The E List - self-described as "the excruciatingly opinionated guide to the Connecticut Shoreline" - gave props to The Rustic Barn.
See an excerpt here:
I discovered this spot (and wrote about it) a few years ago, but it bears a repeat appearance on The E List, especially this time of year.
Owner Lisa Martins is a master merchandiser with a retail background, and you’ll be hard-pressed to leave here empty-handed. You’ll find plenty of well-priced giftables, candles, ornaments, and tabletop decor with a fitting farmhouse bent.
Lisa’s husband, Steve stays busy crafting all the custom furniture you see strewn about from recycled barn wood.
Whether you’re on the hunt for ideas for your holiday table or just need some last-minute stocking stuffers, you will find them here.
