Doc Roger from IL
Jeff, Thank you very much. Excellent customer service. We plan to give the pyramid to our son and his family. We have had one for about 40 years and our son grew up with it as part of our holiday decor. Now they will have their own for their kids to enjoy growing up to help celebrate their German heritage. Sincerely, Doc Roger

Aloha: Thank you so much for the parts to my nativity tower from Germany. I was amazed at your service. They arrived today, and I want to say they were an almost perfect match. You would have to really take a close look to see the difference. I am so happy, as this was given to me my my mother years ago. It means a lot. Thanks again

Patty, I received the smokers today just in time for her birthday! Thank you for the fast service on such short notice. Thanks again
Donna H from CO
Good Afternoon, First I must apologize for not contacting you sooner. Life just seems to be so busy and I'm afraid I just kept putting off emailing you. I have recently started to collect the mini German smokers and ordered three from you. They came and I absolutely couldn't be more pleased with the quality of my smokers. I love them so much I've decided to keep them out year round and plan to add to my collection as I can.
Because I am new to both your company AND the smokers, I'm wondering if they ever go on sale?  Also, I ordered a box of the mini incense and am wondering if mini incense is available in different fragrances (I know the box I purchased has different fragrances but it doesn't say what color is what fragrance; for that matter the box doesn't mention the fragrances at all - do you know what the different fragrances/colors are? And, like I mentioned, I'd love to purchase mini incense in a number of fragrances but wonder if they're available like that?
Again, thank you so much for the quality of your product and the speed in which you got my order to me. Sincerely, Donna H.
Kristine N from IL
Thank you for the fast arrival of the smoker for my daughters birthday today. Her special day was perfect because of your wonderful customer service. Thanks to you and to your staff!

Thank you so much for carrying such beautiful german handcrafts. I love the curled wood pieces, they are so pretty. I love my German Christmas.
Antje M from CA
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful site. On Christmas Eve my Pyramid was accidentally knocked over and three of the fences destroyed. Inside I was in agony but I didnt want to put a damper on a beautiful Christmas Eve celebration. I have been a fan of yours for a few years now and thanks to your site and your meticulous measurements I was able to order just the right replacements. I just finished repairing the pyramid and it looks great. Thank you
Alex Q from IL
Jeff, Thank you so much for all your top notch service and help. Wishing you and your family all the best Alex Q

Isaac B from PA
Hello and Seasons Greetings, I just wanted to drop a line to thank you for the wonderful service I received with my order I placed last week. I have had my pyramid for a few years and after that time and 4 kids. Well some of the parts magically disappeared. I had thought it would be impossible to find replacement parts for something like that. But when we search later I found your store. You have made my Christmas complete..and my pyramid.
Lei from CA
Dear Patti, I just had to write and say what a wonderful experience its been to do business with you. I have purchased several of your beautiful nutcrackers to keep and to give as gifts. They are greatly appreciated and I have received many compliments. Your nutcrackers make wonderful gifts and those who receive them are always thrilled and delighted. I also appreciate how each order is carefully packaged and always arrives in perfect condition. The nutcracker I received today is absolutely beautiful. I am giving it to a special friend for Christmas and I am sure she will be delighted Thank you for your wonderful products and service and I hope to order more from you in the future. Best wishes to you and yours for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Sincerely Lei

Thank you for making it so clear so that I could get the right ones too God bless you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Joyce from RI
I work in the medical field dealing with people every day. One thing i learned is a kind word goes a long way. It seems to me people are too quick to complain and be rude. They never seem to take the time to thank someone for a job well done. Mom and i were sooooooo satisfied with your company that i just had to share it. By the way my sisters 50th birthday party was last week end and mom gave her the smoker It was a hugh success So once again your ears must have been ringing when we boasted about your company. Thanks again
Sharon A from NC

Anthony C from IA
Hello I never do this but I had to take a moment and tell you how amazed I am with your wonderful perfect store and how pleased I am with my recent purchase - Z085_547_FK Church Tree Choir Pyramid. I have looked at your site for a long time and saved my money which is hard to come by these days to buy one of these charming pyramids. I just cant tell you how thrilled I am with what I received... truly hand-crafted and an heirloom piece that I will pass on to my children. Thank you for making it possible to purchase such a wonderful piece outside of going to Germany in person. Your packaging products and website are beyond compare. I only wish I had more money to spend... Id buy an even bigger one. You can count on my return to your store and my positive recommendations to my friends and family. I envy your business and the happiness you bring to so many people and homes. With complete gratitude Anthony
Heike E from Utah
Thank you so much for the items that I purchased. They ALWAYS come in such wonderfully wrapped and secured containers. I am so pleased and have bragged about your store to my friends. I am needless to say a VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER.

