April 2023

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

If you enjoy happening upon country stores filled with room after room of quaint primitive, antique, and handmade goods, the Village Barn is a must. Throughout the shop, for-sale light fixtures cast a welcoming cozy glow; braided rugs are underfoot, and cubbies, shelves, and table tops showcase ideas of how to display accents at home. Whether you are looking to acquire a sturdy piece of antique furniture or add knick knacks to your collection, there is something for everyone here. Owners Kevin and Kathy Brand decorate the shop seasonally and it’s currently festooned with floral garlands, fairy lights, and baskets and bins of faux blooms ushering in springtime. Pro-tip: grab a baked good for the ride home at Mapleville Farm, just a two-minute drive south.
