About Us

Started with a simple idea, The Christmas Haus opened in June 2002 as The Summer House Collection. The idea on which the store was founded is to offer quality merchandise, at a good value, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We found that "atmosphere" in New Oxford, PA in the form of an 1891 brick house and a charming town. The "quality" and "value" are traditions we have insisted upon since we opened our first store in 1992.

At The Christmas Haus you will enjoy an authentic German Christmas experience. Many of our ornaments come from a family whose history in glass blowing goes back to 1596. Many of the molds they use date from 1850-1895 and offer a classic look for your tree. You will also find German smokers, nutcrackers, pyramids and papier mâchè Belznickles, all made by individuals in small workshops in Germany. "Our selection always changes and grows," says owner Roger Lund. "Satisfying our customers is our primary goal, and we will not rest until we meet those needs."

If you plan a visit to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, we are only 9 miles away, in the charming Borough of New Oxford on the way to both Lancaster and York. New Oxford is known as "the little town with the beautiful circle," in addition to being the "Antiques Capital of Central Pennsylvania" with over 500 antiques dealers and several bed and breakfasts in town.
