Shopping

The Barn and Stable

Three themed shops, an antique mall and restaurant provide a unique shopping experience in Lake Alfred. Shopping and dining at the ever changing Barn and Stable never gets old.

The best way to describe the Barn and Stable shopping experience is to compare it to an outdoor mall consisting of a Hobby Lobby, Cracker Barrel gift shop, restaurant and maybe a Kirkland’s. Now, add an antique mall, jewelry shop and the fact that this is a family owned business to the mix. Sounds kind of great, right? It is!

A Shopping Spree Times Three

These three sister specialty shops provide a unique shopping destination and we have equal love for all.

The Stable Home Decor

The Stable Home Decor began as an area to showcase hand-made arts and crafts in a corner of The Barn Antiques.

Today, The Stable is the perfect balance of traditional home décor and trendy gift shop staples. It’s filled to the brim with wonderful accessories like buttery soft leather cross body purses, adorned sandals and scarves. With framed prints, lamps, candles, and an abundance of floral arrangements, it almost feels like you are meandering through a designer home. The jewelry and accessories room is the perfect place to find a special gift for your sister, mother or best friend.

Holidays at The Seasons

Spring welcomes colorful florals and Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Easter decorations, then summer ushers in whimsical beach accessories and patriotic 4th of July décor and party goods.

The Back Yard Garden Shop

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but The Back Yard Garden Shop is a lot of fun. It’s an outdoor shopping experience under a canopy of native shade trees; there’s a tree right in the middle of the store! Every nook is filled with seasonal blossoms and blooms, and garden accessories that will make your yard the talk of the neighborhood. You’ll find birdhouses, fountains, arbors, garden flags and much, much more. Their "Florida Friendly" native plant selection is a blessing for those who have had difficulty growing plants and flowers in the Florida sun.