Daniel N from APOFPO
Many thanks for the prompt service and EXCELLENT packing. Purchasing a German Christmas candle pyramid had me sweating I must admit. Everything arrived promptly thank you for shipping to APOFPOs and came with nothing broken bent or scratched. I actually ordered a different pyramid from a different company who didnt have the product to ship it for 6 weeks. All this I understand being the shopping season that it is but they didnt inform me at all during that time nor did they reply to my e-mail inquiries. It wasnt until I called them long-distance that they informed me of the delay and that they would happily cancel my order no charge That wasnt much consolation considering this was an anniversary present for my wife which I now had precious little time to order elsewhere. The package from you arrived the day before our anniversary Praise God and have a great Christmas Respectfully Daniel
John F from Calif

Susanne C from Long Island
After just having placed my last order I received it today. This is my third consecutive order for the bunnies and egg ornaments and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am. Being of German heritage these items bring back memories of many childhood Easters with my father and grandparents. I already have my forsythia branches to hang the eggs on. I am impressed by the merchandise of course its German and why wouldnt I be and very impressed with the handling and fast shipment of my orders. Thank you so very much. It is just a bit early but Frohe Ostern Susanne
Marty and Ming from CA

Claudia from CA

PattyThank you for your promptness and quick response to my internet order Icannot wait to receive the order of Christmas linensMy parents visited Germany a few years back and purchased table linens formy sisters and I as souvenirs of their trip. To make a long story short thepackage of tablecloths was somehow lost in their travels and it hasremained a mystery as to WHO actually lost the package Mom or Dad.Needless to say it has turned into a favorite family story each time it istold and the story usually causes a rather funny argument each time.I am surprising the family at Thanksgiving with this order from yourcompany. I know that these linens will be treasured for years to come as myfamily has much German heritage ..... and now the souvenir story can hopefully have a happy ending and be put to rest once and for allThank you again.

Bob from TX
Hello Patty Thank you for the quick service again I went to Germany again this year and this time for the Christmas Markets. Then went to Lauscha where the glass ornaments are made it was wonderful although the snow was a little daunting at times - I believe they had 3 to 4 feet in the woods on the way to Lauscha - beautiful but not great when youre driving You need to come along some time Thank you again and Happy Holidays Bob
John from TX
The model Smoker we got is absolutely perfect. Its nice to see how much the German craftsmen care about what theyre making.Happy Holidays John

I anxiously wait to buy more from you. thank you for sending these out so quick - great business You will hear from me soon.

Julia from NJ
Hello I just want you to know how thrilled I am with my order The items I ordered are so beautiful. I have been searching products from Germany and I will not order from most stores because they sell items that look like they came from Germany but are made in ChinaI can buy that junk here. And how did you get it to me so fast I will be ordering from you again real soon. Thanks again
Nancy from TN
Dear PattyI have already received the pyramid. The shipping was speedy and the packaging impeccable. The pyramid is beautiful. I am excited about this gift Its a special gift for my godson who fondly remembers the imitation version I used to set up at Christmas when he visited as a child what he never knew was that my fake one constantly had to be pieced and patched - it only survived 4 holiday seasons. Since he is an amateur carpenter - he will surely appreciate the fine workmanship of this genuine one and I expect his own children will be enchanted by it and that it will play an important part in their own holiday memories and traditions.I have had a wonderful experience ordering from you and can heartily recommend you to family and friends.Many thanks and best regardsNancy
Marty and Ming from CA
In a word exceptional The three smokers are outstanding. My wife an I figured the more expensive smoker of the three would be of the highest quaility but the two mini smokers were a surprise. They are perfect in fit and finish. Its hard to believe in this day and age that for under 25 you can get such quality.Shipping was down right inexpensive and fast. It took two days to reach our home in CA. Packaging was first rate as well.We have booked marked this site.Thank you and happy holidays.
Anni from TX
Patty I am so pleased with my Advent Candle holder, it is so beautiful. Thank you for your quick service. My package arrived in two days after I placed the order. I will be a customer of yours for a long time. Happy New Year!

