Country Chic


Nowadays, Western wear is popular around the world, in rural areas as well as cities and suburbs. One current craze of the country category is the infusion of upcycling, adding a dash of chic bohemian to the already cool wardrobe.

Creating something new from something old inspired Lacey McGraw into opening The Barn Door Boutique & Decor in Canby. She had been handcrafting old leather belts into exclusive bracelets and earrings for a small shop in Washington. Serious demand for her cool “new” accessories actually rerouted her course from college to entrepreneurship. Thankfully, her parents were on board and ready to help.

It took a month of night-shift remodeling the former downtown office space — taking care to not disturb adjoining tenants during regular business hours. McGraw and her family worked into the wee hours of the next morning. In April of 2019, the hard work paid off; The Barn Door finally opened its doors.

The first day of business, she sold 75% of her inventory. Scrambling to design and order more items to fill the store, McGraw quickly connected with a number of local artists excited and inspired by what she was doing. After about nine months or so, she had a good idea of what she could sell inside her now buzzing boutique.

As with many other businesses affected by the events of 2020, The Barn Door was no exception. But thanks to a generous donation she received from the City of Canby, McGraw’s business has been able to survive. Online sales have also bolstered her success.

Whatever you’re seeking, Barn Door has it covered — in leather, linen, fringe, pearl snaps, animal print, etc. With a focus on women’s clothing, accessories, jewelry and decor, McGraw also sells some items for men and accessories for dogs. Customers shopping for women’s clothing can find jeans, shorts, skirts, rompers, stylish tops, T-shirts, tanks and more. McGraw says current summer trends include midi dresses, girly boots and lots of neutral tones.

Because almost everything in the store is locally handmade, the inventory constantly changes, which makes stopping by on a regular basis a good idea, especially if you are trying to stay up to date with the latest wrinkle in Western wear.
