The Dickens Christmas Village is one that will amaze you! Oooh and ahh over all 3,000 pieces that together depict what life was like at Christmas time during the Victorian era in London.
Made by Department 56, the first pieces were introduced in 1984. This set is complete with every piece made between then and 2006. The miniature village also features historical landmark pieces and literary classic pieces from Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. This is one of very few collections exhibiting in its entirety to the public.
Put together by avid collector Jo Strickland who used to put the Village on display at her Somerville, Texas home during the holidays, this amazing site is now on permanent display in the Strickland Gift Shop & Dickens Village for everyone to enjoy year-round. If you think you won't enjoy this display we dare you to come and see it.
