Our Mission ...
Is nicely captured in a sentence quoted from Delacroix by the American Historian David McCullough during an interview with the
New York Times ...
"What I demand is accuracy
for the sake of imagination."
... Where discerning sharp buyers seeking the the most naturalistic and artistically handcrafted Nativity Stalls this side of the Atlantic, plus accurate historically-themed birdhouses and replicas of early New England architecture will feel right at home.
Why order from Nature's Heirlooms?
Because you, and your loved ones want and deserve the best.
Ordering a hand-crafted nativity crèche display stall and our other excellent products from Nature’s Heirlooms says much about you and your desire to create a unique year 'round ambiance and the ultimate Christmas atmosphere for your home and loved ones now and for years to come.
We use only the best stains, paints, and techniques to fulfill our goal of becoming America's "go to" builder of nativity stalls. Equally important, we are dedicated to avoiding the use of any metallic fixtures, with exceptions for historic accuracy, enduring outdoor elements, or meeting a buyer's specific request.
The figurines pictured shown on the website are old family sets used for display purposes. Presently, we do not produce our own regular set of figurines. However, we will upon a special request, have a hand-carved set made. Prices for all items can be obtained on request.
Each item is signed and dated by Steven Barrett.
Money Back Guarantee.