Edward T from FL
Good Afternoon When you pack a box you REALLY know how to pack a box In my life I have never experienced such a professional job of packing Also this extra investment in packing is not passed along to the customer. Even before I found the Christmas Pyramids in the box I was preconditioned to liking them. Then there was the grand finale your pyramids were almost beyond measure in quality workmanship and beauty. Your selling heirlooms and in return your buying satisfied customers for life. Thank you and my best to all.
Julie C from LA
I could not be more thankful to you for providing the beautiful ornaments and pyramids that I grew up knowing. I did not think I would ever see them in this country but finding your site was like going back home for the holidays. I found your site when I was not yet twenty and could afford to purchase just an advent calendar but that has become one of many treasured items I have now purchased from you. Thank you so very much for providing these symbols of holiday peace and joy to all of us who would otherwise not be able to recreate the Christmas feeling of their childhood. It means more than you could know. I look forward to many more years of filling my very own collection of ornaments and Christmas decorations through your wonderful Christkindl-markt. Have a blessed holiday
Jessica from MA
I'd just like to say that I have received my order and I am extremely pleased with the service you provide. The shipping was very fast I was so surprised to have my order as fast as I did. I am astonished at how fast my order was processed and shipped the same day I ordered. There was also a mishap with my billing address and it was clarified the same day. That's service I never see in any other online retailer. Everything was packaged wonderfully and I also can't get over how great your prices are compared to other similar stores. My fiance and I are really into German christmas goods and its is so hard to find good retailers with these products. I will definitely be purchasing more from you in the future. Your items are beautiful and such great quality. I am so grateful to have found your ChristKindl-Markt.
Trudy from TN
Dear Patty this is the second time I placed an order with you and Im simply amazed at the speed with which you fill the orders I ordered the items on Friday afternoon received a confirmation via e-mail a little later and today Monday it has already arrived. I so appreciate your efforts and look forward to a long-lasting relationship You are truly a company where customer satisfaction ranks 1. Thank You.
C. M. from Calif

Marianne from OR
Patty, I am writing to say you should receive an A+ for such a wonderful shopping experience. My package arrived promptly and packed so well I think it could have survived anything! I also appreciated your email telling me it had shipped, so that I could eagerly await its arrival. My husband died two years ago and I have not been in the mood (or have the energy) to get out all the Christmas stuff. My beautiful lighted, twirling nativity is all I need. It is so beautiful. I am hooked and no doubt will order other items. I had a small one years ago but the candles just wouldn't cooperate. Again, thank you for your fine service, wonderful selection and helping to make my Christmas merry and sacred.
Susan from MI
Placed an order a few days ago thinking it may not arrive by Monday (Christmas Eve), but the customer assistant assured me that it would. Well it arrived in a day and a half, what a surprise. Your staff was very friendly and helpful. I subscribed to the newsletter and will be ordering again soon.
Laurie from IN
Shopping at your website was by far the most positive online shopping experience I've ever had - and it's how I'm doing most of my shopping these days! Super fast shipping, personal service and great products are just the tip of the iceberg. Patty was wonderfully helpful and kind. I was so pleased to find candles for my Christmas pyramid which I purchased in Berlin last Christmas. I hadn't been able to find the proper candles and therefore never got to use it. It will certainly be a holiday treasure for years to come. I have already passed along the website to other friends. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
Diane D from GA
I am so happy. My Christmas pyramid is now complete thanks to Patty's quick shipment of replacement candles. They fit perfectly and my nativity pyramid is absolutely beautiful. The service at this site and shop is extremely superb! I will be back. And many thanks to you for adding to our joyful Christmas. This brings great memories of our visits to the Bavarian Christmas markets. God bless and peace to all.
Sharon H from MA
I received my "basket peddlar" smoker yesterday and just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. It is so charming and the quality is excellent. I also appreciate your prompt service. I will definitely be returning to your website to order again.
Heike from MA
Dear Patty, I wanted to write you some time ago, and thank you for the shipment of the Plauener Lace Curtains I purchased. I really appreciated how nice the curtains were packaged and how they arrived at my house!
Evelyn A from CO
Patty, I must give you high praise since it is well deserved. Today, with so many businesses not being as friendly, you most certainly do stand out. I could tell each time I ordered from you that you have such a nice personality and are friendly to deal with. That goes a long way with me and I appreciate that. So - I do wish you a wonderful week ahead and Spring also. Happy Spring to you too!
Evelyn A from CO
Hi Patty, I wanted to write you and tell you I received my cute little German figurines yesterday already. Took only 2 days to get here to Colorado. You have wonderful service and I love your products. SO cute. I had ordered a Smoker from you before Christmas and will most definitely order from you again during the year if not sooner. Again, the package was nicely done - all came perfect and the figurines were so well packed also. LOVE them. I mentioned your site to my cousin in Georgia and she will most likely also order very soon. We love all these figurines and Smokers. Wish I could buy about 20 of them at one time, but need to restrain myself and collect a bit slower. Thanks again and also for your friendly service. You are so nice to deal with on the phone also. All the best,
Elinor S from CA
Hi Patty, I loved the things (that arrived today) from your store so much that I convinced my fiance to get a little pyramid for his parents for Christmas. :-) Thanks so much,
Michelle C from VA
Dear Patty, I'm so impressed and delighted with my recent order that I'm taking a moment out of my crazy day to say: "Job well done!" Your promptness with my delivery, the quality of your products, and the personal attention to detail (my little gift which suddenly made me feel special, when I've been shopping for everyone else) made my first-time experience of shopping with you a delight. I will be back!!! Again, many thanks,
Mary D from AZ
Thanks so much, Patty, and Merry Christmas to all of you at ChristKindl-Markt.

