My husband and I planned a day trip to the Shops at Marlborough Barn during one of their twice-a-year tag sales, and we're glad we took the time. The vendors were knowledgeable about their items and open to negotiating prices. The Shops are incredible - the main store just goes on and on into different rooms and themes and three... More

This place is so awesome! They have new, used, handmade and local products! You need to have time in order to enjoy all there is to look at. I do not suggest taking children, especially toddlers, as it is very crowded and many breakable items just at the right height for curious children!

A nice way to spend the weekend. Good for used furniture at reasonable prices. We found a lovely table, very reasonably priced, also a lamp for on top if it. A fun look back into the past, we recommend a trip there.

Once upon a time, at this location, there was a quaint little village of buildings full of the most beautiful furniture, rugs, curtains, wall hangings, and accessories I had ever seen! Everything was beautifully displayed in the well kept rooms of the charming village. Now, under new ownership, there is little that remains of what was once considered "the best... More

This is a collection of shops throughout several buildings offering a wide variety of antiques and Americana. I'm pretty sure there is something foe everyone. There is also a restoration store with a large collection of lighting and hardware for all eras. I'm sure I'll be back.

An old cabinet door, a piece of vintage trim, a weathered but still colorful shelf. It’s filled with treasures - sports memorabilia, signs, wooden crates, advertising pieces, clocks – you name it. Hand-painted and distressed to look like architectural antiques, each piece of Just Richies repurposed artistry is an inspired answer to the question of where to put hats, scarves,... More
