Imagine the bustle of people in a town square in Dicken’s Merry Olde England. The coach is packed for the holidays and clatters down the lane past quaint shops and the village church. Last-minute shoppers hurry to the market to buy a turkey for Christmas dinner, while the skaters and children frolic late into the night.
Lend a touch of warmth to any room with these handpainted, finely detailed, lighted porcelain buildings. Each year there are new additions and several others are retired forever, adding to their collectibility.
Headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Department 56 has become known for its handcrafted, lighted porcelain Villages, Snowbabies figurines and extensive lines of holiday and home decorative products.
