Exciting News from Department 56!

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

The Village Shoppes are delighted to announce that we have the 2019 Department 56 annual catalog in stock...and it's FREE! It's chock-full of exciting, new Department 56 introductions that you're going to want to preorder with us, ensuring that your collection is complete!  


New this year are additions from DC comics including the Daily Planet building! 



The most popular newspaper in Metropolis is based in this impressive skyscraper, topped with the infamous golden globe. Circling overhead (and faster than a speeding bullet) is neither bird nor plane, but Superman!  The mighty Man of Steel is always close at hand to keep  a watchful eye on the Daily Planet, his alter ego's coworkers, and all of Metropolis!

In another city not far away stands this majestic stone manor.



This not-so-humble abode is home to the city's most famous socialite, billionaire Bruce Wayne, or as the criminals of the dark and seedy underbelly of  Gotham know him, Batman. When the Bat Signal appears in the sky, the Dark Knight pulls his Batmobile out of the Batcave and heads to work! 

These new additions to Department 56 conjure up childhood memories of a simpler time when one's imagination turned anyone or anything into a villain or a super hero. Don't miss out on the excitement...order yours today!

New! Limited Edition Pieces in the Snow Village Collection!

by Deanna Pietrzak on 11/12/18

The newest addition in the Snow Village Collection, "B Sweet Shop", is a limited edition boxed set designed as a tribute to Ed Bazinet, the founder of Department 56. 




One of Ed's dream was to open a fine candy shop in New York City. To commemorate that wish, this limited edition, 3-piece, boxed set includes the only accessory to ever intentionally depict the founder of Department 56. Limited to 1,976 hand-numbered pieces in honor of the year Department 56 was established, no Snow Village collection will be complete without this set.

Creative minds never stop imagining and Ed was no exception to that. Today, his determination for the best continues to inspire the Department 56 team...the stewards who hold the legacy Ed leaves behind.
