Back in 1981 Bill Snyder and Glen Forbes formed a partnership with Irv and Julie Keller, owners of Keller's of Modesto, to create an import company known at Christmas Ornaments LTD. Together they leveraged their buying power along with over a dozen independent store who comprised the William Glen Catalog Association, to purchase mouth-blown, hand-painted glass Christmas ornaments from West Germany.
Bill Snyder was always very proud of the service his gift registrars provided. We try in every way to emulate his customer service standards and with improved technology we can now offer similar service and satisfaction through our Gift Registry & Wishlist options.
