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 cottage. 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!
