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, April 24th - 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday, April 25th, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and 
Sunday, April 26th, 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
(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 
allows 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
 
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.  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.
 
10.  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!
