Do you have a layaway program?
Yes. With a layaway, you can spread your payments over three months. A quarter of the total is due at the time of purchase, then an installment is due each of the next three months. We will store your piece without additional charge during the layaway period, and you're welcome to pay the balance and pick up your piece at any point.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes. We're happy to issue gift cards in any dollar amount and without an expiration date. If you'd like, you can purchase your cards over the phone during business hours.
What are your holiday hours?
We keep normal hours during the holidays, except that we close on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
Do you accept returns?
All sales are final, except in special circumstances which you may discuss with our staff before you make your purchases.
Can kids enjoy the Barn?
Well-behaved children are always welcome at the Barn. We have a dock overlooking a pond with a variety of wildlife, and many children enjoy feeding the fish from the dock.
How can I get my purchases home?
The Barn always has friendly staff available to pack your antique purchases and load them into your vehicle for you. We do not offer shipping services directly.
We can refer you to several local packing, shipping, and transport services. Just drop by or contact us, and we'll suggest the right shippers for the antiques and destination you have in mind.
Are there other shops nearby?
You'll easily fill a day with your trip to The Barn. The Wales family operates several other shops at the same location as The Barn, including The Stable Home Decor, The Back Porch Tearoom, and The Back Yard Garden Shop. Find out more about those shops at their website.
If you're looking for more, we're only a four-mile drive from Lake Alfred, which is home to a number of small antique-and-collectible stores and tearooms.