Hi Patty, Thanks for letting me know the Baker Nutcracker is on his way. My son is just 20 (well almost 21) and is a bakery manager/baker at the local Quality Market Grocery store here in our small town . He decided that he thought collecting nutcrackers would be fun, but only ones that really work - and when I saw the Baker Nutcracker I knew it was the perfect gift to start his collection. I'll sign up for the newsletter and give my son your website after Christmas. Thanks again,
Dar L from PA
Thank you, I received the package on the 15th. It has been a great experience working with you. Hope to do business again.
Ann M from CA
Hi Patty, We received the pryramid on Thursday. Very quick delivery. Thanks. We gave the pyramid as a gift. The pyramid is beautiful and was very much appreciated. Thank you for making your service available online, and shipping so fast!
Mike B from VA
Patty, Thanks, just received the Pyramiden Kurzen. Danke Schön. Heilige Weinachten!
Christy P from CA
Patty, Thank you for your quick response. I have just sent an order. You have so many beautiful pyramids. Have a wonderful Holiday.
Terri C from UT
Hi Patty, I got it yesterday and it's beautiful. Thank you so very much. Froliche Weihnachen (I hope I spelled it all correctly-I've been home about 5 months now and it's been a year since last Christmas when I really knew how to spell it.) Take care,
John C from NY
Thanks for the great service on the spanbaums. I'm also looking for a 10-12" traditional simple nutcracker. Can you sugest anything. Thanks,
Lori M from NY
Patti, Thank you for letting me know that my order was shipped. I signed up for the newsletter also. Looking forward to hearing from you periodically.
Terry H from NY
Thank you! They ARE beautiful! I've started hinting already!
Peter W from CA
Finding your site was a nice surprise. I have a few old pyramids from years gone by but my daughter and I will be picking another one shortly from your site…
Elinor S from CA
The little pyramid arrived today and once again I am awed by your efficiency. :-) It's adorable. Thank you so much! Stay warm in the snowy north!
Natalie S from NB Canada
Hello Patty. It was fun looking around the new site--so many nice new things to look at! I like the way the items have been grouped according to theme and the Christmas tree borders add a warm, festive look--nice touch! Be sure to keep warm and we will be in touch again soon!
John M from OH
Many thanks. You all have taken care of us for several Christmases now. Have a great Christmas.
Ann from OH
I was so happy to finally find a company that has the outhouse smokers: I've been looking for them, on and off, for about 2 and a half years! Thank you, again, Patty. I look forward to receiving the order and to ordering from your company again. Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year to you!
Katherine K from VA
Patti, Thanks for your note. I'm glad to have found your site. We have a birdcatcher smoker bought at the Christmas Market in Frankfurt and had nearly run out of incense cones. You are the only ones I found who specify that you sell Knox pine incense. Thank you and happy Christmas & a blessed new year,
Debbie DaS from NJ
terrific... THANKS!! :) I had a bunch of stuff sent to my parents in FL. I greatly appreciate your prompt response. Thanks and Frohliche Weihnachten!!!
Jane V from NJ
I see that one of the pyramids comes without the figures glued and I would love to know if there are any other pyramids that come that way so that I could put my own tiny wooden figures collected in childhood long ago on the pyramid. Thanks in advance for your reply.
Matt A from WA
Hi Patty, My wife opened the pyramid today and loved it.
Jennifer McC from IL
Hello, I received the package today. Thank you. It was a last minute idea for a Christmas gift so it came just in time. Merry Christmas.
Stephanie A from VA
Patty, Merry Christmas!! I received the Pyramid I ordered, which was a gift for my mother. It's beautiful and she loves it. I'm so glad I found your website!! My mother has been wanting a new Pyramid for years now and she was so excited this morning, so thank you for helping us give her that gift. We also found the little Wendt and Kuhn angels, the ones with the instruments-- my sisters and I all had a few each when we were little, but over the years they lost pieces or drumsticks and such. My mother ordered us new ones from your site, which was a fabulous gift as well. I hope you've had a very Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
Janet W from LA
Thanks, Patty! I love the personal touch you give to your business. I lost all of my Christmas stuff to the 17th street canal levee breech...just washed right out of my house. Of all of my collection, the German pyramid was the thing I most wanted to replace........ We did get it on 12/21....rushed home and set it up. It is wonderful! Happy Holidays,
Ben M from IL
Hey Patty, I've already received the parts and everything is perfect. Thanks again, and all the best for the new year!
Mary D from AZ
Hello Patty, I just want to thank you for getting the lovely German pyramids to my daughters in time for Christmas. I am of German descent, have lived in Germany and taught high school German. Therefore, we have quite a few German Christmas ornaments in our home. This Christmas was the first that our younger daughter did not spend with us, as she went to be with her fiance’s family. When she opened the Christmas pyramid she called immediately, saying that it now felt a little more like “home for Christmas”. Our older daughter is married with two young children, so they of course were enchanted by the turning angels of the pyramid. Thanks for making their Christmases merry, and Happy New Year.
Kate P from US Military
Hi Patty, Our incense arrived today and we are really enjoying it--thanks so much!
Jolanta VanD from VA
I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks so much and Yes, I will sign up to be on the mailing list. Christmas went so-o-o-o-o fast.
Heidi B from UT
