers show up  to help us make your shopping experience the best one possible!

So before we slide open The Barn doors let's go over the ground rules:

1.   Hours:   Friday, December 4th - 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday, December 5th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and 
Sunday, December 6th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.


2.   Where:  3250 Bottner Road, Gambrills, MD  21054 (Anne Arundel County - conveniently located off the Route 424 (towards Crofton) exit of Route 50.


3.  Parking is limited, so please carpool if you can.  Friday morning is our busiest time so if you don't like crowds please consider coming a little later in the day or Saturday and Sunday, and as much as we love babies and toddlers, Friday morning is just not a good time to shop with them because there's no room for strollers during the Friday morning rush. 

We will have parking attendants at the entrance
to the driveway, in the parking lot and at our
satellite parking area.   Please follow the direction
of the parking attendants
(a.k.a. our husbands, sons, brothers, etc.!)
and if the main lot is full you will be directed
just down the street to one of our really
kind neighbor's who so generously 
allow us to use his field as a satellite
parking lot.   If you are directed to the
satellite lot, we have a 10 passenger shuttle van
that will bring you right to the door of the barn
and you can hop out and shop away!
Once you're done, our driver will deliver
you right back to the satellite lot.
Easy, peasy!

4.  Everything in The Barn has a price tag.  If you
find something you would like to purchase and it
is a small item, i.e., a lamp, book, candle,
please pick it up, DO NOT REMOVE THE TAG,
hand it to one of us, tell us your name and
we will start a pile for you on our hold
table with your name on the items
so no one else can take them.

If you find a piece of furniture, and are 100% sure you want it, please stand by it, flag down a 
Barn Show member (wearing black aprons)
and we will help you pull the tag.
Items are not considered SOLD until they
have been paid for.
If for any reason you change your mind,
please give the tag back to a crew member
so we can re-tag it so someone else can
purchase it.

Items with tags pulled and not 
paid for within one hour will be
returned to stock and re-tagged.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND SOLD AS-IS


5.  If you find something you love (and we hope you do!), we accept cash, checks with proper identification and Visa/MasterCard. 
NEW POLICY:
If you would like to use your Visa/MC you are
welcome to do so with a 
minimum purchase of
$25.00. 

6.  Now, let's talk about the checkout line.   So
we can get you in/out with your purchases
as quickly as possible, we ask that you please
enter the line behind the main barn
and you will be directed to one of the
checkout lines.   We will have a line
expeditor who will direct you to
a cashier in accordance with how you
plan to pay - cash, check, credit card.


7.  If you're driving a Smart Car and fall in love with a big dresser, you can always borrow a friend's truck and pick it up later , or inquire about the delivery service we offer.  Kenny delivers everything from armoires, to farm tables, to dressers, buffets and anything else you can't fit in your car.
Please keep in mind all deliveries 
are made after the show is over. 


8.  The barn crew and our volunteers will all be wearing black or green aprons, so if you need some help, have a question, or just want to tell us how much you love The Barn, :), please let us know.  We're here to serve you, and will do whatever we can to make your visit to The Barn an awesome one!


9.  The "flea" area of the barn is full of sale items and we will donate 100% of the money to the Mid-Atlantic Cancer Foundation to help individuals and their families impacted by a cancer diagnosis.  

10.  We'll also have Crofton Boy Scout Troop 115 on site Saturday selling fresh wreaths and centerpieces.   Please consider buying one to support their annual fundraiser.  


10.  Have fun!   Enjoy the show.   We hope you find something that inspires you!

Technology Blues

Bear with us folks, we're having some technology issues and can't get the sneak peek photos we promised you last night to load.  

Rest assured though, your weary (and water logged) Barn crew is working on the issue and hope to have it resolved soon so you can peek at what's waiting for you at The Barn.     

In the meantime, close your eyes and just imagine what you'll find at the show, like Christmas trees full of ornaments, rooms loaded with vintage goodies, an enormous tent full of fabulous furniture, holiday decor and gifts for everyone on your list!  It's all waiting for you, this Friday - Sunday, at The Barn Show, your favorite source for authentic finds!

Now, back to chatting with the fine folks manning the website help desk....!

Stay tuned!

Thank You!


The show is over, the goods are gone...

 

In the two weeks since our fall show ended we've been on a few picks, hit an auction or two, and an estate sale and are off to a great start gathering the goods for our holiday show, December 4th - 6th.
 
