Welcome to Foster's Imports and thank you for checking out our website. We are a second generation family owned and operated german import business located in the great Pacific Northwest city of Seattle. We are a german family with a passion for the german culture. We love german folkart, food, music, history and the people that make all of it happen. It is our family mission to enhance the lives of others by helping to make this wonderful culture available to other people. We have the pleasure to serve customers from all over the world. Within the german culture we specifically focus on handcrafted items from the Erzgebirge region of Germany. Our company was originally founded by Meike Foster in 1987. Meike was born and raised in Germany. She built a legacy of hand selecting all products that are sold through Foster's Imports. This tradition is continued to this day. This is done to maintain the highest of standards and integrity. The german products we offer are imported directly from each individual craftsmen located in Germany. We have personal relationships with each of the craftsmen and return to Germany each and every year to purchase our products.