Again, I cannot praise you and your business enough. I tell everyone about you! Thank you for so quickly getting back to me about my order. I truly appreciate it....... ps .. I love the new smokers you have gotten in that have the smoke coming from hot food or grills, etc. Just a little twist on the traditional ones I usually see. Take care!
MaryBeth M from WI
Thanks for the update - looking forward to getting the bugs!
Lee W from OH
Thanks Patty! How do I sign up for the email list? Can you put me on it? Thank You!
Sharon D from Toronto Canada
Hi Patty Just a note to let you know I received the package. Thank you again for your assistance.
Patti H from London UK
Hello! I saw a little smoking gnome that I wish to purchase, is it possible to have it sent to London and can I pay you with a visa credit card ? Thank you to let me know, I will have to ask my friend which one she prefers, and then I shall place my order! Sincerely yours
Pam K from TN
My father brought me a pyramid from Oberammergau in the early 1970's. A tragic fire destroyed it two weeks before Christmas this year. We considered it a precious family treasure. I have decided to try and replace the pyramid for our family's future. I talked to my family last night and they are excited that we can replace the pyramid. Our first inclination was not to replace the pyramid because our memories of my father hand carrying it from Germany were so strong ... he was like a living-breathing Father Christmas and our memories of him were so intertwined with the pyramid. But now that a bit of time has passed, we realize that nothing can destroy the best memories and precious gifts he gave to us ... and a new pyramid will be a reminder of all of this as we pass it down to future generations ... I really appreciate your willingness to help us with this ... it's a lot more than a matter of commerce! So, Thanks again ... wishing you wonderful blessings ........... The pyramid arrived and it is perfect! We have at last reclaimed our house and having the pyramid to stand in honor of the one my father brought to me so long ago, makes everything ok. We are looking forward to Christmas when it will be the highlight of our festivities. Please know that I will remember and continue to appreciate your caring service each year when I unpack the pyramid. With gratitude, Pam
Deb F from PA
Hello - Everything was beautiful. I thought maybe later in the year I would look again for Christmas ideas. I like the music boxes. I'll talk to you Monday more about it. I have something to look forward to now. Thank you
Natalie S from New Brunswick Canada
Hello Patty! I received my figurine yesterday and, wow!, great packaging -- even better figurine! Thank you for all your help. If we are not in contact sooner rather than later, please let me know when another "Girl with Aster" comes in. As always, it has been a pleasure dealing with you. I'm sure we will again soon.
Warren from TX
Thanks Patty. Glad to know somebody’s looking out for me. The Nutcracker I bought from you at Christmas scored me a lot of points. I may not see the doghouse until summertime this year! Thanks again.
Cindy R from DE
I just picked up the candles at the post office - they fit perfectly! I'm so glad - I was worried they wouldn't fit. I didn't realize there'd be so many - I'm set for quite a while. Thanks so much
Catherine B from MD
yeahhhhhhh the pyramid arrived this morning, i love it. thanks
Patricia C from OH
I received the order and all are great!
Judy B from MD
Hi, the shipment arrived today and I am impressed with your careful packing. Everything arrived in good condition. I have not seen a smoker with the surface the shepherd has so I guess it is supposed to be wool; I have seen other work by the carver. Please keep me on your mailing list. You have a nice variety to select from. Thanks again.
Maryanne B from CA
Hi Patty, I can see already that it is going to be a pleasure to do business with you. I can hardly believe that you shipped my item today! I was glad I took the time to read your home page (about us). Anyway, I didn't see how to sign up for your emails. Could you please direct me on your site? Thank you for your prompt service and have a great weekend! Regards..
Sheryl S from MO
Hi Patty, Thanks so much! My husband's parents received the cuckoo clock, and they just love it! My Mother-in-law has wanted a cuckoo clock for a long time, and so we decided that would be the perfect gift this year. Thanks again!
Bill B from PA
Dear Patti, The package arrived today. Thank you! Regards.
Catherine B from Canada
Yeahhhhhhhhh! My order came to-day. Thanks Patty, I really like the miner and angel. The mini pyramid is perfect, same size as my other one. I think I need to stop for a while, unless of course something great comes up. Have a great day, please keep in touch.
Patti T from NC
Hi Patty ~ Wanted to let you know I received the package yesterday and thank you so much for the excellent, fast service! It's been a pleasure and hope to shop with you again. Thanks again.
Ann W from VA
Hi, Patty! I really love your shop: it has so many unique things, and your service is impeccable! I got it in perfect condition yesterday (Wednesday). Thank you so much for such good service. If you need any references, please count me as one! Your company's selection, good prices, and exemplary service are something of which you should be very proud. I will definitely buy from your company in the future.
Noel W from MA
Patty, I think honey candles are the best bet. I appreciate your looking things over very carefully. Many thanks.
Judy B from MD
The box arrived today! Thanks for the great packing and prompt shipping... everything looks in fine shape and thanks also for the incense.
Becky R from IN
Hi. I received the box. Thank you! The new paddles are nice. The original ones do clean up somewhat with soap and water. You go above and beyond with customer service. My pyramid looks lovely now.
Kyle S from NJ
Thank you so much for answering my order questions. I will be sure to shop at your site again.
Ferris A from NY
Hello, Patty. I just wanted you to know that I received my order today. I inspected it, and it seems to be in perfect condition. It should make a wonderful Christmas gift. Thank you.