Kenny and Kari rolling out barrels of fun on a recent pick! 

But before we get too far away from our fall show 
we want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting us. Whether it was your first Barn Show or your tenth, we can't thank you enough for shopping the show and allowing 
us to live our dream! 

Thank you!

We also want to thank the incredible group of family and friends who help us at each show by manning the wrap station, who keep the coffee flowing, the traffic moving and the customers happy by helping out wherever they are needed. 

We truly couldn't do it without them and we can't thank them enough for their continued love and support; they're amazing! 

Thank you! 

Our wonderful volunteers:
Ada, Dolly, Karen, Chrissy, Steve, 
Shawn, Sarah, Charlie, Jeremy, Tracy, Jennifer, Tanner, Joy, Jackie, Kyle, Juan, Gio, Gianna, Tim, Jack, John, Alex, Mary, Sharon, Linda B., 
Veronica, Danny, Amy, Lynda L, 
 Jennifer H., and Gail T.


Kyle, Tanner, Fran, Jenny, Sean and Sarah, just some of the
support staff it takes to produce The Barn Show!


Gio kept all our shuttle passengers laughing!

Thank you!


Maria dug deep in the bag of entry slips to find our winner!

We'd also like to congratulate the winner
of the gift basket which included a $100 gift certificate to our  next show, a pumpkin, mum, and Barn Show candle, Sue Tyng!

 

We'd also like to thank everyone who  purchased something from the "flea" area of our show, where 100% of the money collected or donated is given to the Mid-Atlantic Cancer Foundation to help support the people and families impacted by a cancer diagnosis. 

Thank You. 

We'll get back to doing what we do best -
searching for another barn full of
authentic finds, all the while with 
grateful, thankful hearts!

Love,

The Barn Crew

It's Show Time!

  
Hello friends!

Ten years ago Maria and Pam, along with a few other women, had an idea to host an antique show in Maria's barn, a converted horse stable, not knowing if people would come, what to expect, or with any experience hosting such an event.  

The very first show, in the fall of 2005, was such a huge success, that the group decided to put together another show, and as time went on, some of the original members hung up their Barn Show aprons, and moved on to other pursuits, and over time, Maria added a new barn girl or guy to the crew, each with their own unique style. 

It's been about six years now since the crew of Maria, Pam, Kari, Gail, Calvin, Gregg and Kenny have been together, and The Barn has evolved into the area's premier vintage show and it's bigger and better than anyone involved with the original dream could have imagined!

And as we celebrate our 10th anniversary this weekend,
October 9th - 11th, we want to thank you so much 
for supporting our passion, show after show, year after year.  
We are so incredibly blessed to be doing what we love, and know that none of this would be possible without you.

THANK YOU!

So, please join us this Friday, October 9th through Sunday, October 11th to celebrate our 10th anniversary, and while you're at The Barn, be sure to drop your name in the raffle drum which will 
be located next to the free coffee, cookies, etc., because one lucky customer is going to win a $100 Barn Show gift certificate, 
and a few special goodies to go along with it!

Think of the possibilities!  
What would you buy with a $100 Barn Show gift certificate?  
Seasonal decor?
Jewelry?
Furniture?
Gifts?

The possibilities are endless, but you have to 
come to the show to enter! 

So, now let's get to the details!

The Barn is packed!   

It's absolutely overflowing with another amazing 
collection of authentic finds - the kind we're famous for, and 
there's truly something for everyone.  

From farmhouse to traditional to modern to eclectic - we have it all because we've spent months out picking flea markets, barns, and
secret sources and hauling it to The Barn, where we spent another month creating vignettes we hope inspire and delight you. 

It's all ready and waiting for you and your friends 
bright and early Friday morning!
(Or whenever you can join us!)

So before we slide open The Barn doors and present our 10th anniversary collection, let's go over the ground rules:

1.   Where:  The Barn Show
3250 Bottner Road, Gambrills, MD  21054 
Anne Arundel County - conveniently located just off 
the Route 424 exit

awesome neighbors' who generously

satellite lot, don't worry, you won't have to walk at all 
because we have a free 10 passenger shuttle van,
driven by one of our always charming husbands,
;)
that will drive you right to The Barn, drop you off at 
the entrance, and you can shop away at your leisure. 

Once you're done, our driver will deliver
you right back to the satellite lot.
Easy, peasy!
