It's Show Time!



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 back on, get the coffee pot 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 and let you shop our best collection ever, let's go over the ground rules:

1.   Hours:   Friday, October 3rd - 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday, October 4th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 5th, 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. 

4.  If you find something you love (and we hope you do!), we accept cash, checks with proper identification and Visa/MasterCard. 

5.  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.  Please keep in mind all deliveries are made after the show is over. 

6.  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!

7.  Hmm, I'm sure there are other things I need to tell you, but I'm a little tired right now and can't remember!  So, I guess I better finish this up and get some sleep so I can be at my best with the rest of the crew (Maria, Pam, Kari, Calvin, Gregg and Kenny) tomorrow morning.

8.  Aha, I just remembered the most important thing - have fun!  Enjoy the show!  We're going to be so happy to see you!

Call us if you get lost, have questions 
or just want to say hello, we'd love
to hear from you!

Thank you



To some people it might seem a little
strange to say "Thank You" before
The Barn Show even starts, but
not to us.

It's important to us that we thank you
before we even slide open the barn doors 
Friday morning because if you're reading
this post it means you're interested
in shopping The Barn, you've received
one of our postcards, or maybe even
a friend told you about the show.

We want to thank you because 
we know you have a choice in where
you shop for vintage goods, and we're
honored that you're thinking about
visiting us for the first time, or maybe
you're a long time customer who supports
our vintage barn show dream,
show after show, year after year.

Either way, we can't thank you enough.

We love what we do, work very hard
to present the best vintage show in the area
and are so honored that you are considering
spending your time and hard earned money
at The Barn Show,
and we can't wait to see you 
this Friday - Sunday,

The Barn Show
3250 Bottner Road
Gambrills, MD  21054



When you come to our show we want you 
to be inspired, to find something
perfect for your home, something
that "speaks to you" and worthy to
put in your home, your sanctuary.
And so that's why we're working
so hard to put together our
show - we want you to love it!!


And now, for some of the details: 
 As you know, The Barn
can get a little crowded
(we're so blessed!)
on opening day and
sometimes the line to get into
the parking lot or to check out
can be a tad long,
so while we've implemented some
improvements
(like more cashiers and a new check out que),
we ask for your help.
The reality is we have the same parking
limitations and we haven't been
able to solve that problem because
we just don't have room to expand
our parking lot, so we ask for
patience and kindness.
Please respect our neighbors,
who so kindly put up with our 
shows, by not parking on their
lawns or in their driveways. 
Let's make it an enjoyable
experience for everyone.
Things to consider: 
1.  Carpool with your friends
(just bring the big SUV - we 
want you to be able to fit a lot into it!)
2.  Plan to shop after the Friday
morning rush, which usually
occurs from when we open at 9
until noon or so.  
The mini-barn and the upstairs
of the main barn are absolutely
packed with stock and as we
sell down we re-stock.  
 So, the folks who are there 
first thing Friday
morning won't get to see
any of the fabulous pieces we bring 
down as the day/weekend goes on,
but you, our smart friend, will, 
because you shopped later in the day or
came on Saturday or Sunday. 
3.  If you do find something you love,
please remember,
all sales are final, and all
items are sold as-is.   
We only have three days to sell
a barn full of furniture/accessories and
 so our prices are fantastic!
Everything is priced to sell.
Prices are firm. 

4.   We accept cash, checks with
proper identification and Visa/MasterCard.
5.  If you fall in love with a farm 
table and you're only driving a 
Smart Car, don't worry, we offer
delivery services 
at reasonable rates.
(all deliveries are scheduled for after the show ends)

6.  All purchases must be picked up
no later than two weeks after the show
ends unless otherwise agreed upon.
Items not picked up 30 days after 
the show will be returned to stock. 
No refund will be given.
7.  And the absolute most 
important rule is to have fun!  
Enjoy the show - introduce yourself,
tell us what you're looking for,
give us your feedback - we want your
visit to the The Barn 
to be absolutely delightful,
and we can't wait to see you!

