About Us

This is our story

Helmut & Nicole

Founded in Munich, Germany in 1976, Bavarian Workshop is well known for its classic Christmas tree ornaments, aromatic Spice Wreaths, colorful Jumping Jacks, traditional Straw decorations, Frankincense and Spice bags, and other unique handmade crafts, which embody the holiday spirit.

While Bavarian Workshop is recognized for our Christmas decorations, we also features year-round ornaments, keepsakes and jewelry, which make the perfect gift anytime.

When Bavarian Workshop joined the local Christmas markets across North America almost two decades ago, we started to feature select products by other southern Germany based artisans.

In addition to our own exclusive product line, we recently began featuring a collection of hand painted pewter ornaments. With the introduction of these exciting, new gifts, our new company, Bavarian Tradition was born.

Because our loyal costumers asked for the opportunity to purchase our unique items year-round, we’re pleased to open our online shop.
