Jim Shore

Hand-painted figurines designed by artist Jim Shore combine elements of folk art with a vibrant color pallet. So you can celebrate tradition with these stand-alone figurines or ornaments.

Old World Christmas

This collection of blown glass ornaments is all about celebrating the accomplishments and individuality of those you love. Therefore, they're the perfect gift for graduations and weddings.

Christopher Radko

Each  glass ornament is hand-crafted in an artisanal Polish factory. Skilled artists and craftspeople use techniques that date back to the Renaissance. Meticulous attention to detail is given through each step, from glass blowing to silvering to hand-painting. Therefore, the entire process takes weeks to complete.


Now these charming, hand-painted porcelain bisque figurines play with the Fisher Price® toys you used to love as a child. The cherub-like faces of Snowbabies make them irresistibly joyful and perfect for gift giving or collecting.

Possible Dreams Santas

These exquisite Santas are made with a stiffened cloth technique to create fine sculptural detailing. They go from classic activities like making toys to golfing.

Byers' Choice

The individual care given to each handcrafted caroler in the Byers’ Pennsylvania workshop results in distinctive figures that capture the warmth and spirit of Christmas and other holidays. Visit our Byers' Choice page for more background on this beloved collectible.
