The final stop before reaching NYC on our road trip is Barrington, New Hampshire and the store is Christmas Dove. I originally came across Christmas Dove 12 years ago when I visited Boston as they use to have a store there (and I admit I helped boost their sales that day!) Now they have the biggest Christmas store in New England in a small town of Barrington. Christmas Dove has lots of rooms to meander through with plenty of decorated Christmas trees to inspire.
They also have a number of collectible lines, including the biggest range (and nicest display) of Patience Brewster I saw on the trip. You will also find a good range of German wooden decorations, Mark Roberts, Inge Glas and nutcrackers. One of the highlights is their very sweet tree display with old style shop facades creating a great back drop. Christmas Dove is another year round Christmas store so visitors needing a Christmas ‘hit’ in the off season will enjoy a stroll through the premises.
