CoryDoors – Red Barn Antique Mall #ThursdayDoors

I remember when the Red Barn Antique Mall opened umpty-ump years ago. I’ve bought many a gift there, and one gorgeous table that Charlie had to take apart and put back together again and is still in use.

The building itself is an old barn. Their sign cracks me up.

There’s a ramp on the other side of that gazebo, leading to the front door.

Or why not buy, you know, a door. Because who wouldn’t pay good money for a rusty screen door, amIright?

11 RedBarnScreenThanks, Norm, for creating your wonderful Thursday Doors link-up! Since I hadn’t been into the Red Barn Antique Mall for years and years, it was great fun to visit it again, especially since I got out of it without buying anything this time!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Someone offers something for sale no sane person would buy, but a sane person buys it. Why?





I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    What a very cool place! OK, I like the doors, but I LOVE the tools. Such a nice collection of antique tools. I could spend hours (and a ton of money) in that place. Thanks for bringing this to us!

      Now, what would you do with a rusty old screen door, eh? It might be fun to hang it on the wall as art.

    I love it – you’d lose me for hours in a place like this and I’d probably pcik up at least a few of those tools, even though I have enough already.
    That barn is wonderful šŸ™‚

      I was so happy to see it preserved instead of torn down! There are so many wonderful and funny things in there, I couldn’t begin to show them all! šŸ™‚
