Rhody Gem: Cory Farms Past & Presents

September 2022


What it is:

A charming farmhouse store offering uncommon gifts and antiques sourced locally and from around the US and Europe.

Where to find it:

Look for an 1840s Greek Revival farmhouse on East Main Road. There’s a bus stop right out front.

What makes it a Rhody Gem? 

This “perfectly curated” farmhouse store and antique gallery barn nestled on a two-acre bucolic parcel in Portsmouth was meant for meandering. The farmhouse features four distinctly themed rooms: a nautical room, a baby section, a formal wedding and gift room, and a farmhouse kitchen. New products are beautifully complemented by antique treasures, from English Victorian dining pieces to Swedish pillows made from vintage fabrics. Owner Denys Eftekhar refreshes the merchandise seasonally, drawing inspiration from the colors and traditions unique to each time of year. Of Swedish descent, her Nordic passion makes Christmas shopping a magical experience. “Time and time again, our customers compliment us on creating a ‘place of serenity, joy, and beauty,’” says Eftekhar. “We love to see our antique pieces rehomed and repurposed; their stories alone are often worthy of taking with you.”
