with a simple idea, The Christmas Haus
opened in June 2002 as The Summer House
Collection. The idea on which the store was
founded is to offer quality merchandise, at a
good value, in a friendly and relaxed
atmosphere. We found that "atmosphere" in New
Oxford, PA in the form of an 1891 brick house
and a charming town. The "quality" and "value"
are traditions we have insisted upon since we
opened our first store in 1992.
The Christmas Haus you will enjoy an
authentic German Christmas experience. Many of
our ornaments come from a family whose history
in glass blowing goes back to 1596. Many of the
molds they use date from 1850-1895 and offer a
classic look for your tree. You will also find
German smokers, nutcrackers, pyramids and papier
mâchè Belznickles, all made by
individuals in small workshops in Germany. "Our
selection always changes and grows," says owner
Roger Lund. "Satisfying our customers is our
primary goal, and we will not rest until we meet
you plan a visit to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, we
are only 9 miles away, in the charming Borough
of New Oxford on the way to both Lancaster and
York. New Oxford is known as "the little town
with the beautiful circle," in addition to being
the "Antiques Capital of Central Pennsylvania"
with over 500 antiques dealers and several bed
and breakfasts in town.
