Kringle Christmas Shoppe

Bucks County Latvian Church ~1142 Apple Road in Applebachsville


If you've never been to Kringle Christmas Shoppe,

you're are in for a pleasant surprise.  Each year,

over 1000 visitors pack the little church annex to see

what our show and sale is all about.  Hidden back in the "hills of Upper Bucks", no wonder we're called the area's "Best Kept Secret"!  Folks are constantly amazed by the talent in our pool of strictly-regional, sometimes nationally acclaimed talent... and it comes together with a lot of good old fashioned hospitality, especially for you, in time for the gift-giving season. 

Friday December 2, 1:00-8:00

Saturday December 3, 10:00-4:30

Sunday December 4, 12:30-4:30

   You'll find  beautiful works of over 30 participants. These include sculpture, fine art, pottery, quilts, jewelry, stationery, home & garden decor, fashion apparel & accessories, holiday ornaments, pantry items & sweet treats and many more authentic handcrafts.

Vendors and local businesses come together to donate hundreds of dollars in products and gift certificates that are skillfully  gathered  into  overflowing raffle baskets and certificate wreaths. Taking even a dollar chance on any of the magnificent baskets at Kringle gives you the the best odds of winning anywhere around..

Stop by our hospitality kitchen to grab a complimentary coffee, cocoa and sweet treat as you feast your ears on continuous live holiday music. Your purchases support Haycock Historical Society, a non-profit education and preservation group.  Feel good about buying quality local items while supporting a worth cause.

Cash, Visa/MasterCard & approved checks are accepted.

When you come, be sure to visit our host facilities Latvian Kiosk for culture, a glimpse of traditional folk costumes,  beautifully re-worked Baltic amber jewelry and Latvian foods.  Proceeds from sales of these items as well as the Latvian lite lunch - hot dogs & Latvian sauerkraut  go to the congregation's ear-marked charities.

Please sign our guest book to receive annual event notices when you visit.

If you are a Haycock Township resident or live in the contiguous towns/townships and paint, sculpt,  photograph, author published writing or  create hand-made items of superior quality and wish to participate as a vendor, we accept a few new vendors each year as space allows. Please download our New Vendor Application.  Potential vendors must be juried by our panel for entry as alternating year participants.  Jury dates for 2016 are:  10/6, 10/27, 11/3 & 11/10.  Sessions are held at our Stokes house headquarters at 1300 Apple Road, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on each of the days.
