Welcome to the Country Parlor Holiday Home Show!

Welcome to the new online home of the famous Country Parlor Holiday Home Show!

The Country Parlor Holiday Home Show begin 18 years ago in the front parlor of Barbara Blossey-Chuvalas' turn of the century Italianate farmhouse on the North Fork of Long Island. A basket maker by trade, Barbara created a venue through which she could not only sell her handmade wares, but also highlight the work of the many talented artists who live along the shores of Peconic Bay and beyond.

The Country Parlor Show soon outgrew the confines of Barbara's home. She moved it to the historic Grange at the junction of Sound Avenue and Church Lane in Riverhead. The creaky old building was transformed into wonderland of holiday and year-round treasures -- from Barbara's baskets to quilts, embroidery, hooked rugs, penny rugs, hand-woven scarves, pincushions, birdhouses, cookies & candies, jams & jellies, sachets, -- the lists goes on and on!

The big news this year: the Country Parlor Holiday Home Show is moving! Barbara has found a bigger and better home for her beloved sale at the historic Naugles barn at Hallockville Museum Farm: 6038 Sound Avenue, Riverhead, NY 11901 631-298-5292
