In our case, Kurt Huss, laid the foundation stone for the HUSS Incense cone production in the Erzgebirge town of Neudorf. In order to earn a meager extra income in difficult economic times, he began in the winter of 1928/29 as a part-time and in the circle of his family incense made of fine charcoal and natural resins. The "Weihrichkarzle", as they are still called in the Erzgebirge, are still made exclusively by hand. For more information please read here.
We also want to introduce a special friend from Germany and his beautiful vintage nativity figures, Christmas- and Easter items and decoration figures:
See how much love and passion they pay to each of their items.
Special about the material is MAROLIN, which consists of kaolin, clay, natural glue and paper fibers developed by Richard Mahr. Throughout the year in the factory in southern Thuringia busy bees press, pour, smooth, and paint all different kind of figures. Kings, Josephs, Marys, shepherds, angels and innumerable animals arise. Together they fulfill a nativity scene with life.
If you are interested in more please click on the picture below to follow a small trailer. A film about the history is in production and needs your help.
The producer needs a core group of cheerleaders to help him raise $ for the Documentary called Keeping Christmas. All he is asking for is if you could post and repost the link on FB or Instagram over the next 24 days. It´s all about creating a buzz and getting the message in front of as many eyes as possible, and asking your friends to repost, too. Have a look at the following link

The Vancouver Christmas Market is finally back this holiday season! After a one year hiatus, the Vancouver Christmas Market is finally back in 2021 and we are more excited than ever. Downtown Vancouver’s beloved holiday tradition returns for the 11th time from Nov 13 - Dec 24 to Jack Poole Plaza. The market starts one week earlier than usual, for less crowding and even more chances for everyone to attend. For many residents and visitors alike, a yearly stop over at the Vancouver Christmas Market has become a seasonal ritual.