Barb H from BC Canada
Patty, Thank you for your angels and good wishes.
Beth B from RI
Patty, I just wanted to thank you for my wonderful Pyramid. I ordered it on Monday night, you mailed it Tuesday, and I received it on Friday! I am very impressed with the customer service of your shop, in addition to the wonderful product. Thank you very much - enjoy the upcoming holidays.
Elizabeth R from NH
Order received. Thank you for such quick service.
Margaret E from FL
Having never used your site before, I purchased just one item which arrived today after ordering just 2 days ago. I loved it! Is your site relatively new or have I just missed it. Because my family is all of German descent, I am partial to many of the items. Was lucky enough to go to Germany about 10 yrs. ago and if I believed, I would be sure I was a happy German hausfrau in my previous life. Thanks for the good service -- I am sure I will be back! Happy Holidays to you.
Catherine B from Canada
Thanks Patty! By next spring I'll be ready to purchase a hanging pyramid. I have no room left for regular ones except squeezing in some mini's. Naturally being Canadian I had to have an English Drum Major Nutcracker from the guards. Thanks again.
Pam K from OR
Dear Patty, I received the package of light bulbs today. I popped one in the arch, and bingo, it is exactly the right size. Thank you .... very kind and considerate of you!
Ann Marie from NY
Wow that was fast! I just ordered them last night! Thanks a bunch.
Father Tim H from KS
The mugs that I ordered arrived last week. All the mugs are wonderful. Thanks for doing such a great job. You have helped to make some of my older parishioners be very happy this year for Christmas. They will be very surprised with these special gifts. God bless and have a good Thanksgiving. With much gratitude.
Catherine B from Ontario
Patty, you are the best. My nutcracker and mini angels came to-day. They are wonderful. I have the mini miner windmill, so now it is complete with the angels. Thanks again, happy thanksgiving.
Becca T from UT
We just received the Wise Men Advent Calendar! Thank you so much for such a fast delivery! It was well packaged and looks to be in great condition! We are excited to put it to good use! Thanks again!
Cathy F from PA
I received my order this afternoon. WOW what great service.