With much appreciation, 
we thank you!

The Waning Days



One week from today, summer 
will be officially over for The Barn crew.

There will be no more trips to the beach, 
days lounging at the pool, picking trips 
or backyard barbecues.

We'll be back together, meeting bright 
and early next Tuesday morning 
to start working on 
our fall show - and we can't wait!  

And don't let the whole summer 
vacation thing fool you.  

While we did enjoy the summer,
we also found time between trips, swims
and watermelon seed spitting to
search old barns, 
sweat our butts off at country auctions
(Oh, it's a glamorous gig barn friends!)
and meet with our
favorite pickers to gather
an absolute barn full of 
vintage finds.

It's what we do.

Even in the summer! 

So, this is where you come in.

We want you to enjoy the waning days
of summer; hit a few ballgames, splash
with the kids in the pool before the 
temperature dips, enjoy your garden,
and adjust to the back-to-school routine.

And about that time you're really ready
to sink yourself into autumn, 
by cozying up your home 
for the long cold months ahead,
we'll be ready for our fall show.

Where you'll find the area's most unique,
curated collection of vintage goods, 
seasonal decor, furniture,
antiques and everything in
between - just what you'll need to
welcome fall with open arms!

And just as a reminder, because we'll be 
working hard on designing rooms, 
 moving furniture, and setting vignettes, 
private appointments will not be available
until after our fall show.

Show News!


One of the things I love about the Barn is 
that we're all really good friends,
we support each other and recognize
that we're a united team, and that all of us
are an equal part of what makes 
The Barn, 
the area's best vintage show. 

So, when I realized a couple of days
ago that I would be moving my
son, Shane, into his college
dorm room at the 
University of Oregon,
(to start his freshman year),
the week of our fall show,
(September 26th - 28th)
I freaked out a little.

Lots of things ran through my head:

Maybe my husband can just take him.
Maybe I can fly back in time for the 
last day of the show.
Maybe we can arrange an early
move-in date with the university.
Maybe he won't mind if his
mama is not there.
Maybe this way I won't sob
like a baby when I leave
my son at a college
all the way across the country.

But then, I came to my senses.


As much as I don't want to 
miss a barn show, I don't
want to miss a single minute of being
with my son as he starts his
college years.   

I want to to be there to do 
as much as I can

I want to set up his dorm room,
I want to convince him
to go to some vintage shops for
dorm decor
(which I know won't happen),
I want to go to the bookstore
and load him up with t-shirts and
sweatshirts with the Duck logo
(and maybe a few for myself),
I want to meet his roommate,
I want to mingle with the other parents,
I want to finagle a meeting with the
university president
(it won't hurt to ask him to keep an eye on my baby!)
and to offer Shane more words of advice.
(Make a difference. Work hard. Be kind. Enjoy! 
I better start a list...I know I'll forget something!)

I want to be present as much as I can
before I proudly leave my oldest child and
cry myself a river at 36,000 feet
all the way back home to Maryland.

So, you know what 
The Barn crew said when
I told them all of that?

They said,
"Let's move our show to the
following weekend"!

Yep, it was
unanimous.  

Because we're a team and
we're not a whole when
one of us is missing.

Don't you just love it?

So, thank you,
Maria, Pam, Kari
Kenny, Gregg and Calvin

Thank you for changing
everything for me so I can
be with my son and not miss
a single moment of this
milestone event in his life
and not miss our fall show!

Not a single moment!   

How great is that?


So, whew, that was a looonnnngg
intro to our BIG NEWS!

Our fall show dates 
have changed.
:)

We'll be open:

Friday, October 3rd
Saturday, October 4th
and 
Sunday, October 5th

Please join us.

You'll recognize me. I'll be the one
with the puffy red eyes!

Go Ducks!
