About Byers' Choice
Byers' Choice Ltd. is an American family-owned and operated Christmas figures and holiday decorations manufacturer located in Chalfont, Pennsylvania. The company is best known for its line of Caroler figures.
Joyce Byers, a former fashion designer and artist, created her first Carolers after a trip to London, where she saw winter scenes on display in many shop windows. When she returned home to Pennsylvania, she began to craft her own Christmas figures out of wire, newspaper, fabric, and clay, which she found in her home.
Joyce used the Carolers to decorate around her own home at Christmas; many visitors commented on how much they liked the figures and asked where they had come from. With the help of her husband Robert and their two sons, Joyce spent the next several autumns making new Carolers to give as gifts for friends and family members.
In the early 1970s, Joyce offered some of her creations for sale at a local Women's Exchange and later at other local stores. Within several years, Joyce and her family alone could no longer keep up with the demand and hired several art students to work during the summer to help Joyce fill orders. The family and their employees set up shop amid sheep and geese in their barnyard and made as many Carolers as they could to send to stores during the upcoming Christmas.
Love the Byers Choice Gingerbread Santa! So different from all the other Santa’s I’ve seen. The Gingerbread House is so beautiful! I have both in the corner of my kitchen and they look stunning together! On Thanksgiving when all the family came over, I received so many compliments. Even my husband agreed on how nice it looked! Thanks Jill! My only suggestion would be if there could be a timer on the gingerbread house. I don’t like having to turn it over when locating the on and off switch. I also have the Elegant Gingerbread house which is again so beautiful! The white icing on it is just stunning!
I love anything Gingerbread and have always thought that it would be really great to someday find a Gingerbread Santa, and now my dream has been realized! It is such beautiful Santa but seeing it in person is really special. Don't miss out on this Santa! Like me, I think you will cherish it always!!
I bought Santa for my friend…but he was so gorgeous I had to buy one for myself! Hoping Mrs Claus is replenished soon!
I have been collecting Byer's Choice Carolers since 1991 and this Gingerbread Santa is made extra special with so much detail I could not stop looking at this Caroler compared to my others. Thank you Jill for spending the time with Joyce in making this Santa and for both of your signatures which is an added bonus.
