Welcome to the magical world of

Quality Holiday Decorations by TRC Designs, Inc.
Handmade in the heart of Central Virginia

We’ve spent literally hundreds of hours to fill our cottages with secrets and details. Each cottage has a small hole on its underside designed to borrow a standard bulb from your tree. Upon lighting your cottage, you’ll immediately discover the first secret—a little scene inside each and every one. But that’s only the beginning… Throughout the collection you’ll find all sorts of other surprises to delight and mystify in the joy and discovery of all that is Christmas!


 Take a tour around the village!


 Discover the secrets hidden in your cottage...


We've started a gallery of pictures YOU'VE sent us! We love seeing how you use your Ginger Cottages, music boxes, clocks, and displays to brighten your homes at Christmastime—or any time!

If you'd like to share your unique decorating style with us, post a picture to our Facebook, or email them to our Customer Support team. We look forward to hearing from you!
