Introducing the Addams Family crypt...the perfect complement and outbuilding for your Department 56 Addams Family collection!

The Addams Family crypt bears the family name and is designed with the same architectural cues as the house. If only we knew whose hand is keeping the door ajar!

New introductions to the Addams Family collection also include:

Lurch - The lumbering butler is loyal and takes pride in the work he does serving the Addams Family.

Cousin It - Known for his floor-length hair and squeaky voice, Cousin It prefers to enter the Addams Family House via the chimney.

Granny Frump - Mother to Morticia, Granny rounds out the family, contributing to the antics. An older witch, Granny creates potions and spells and can even tell your fortune.

Come in to The Village Shoppes today to add the newest mysterious and spooky releases to your Department 56 Addams Family collection!

It's fun to go to Linderbrau Beer Hall at any time, but during Octoberfest, it becomes an event

Inside, we can imagine long wooden tables filled with friends sitting side by side, enjoying the music and merriment. Outside, notice the copper brewing kettles beneath the charming window baskets and timbered architecture.

Linderbrau Beer Hall (and accessory) is available now at The Village Shoppes!

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!
