Wendt and Kuhn is a traditional family-run business in the heart of the Erzgebirge, in southeast Germany. Grunhainichen, where the workshops are located, is a wood carving village, rich in history and tradition. For over 90 years, the workshops have been run with a staff of artisans who inspire joy through their collectible figurines. Previously, you could only purchase their products in Germany. Now, however, they are sold through select dealers over the Internet.

Here at the WeatherVane, we either stock or can obtain the entire Wendt and Kuhn collection. These figurines include Santas, children, white angels, and religious figures. Also famous and highly sought-after by collectors are their Blossom Kinder and friends, a collection which now encompasses 79 pieces.

If you are not familiar with Wendt and Kuhn collectibles, you soon will be. Their colorful charm and smiling faces are irresistible to anybody who likes figurines. Browse our online catalog to view some of our offerings. The company also makes German music boxes and other precious items of lasting value.

When it comes to charming folk collectibles, German smokers are as famous as German nutcrackers. They originated in the Erzgebirge in the mid-1700s. These incense burners and the rich, warming scent of incense are strong traditions there. As incense is often used to bless the home in Germany, smokers were a natural development. Collectors can find an infinite variety of smokers to add to the charm of their homes.

Favorite themes for German smokers are everyday people. In contrast to nutcrackers, which are usually modeled after authority figures, you can find smokers that represent men with pipes, Santas, chimney sweepers, and others. Almost any hobby, occupation, or personality type is represented by smokers. At the WeatherVane, we understand the need to collect these whimsical figurines for their practical use as incense burners, and for their collectible value.

Here, you will find the largest selection of smokers at the most affordable prices. What's more, you do not have to travel to small German villages to purchase them! We do that for you, visiting the Erzgebirge once a year to search for the finest handcrafted German gifts for people who are fond of collecting them.

Smokers make great gifts for your family, and each family member can build their own collection. If you have a doctor in the family, select a doctor smoker, or a golfer smoker for the golf enthusiast in your home. These are just a few examples of our most popular items. Shop our online catalog to

German-made products are favorite items to collect. People from around the world are impressed with the quality and handiwork that goes into making German items such as wood carvings, figurines, Christmas pyramids, and wooden angels. Fans of the Erzgebirge region know it is famous for its Christmas markets and handcrafted wood products. It is exactly these products that people want to take home as souvenirs.

Often, tourists wish to continue collecting pieces long after they return to America. Collectibles can reinforce memories of a fun vacation to Germany, strengthen ties to a family's heritage, and help pass on that heritage to children. At the WeatherVane, we understand that it is not always possible to travel to Germany in order to add to one's collection. That is why we carry hundreds of products in our online catalog, with you in mind.

Our store owner, Jane Tremaine, purchases her inventory personally during her travels around the world. While the shop prominently features items that remind people of what is "truly German," we also carry items from around the world, including countries such as Costa Rica, Poland, Kenya, and Canadian provinces. In the case of German-made products, she can import them directly from the crafters themselves, giving you an even larger selection.
