Our History

The humble beginning of The Mercantile started with some unique décor pieces for a family wedding. Demand for Barb’s unique pieces and design grew into a thriving prop rental company called Flea and Farm Mercantile.

When looking for warehouse and showroom space, Barb and Dan discovered an unexpected gem in historic Mt. Sterling, Ohio. The property, once owned by the Ohio Farm Bureau, was being used as office and warehouse space for a construction company.

With a little vision, a lot of hard work and investment, the barn has been returned to its original design and transformed into one of Ohio’s most unique, unexpected venues. Barb and Dan are fully committed to making your wedding or event as uniquely special as your dreams for your special day.