Gina T from CA
Patty- Just to say that my first order arrived today and I am delighted with everything I ordered. They are fabulous. I love them! Many thanks.
Bob W from PA
Hello Patty! I ordered the 3 Level Christmas Pyramid with Angels on Top and candles to go with it ! The green accents look great, I think my daughter (and her husband) will love it ! I requested it be shipped to them in Memphis... is it possible to add a note "Merry Christmas from Dad" to the package ? I would really appreciate it. I travel to Germany about every other year and have visited the KWO factory shop in Olbernau and a number of shops & factories in Seiffen... have you been to Seiffen or Olbernau? I've been there two times for a day only, next time maybe to stay a little longer! Thanks Patty, good to email with you. I hope you have a wonderful season (for business) and a great holiday!
John V from PA
Hi Patty, The mini-Santa’s arrived today, and they are AWESOME! Thanks for handling this situation so well, it makes for good customers! Thanks again and have a most Merry Christmas! All my best for the New Year
Judy P from MI
Thank you. Received today. You are terrific to work with, we will continue to be your customer!!
Bob W from PA

Fey and Fred H from MN
Good Morning Patty, The pyramids arrived and they are just beautiful!!! The Nativity Pyramid is perfect. Assembled easily and turns very smoothly ... I have been looking for years for these pyramids. I am so happy that you carry them. I look forward to buying more things from your company in the future. Happy Holidays
Evelyn A from CO
Hi Patty, Thank you so much for sending my order off so quickly. Wow, that is fast. I am really impressed !!! Your customer service is excellent and I can hardly wait to get my little German Smoker. You have a wonderful selection also of great holiday gifts. Since I cannot go to Germany right now and buy this little Smoker - this is the next best thing. Thank you again, and very happy holidays to you and yours. Sincerely, Evelyn
Brad and Mary C from OR
Patty, Thank you for shipping the nativity pyramid so quickly. We have received it and it is just what we wanted. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Merry Christmas.

