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.
The Byers' Choice Santa is so beautiful. I love that he is a Beach Santa. The details make him so beautiful!
Oh Jill, Mr. Beach Santa is so perfect! I have a room in my home that I converted into a home library. I used a navy color theme, because I had 2 paintings a friend painted for me that are mainly in the navy hue family. So I was looking for a piece or two of Christmas decor I could use to give it a little of the holiday spirit during December. And this Santa was perfect! It was very well made, and so cute! I just love it! I am truly happy with my purchase! Just a secret between all of us, I may not take it down!
The Beach Santa arrived beautifully packaged and will be a wonderful addition to our collection! Many thanks!!
I just ordered another for a present! This beautiful Christmas lantern sparkles with delight. It will catch the eye of adults as well as children. I want it to be a Christmas memory for the littles in the family when they visit. I highly recommend it!
As a long time collector of Byer's Choice I think the coastal Santa is made and dressed really special and love that Joyce signed the Caroler.
I do hope that Jill is able to come out with more Carolers with Joyce and making them in a limited edition.
