There are only about four weeks until Christmas and one or the other is already looking for a nice gift for his loved ones – we recommend of course a visit to our showroom: Whether antique, high-gloss fire extinguishers from the 30s to 50s, the latest fashion by Holebrook Sweden, fascinating reading material by Delius Klasing or all-natural perfume by April Aromatics, we always have the right idea for you! The most beautiful present for us is currently being created in one of the best restoration workshops for mahogany boats in Germany! Look forward to the resurrection of Miss Persia – the Gar Wood Speedster delivered to the Shah of Persia in 1936. No matter which gift you choose, we wish our customers and interested parties a wonderful Advent season – see you soon, here at beautiful Möhler Castle.
All friends of Scandinavian fashion should visit our store these coming Saturdays – the new Fall / Winter collection 2018 has arrived! Wonderful colours such as “Oak Melange” or “Sand Melange” set the scene for the colder days and if – after a very long, hot summer – it gets really freezing outside, the popular Holebrook knee socks will come right handy – the so-called “snowflake socks” speak for themselves. So, see you soon in our Holebrook-corners for Ladies and Gents here at Ladies Cottage & Gents Barn.
After a happy get-together at the Street Mag Show in Hanover, a few weeks later, an unexpected, but really nice call from Hamburg reached us – Carlos Kella was asking if he could work with our show-winner to feature it in one of his next publications. And so we are pleased that he and his team and the dear colleagues of Lucky Lola from close-by Gütersloh are our guests on the coming bank holiday, shooting our Chrysler in pin-up style. It goes without saying that we have the right model for this once again. But her we won’t reveal at this point. Be curious about our very first images during our shooting day – as usual on our Insta account of Gents Barn. But above all, look forward to the final result, with which Carlos will certainly hit a bull’s-eye again! We just say, “We wish every day would be Woody-Wednesday!”
Tomorrow, this Sunday, here at our Ladies Cottage, it’s all about parking, guessing, and getting a stamp – the well-known vintage car rally “Hamm erFahren” in favor of the Hamm Hospice will make a stop-over here with us. Well over 120 classic cars and bikes as well as 280 enthusiastic vintage drivers and co-drivers will visit our showroom. We did prepare a nice little challenge for them – they have to take the third special task shortly before the lunch break at our place. We are curious to see who will master our small guessing game best – and thus, will receive the special prize we have prepared just for this occasion. If you can not attend with your classic car yourself, you should still stop by and admire the many two- and four-wheeled, shiny classics – between 11 am and 1 pm the starter field should stop by at Schloss Moehler. We look forward to all visitors.
This evening, Torben from gents Barn and his passion for classic cars and boats was shown on the German TV station WDR! His short spin with the journalist Christian & his team can be seen here on the FB-website (from 3:41min onwards). Enjoy as much as we did and thanks again to the filming team!
What a weekend – it was not only our start into the holidays, moreover did we celebrate this with our participation at one of Germany’s largest US-Car meetings in Hanover with 2.500 other classic cars and their proud owners. At the very end – we were simply speechless! We won the “Best of Show”-Award for our “Black Beast”, our fantastic 1950 Chrysler Town & Country 2-Door Newport Coupé! What an honor! We are very thankful and appreciate this great award! Thank you to everyone involved in making this possible!
Über ein Jahr sind wir nun schon am Start und freuen uns, dass unser Konzept so gut ankommt!

Seit heute ist Gents Barn Mitglied in der Antique & Classic Boat Society, sowohl US-weit, als auch zusätzlich im Northern California/Lake Tahoe Chapter. Die Antique & Classic Boat Society ist weltweit die größte Vereinigung derjenigen Menschen, für die Mahagoni und Bootslack mehr ist als nur ein Holztyp und Pflegemittel. Mit über 12.000 Personen, die ACBS repräsentiert, ist die ACBS eine wichtige Ressource und die(!) Institution für alle Liebhaber klassischer Boote. Der Northern California / Lake Tahoe Chapter ist uns dazu ein ganz persönliches Anliegen, seit unserem ersten Besuch am Lake Tahoe in 1999, als wir staunend vor den wunderschönen Gar Woods am hochgelegenen See in den Bergen von Kalifornien standen. Wir freuen uns, nun auch ein Teil dieser beiden Familien zu sein – als eines der ganz wenigen Mitglieder in ganz Europa.
