The AlmostEurope ecommerce websites are a division of The LMII Corporation, a company founded in 1985 and incorporated in the State of Missouri (1994), USA. If you are ever in St. Louis, please feel free to visit our showroom!
The mission of AlmostEurope is to provide to North American customers high quality, native crafts from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Tyrolean Italy. It is our belief that American travelers to Europe will return with a keen interest in purchasing mementos that were difficult to buy overseas due to fragility, size, or high cost.
We also feel that there is a market for quality keepsakes as presents for special events or friends - a time when a dime-store cuckoo clock or bag of chocolate just will not do. Customers will have the luxury of purchasing their gifts from their own home in US Dollars and from an American firm. Offered prices are comparable or discounted to those found in Europe. See our pricing policy for further information.
We sell nothing but handcrafts from the heart of Europe. But that means items may not always be in stock. Customers should wait for a confirmation email (within 24 hrs) or just give us a toll-free call. These are handcrafted items and it is possible that an alpine shipment has not yet arrived to replenish stock.
If you are a collector, register with us and take advantage of our 2x per year sales when we order for the St. Louis Shop. 10% off all purchases!
During the rest of the year, you may have to wait until your pieces are carved (wood) or poured (pewter) and handpainted. We ask for your patience- every item you purchase is unique, and time is needed....
We wholesale certain products- woodcarvings from Val Gardena, pewter ornaments from Bavaria, and Posters & Calendars from Garmisch. Please contact us for further information.