Traci N from MS
Thank you so much for this website!! I have searched and have had family members search for pyramid candles. They are the same candles I place on my Christmas tree! My home is now complete and ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Having the candles for Christmas Eve really means a lot to me. I must also say, that your website is very easy to move around and understand. I also began to miss Germany even more. Thank you again for your help, and I know I will be back! Frohliche Weihnachten!
Misha and Kristen B from MA
Thank you for your superb service. Merry Christmas to you, too, Patty.
Mac from US
Thanks P: Good customer service is an oxymoron these days. You prove otherwise. Thanks.
Meg S from MD
Patty, Thank you for your great service and communication! It makes shopping online a pleasure!
Jerry B from FL

Bob S from VA

Paul B from NC
Hi, Patty - many thanks. You are the best. I promise I'll be back to shop in the future!
Susan W B from VA
Hi Patty, Thanks so much for shipping the candles out so quickly! Happy Holidays.
Baerbel C from LA
Dear Patty, I'll get my order under way immediately. I am an expat German, married to an American citizen in Louisiana. It is impossible to get the "real" wax Christmas tree candles down here - everything is "electric". Your Pyramidenkerzen are just the right size to fit into our German candleholders on the tree. My compliments on your other selections as well, especially your choice of ornaments from the Erzgebirge. Looks like home to me! Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.
Paul L from CA
My replacement Pyramid is beautiful. No problems at all. Thank you for your consideration and wonderful customer service from a now life long cutomer. Sincerely, Paul
Evy N from CA
Thanks for the help and friendly communications.
Julie VanD from USA
I don’t know if you remember me, but I had ordered a two-tier Pyramid last year around Christmas and it didn’t work and I had to send it back. Of course, when it came back the holidays were about over so I just put it in the closet and hoped for the best for this Christmas. We took it out of the box, put everything together, and voila! It spins like a dervish! And it’s beautiful, too. So just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my Pyramid. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
Tamara B from CA
Thanks so much! We love your Christmas pyramids--my kids look forward to lighting them every night at this time of year.
Steve O from TX
Thank you so much for getting our candles to us overnight! We really enjoyed running our pyramids pretty much non-stop! Froehliche Weihnachten!!!
Cheryl H from MD
Patty, Just wanted you to know that they (candles) were the correct size. Thank you so much and I will keep your website bookmarked for further purchases.God Bless.
Jane H from NY
Thanks, Patty. Your service has been outstanding and I will be sure to order from you again! Happy, healthy New Year to you. Sincerely Jane.
Sally R from CA
Thank-you so much... I received my order today.... amazingly fast. The workmanship is beautiful.
Joyce M from CA
Merry Christmas, Patty! And, a merry one, indeed! My brother's package arrived in San Diego yesterday! And, beautifully packaged, he said .......... I can't thank you enough for the personal attention you gave to my order. I'll be back to ChristKindl-Markt for more German Christmas treasures so memorable to us. Thanks again for all your effort. By the way, my brother was thrilled! God bless you
Rob C from VA
Hi Patty! I received the smoker today and love it, thank you!
David D-B from UK
Patty, Received the bulbs today - thank you! Very fast, friendly & efficient service - will recommend & probably use you again in the future. Kind regards
Kathleen B from TX
Patty, I just wanted to let you know that I spoke to you over the phone about a year ago after Jeff helped me figure out what size fan blades I needed for my pyramid. I ordered just two at that time to see if they would work and you were going to hold the rest. Obviously, you never heard from me after that until now, and I hope you had put those fan blades back into circulation when you didn’t hear from me. Sorry about that. So I now have my order on my way. Thanks for the good service and personal attention you give to your customers. And your website is so wonderful! I’ve already told several friends about it. Thanks.
Lorraine M from CA
Patty - Thank you... I received the medium candles and they fit perfectly, so I am all set for next year. I will also keep your store in mind for Christmas gifts next year. I love all of the German crafted items.
Judy B from MD
Patty, I just want to let you know all arrived in good shape yesterday and they are a wonderful addition to my growing collection. One of these days, I want to go to the area, but I am not sure I am up to driving as I did years ago. I think I am on the newsletter list, but can you check. Also, I'll check the new smokers you will be getting. I like seeing the different makers and your pictures are excellent so I can see the detail. I am a photographer so I appreciate that. Thanks again.
Mike R from MN
Hi Patty - You are right, the new hub and paddles work great! My wife is very happy. Thanks again for the way you handled everything. I will be back for more stuff next Fall.
Patricia B from WA
Good Morning Patty, I just wanted you to know that the smokers came today and they are beautiful. Thank you so very much. I am so glad I found your website. What a beautiful addition to my collection. Thank You again and you will surely be hearing from me again soon.
