We're Kirsten and Hartmut, your Christmas enthusiasts on a mission to sprinkle joy across Canada and the United States!
As a couple from Germany with a shared dream of living abroad, we had our first visit to Canada in 2000. It was during that trip that we both felt in love with this amazing country and its people.
Eventually, in 2011, we made the decision to resign from our jobs in Germany and relocate to Vancouver, which is renowned for being one of the world's most livable cities. Having spent over a decade in Canada, we now have both German and Canadian citizenship and a solid business to live on.
Our Business Idea - Experience the Magic of a German Christmas
Picture this: a couple from the heart of Germany, utterly smitten by the twinkling lights, the aroma of gingerbread, and the warmth of holiday hugs. Fast forward to 2011, we found ourselves in the beautiful city of Vancouver, where we stumbled upon a little piece of Germany – a Christmas market! You can imagine the sparkle in our eyes; it felt like a piece of home right here in Canada.
That magical encounter inspired us to do something extraordinary. We decided to share the enchantment of traditional German Christmas with our new Canadian friends. And guess what? That's how our family-owned business was born! From the iconic Herrnhut Star to timeless ornaments, we handpicked treasures that resonated with the spirit of the festive season.
But you know what truly sets us apart? It's the heartfelt connection we share with our wonderful customers. Every item we import is more than just décor; it's a piece of ur story, wrapped in the spirit of togetherness and celebration. We've been blessed to see smiles light up faces, hear laughter echo through homes, and witness families come together, all because of the magic of Christmas.
We're not just importers; we're storytellers.
Each item we bring to you carries a piece of our heritage and the joy we felt wandering through Christmas markets in Germany. It's like inviting a bit of our family traditions into your home, and nothing warms our hearts more.
So, as you explore our collection, know that you're not just shopping; you're becoming a part of our festive family.
You're embracing the spirit of Christmas that we hold so dear. Together, we're not just celebrating a holiday; we're sharing a piece of our hearts with you.
Thank you for joining us on this magical journey. Your smiles, your joy, and your shared enthusiasm make every day feel like Christmas morning. You, our incredible customers, have showered us with the most beautiful gift – your trust. Your regular 5-star reviews for our product quality and exceptional customer service have become our most cherished compliment.

Let's keep the Christmas spirit alive, all year round! 🎄✨
