The Golden Goose - Where it's Christmas Everyday...

Byers' Choice Carolers

Founder Joyce Byers began making Carolers at her dining room table in the 1960's, when she was inspired to create decorations that spoke of warmth and family traditions. Using a wire hanger, a scrap of fabric, bits of fur and some hair from her children, the first Carolers came to life. Byers' Choice Carolers are handmade in America, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

The Golden Goose has the largest selection of Byers' Choice Carolers in Northern Virginia.

Cries of London
In 1991 Byers' Choice debuted the first caroler in a series entitled "The Cries of London" depicting the street vendors known for the vocal selling of their wares. A new Cries of London figure is introduced each year. One of the reasons this series has been so popular is that the characters are dressed in non-seasonal outfits and can be displayed all year round.
