Live Nativity Returns to Byers’ Choice

Byers’ Choice, makers of the handcrafted Caroler figurines, is continuing its holiday season events with a live nativity for Bucks County-area fans this weekend, Saturday Nov. 17 through Sunday, Nov. 18.

Families of all ages are invited to the company’s Chalfont, Pa. gardens to get up close to sheep, lambs, donkeys and other Nativity animals.

And, inside Byers’ Choice’s Christmas museum, guests can see a collection of more than 250 nativities from around the world, which will be on display throughout the holiday season.

“Our Live Nativity weekend last year was a huge hit, so we were happy to invite these wonderful animals—and our local fans—back to our Bucks County location,” said Joyce Byers, founder, designer and mom of Byers’ Choice. “We also debuted our first-ever Caroler nativity at Byers’ Choice this year, which will be available this weekend in our Gift Emporium.”

No reservations are required to attend the event and admission is free, but Byers’ Choice is asking guests to bring a canned food item as a donation to help stock a local food pantry as part of the company’s annual food drive.

In addition, visitors who want to capture the holiday memories with their families can also take advantage of the opportunity to have professional portraits done on the Dickensian London street scene that’s part of the Byers’ Christmas museum. Edwards Studios returns to take these photos, and appointments can be made by calling the company at 215-673-9966 or visiting www.coolstudio.com.

The Byers’ Choice museum, workshop, gardens and Gift Emporium, offering the widest selection of Byers’ Choice products anywhere, are open year-round for fans. For more information, please visit www.byerschoice.com.

MineField Village is an actual minefield-infested area in Cambodia, where women didn't have many job opportunities. Until @landminedesign came along. They taught women to create these beautiful delicate pieces of jewelry out of rolled paper beads. Check out 620 in Handmade to learn more about this amazing story. @ny_now
