Wonder in Wood, was established in 1998 out of an idea, a dream and most importantly a love and passion for the woodcraft from the Erzgebirge.
Having grown up with the wonderful wooden crafts, my mother having come from Dresden, and appreciating the workmanship more and more as I got older, it became a dream to be more involved with them, hence Wonder in Wood.
The name Wonder in Wood came about because we did not at first want to be known as just a Christmas shop. With all the wonderful crafts that are available, not just for Christmas but for all year round made in wood from the Erzgebirge, we thought the name may highlight this better.
You, our customers said differently. More and more we heard people talking about a Christmas shop, “just like what is in Germany” and so on.
So, The German Christmas Shop was born and we became
Wonder in Wood “The German Christmas Shop” That’s also how the two web site names came about, to our surprise the German Christmas Shop was still available.
Now in 2014 nearly seventeen years later, we have the largest selection of genuine German Erzgebirge crafts in the country and we are proud to be one of only two shops in the world outside of Germany to be a member of the: Fachhandelsring Erzgebirgische Volkskunst
The Association of Retailers of Erzgebirge folk craft.
