2016 Byers’ Choice Carolers have arrived!

106w-106m-106g-106bIt’s a good day here at the teashop when the Byers’ Choice Christmas Carolers arrive!  Byers’ Choice is such a special American-made company.  The carolers and the story behind the carolers mean a lot in a world of mass production.  So it’s a good day when we are thankful to add another hand made artisan crafted piece to our little Teashop.

We offer 20% off our carolers whether you standing in the store or shopping for them online.  Free Shipping with online Byers’ Choice Caroler orders, too!


As we are crafting a new space in the Teashop for our Artisan Tea Cans and creating an ornament room that is being carefully decorated with artisan glass ornaments – retired from Italy, Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. Well, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!

Shop early with the carolers.  We only have one caroler per design.  Auntie Esther, The Black and Gold Family, and the 2016 Ugly Sweater Family!  There are so many beautiful ones!
