The story of Kurt S. Adler begins after the close of World War II when Kurt Adler tried his hand at exporting general goods. As the business grew and European economies began to flourish, he changed direction to importing.
In the 1950's, ornaments were first offered. Beautiful handmade angels from East and West Germany found an enthusiastic audience in America. The line was expanded with glass ornaments from Czechoslovakia, hanging ceiling decorations from Germany, and miniature lights from Italy.
Suddenly, America was ablaze with festive decorations that offered a European flair. The next decade, Kurt S. Adler started importing holiday goods from the Far East. Collectors delighted in colorful snowglobes among other items that came alive with movement and innovation. In the 1970's, holiday decorating was transformed into a fashion business with ornaments crafted in country colors.
Nutcrackers and other collectibles were ushered in during the 1980's and 1990's. Santa was transformed into a fun-loving character that enjoyed hobbies such as windsurfing and skiing. The rapid pace of product development continued after the millennium, with a unique blend of innovation, value and service.
Today, Kurt S. Adler remains a trusted company that has brought to life the memories of yesterday for millions of people.
