The Byers’ Choice Story
It was the late 1960’s and Joyce Byers, an amateur artist with a degree in fashion
design, was disappointed in what she was seeing in the stores: aluminum tinsel trees
with garish blue lights. She was looking for holiday decorations with warmth that showed
respect for timeless traditions and her own memories of Christmas.
The first Carolers graced the Byers’ dining room table that
Christmas, and they received compliments from all of the
relatives. On a tight budget, Joyce knew what to make for
presents the following year. A neighbor suggested taking
some to a local store, where they sold quickly. The store was
part of a federation of Woman’s Exchanges and introduced
the Carolers to other exchanges around the country. Soon a
couple of dozen stores around the country were asking Joyce
to supply them with Carolers.
Joyce pressed her husband, Bob, and their two sons into service
to help produce the figures each autumn. It wasn’t long before
the Carolers overwhelmed the dining room table, where the
family gathered to work together. “Every year the house would
be a total wreck, and I’d say that we’re never doing this again!”
remembers Joyce.
But when a downturn in the economy hurt his construction business, Bob looked around
and saw some potential in the Carolers. He decided to devote more of his energies to the
fledgling business, and in 1978, the couple hired their first employee, and turned the garage
into a workshop.
The unique appearance and handcrafted quality of the Carolers quickly gained a following.
Each year, Bob & Joyce would work with their crew of trained artisans up until Christmas
Eve putting the finishing touches on Carolers.
Byers’ Choice is dedicated
to bringing you the finest
handcrafted gifts.
Every Caroler and Kindle
is lovingly produced in our
facility in Pennsylvania to
bring the special warmth
and traditions of Christmas
into your home.
The two sons joined the company upon graduating from college and have played an
important role in the growth of the firm, with Bob working in production and Jeff helping
with marketing and design. “We always say that mom’s hobby has gotten a little out of
control,” jokes Jeff.
Together, the family now oversees a team of 80 artisans in Pennsylvania who handcraft those
same creations that started out on the dining room table many years ago. And although the
Carolers are sold in thousands of fine gift stores around the world, the company still holds
to its starting roots: producing a quality product, at an affordable price, and serving its
customers and the community in the spirit of Christmas.
“One of my favorite parts of any Christmas celebration was singing carols,
and I thought, why not design carolers to use as Christmas decorations?”

Charles Dickens’ classic tale is brought to life with our A Christmas Carol series.
A Christmas Carol and Charles Dickens mean a great deal to everyone at Byers’ Choice.
Scrooge’s declaration, “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year” constantly
guides us. The message to celebrate Christmas and help others is just as important today;
Dickens could not have said it better!

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians
shared an autumn harvest feast which is acknowledged today
as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies.
Although this feast is considered by many to be the very first
Thanksgiving celebration, it was actually in keeping with a long
tradition of celebrating the harvest and giving thanks for a
successful bounty of crops.

Nutcrackers are believed to have originated in the Erzgebirge region of Germany about 300 years ago.
An artisan carved a wooden soldier with a movable mouth to symbolically crack the “hard nut” of the
economic times. The figure quickly became popular throughout the region, Germany and the world.

An Evergreen Christmas
Holly, ivy, pine and mistletoe have been used in Europe since pre-Christian times.
People decorated their homes with these evergreens to chase off evil spirits and to remind them

All children have good days and bad days. It’s part of being a kid. As Christmas comes closer, it’s
important for all children to remember to be extra nice because Santa is watching. He still delivers
lumps of coal if a child is too naughty.

The Belsnickel character originated in the Rhineland. When
people immigrated to Pennsylvania, they brought their German
traditions with them. Amongst the Pennsylvania Germans,
Belsnickel is the character who visits homes prior to Christmas
to check up on the behavior of the children. He often creates
fright because he always knows exactly which of the children
misbehaved. Although he may seem like a harsh character, the
tradition of Belsnickel is an amusing one and rather benign.

The familiar storyline is that children who
misbehaved would get a piece of coal from
Santa instead of a treat in their stockings.
The Lump of Coal tradition started
several hundred years ago and is alive
and well in Pennsylvania, where we
believe that there are many different
uses for Santa’s naughty piece of nature.
Coal can cajole, inspire, remind us and is even
good for a few laughs.

Nodder
Introducing our wind up
Clockwork Nodder Santa.
Clockwork figures first appeared
in the late 1800s and were used
for home entertainment and store
displays before electric power
was available. Our Americanmade Santa stands about 28”
tall and is made of a variety of
materials including wood, pressed
cardboard, goat’s fur, velvet
and paper mache. This piece
was inspired by early merchant
window displays and utilizes the
same key wound, brass, clockwork
mechanism which keeps this
Santa’s head nodding for several
hours making a very pleasing tick
tock sound.
Celebrate the holidays with a selection of beautifullycrafted German Christmas Pyramids, Smokers and
Figurines from Mueller. A longstanding tradition in
German homes, they make for beautiful, handcrafted
decor for the home during the Christmas season. Please
call for information: 215-822-6700.

Byers’ Choice has been handcrafting the Carolers®
Figurines for over 35 years.
In our Bucks County, Pa workshop, we continue
the tradition of making each Caroler by hand ...
the same way that Joyce began on her kitchen table
so many years ago.
If you’d like a peek behind the scenes, our Byers’
Choice Christmas Museum offers an afternoon of
fun and Christmas spirit for both the young and
young at heart!

into the Christmas Museum, with displays of Carolers past and present,
as well as depictions of Christmas traditions from around the world.
Of special note is the observation deck from which you can watch Byers’
Choice artisans bring the Carolers to life (weekdays). Be sure also to view
the Crèche Room, a collection of over 200 nativity scenes from around
the world. Finally stop in at the Gift Shop, where we stock a wide variety of
Carolers and other gifts. Free Admission.
