From The Manufacturer

Open the door to Victorian England, which at the time of Charles Dickens was the center of culture for the world and where many traditions we celebrate today took shape. The architecture, customs and history of Victorian England are inherent in the Dickens' Village Series. These distinguished and quaint buildings and accessories are an inspiration to all who make them part of their holiday traditions. A central piece in the popular "Christmas Carol" Village series, this is where Scrooge and Marley operated their lucrative accounting business. The piece is hand-crafted from porcelain and hand-painted. This item illuminates using a standard light cord and 6 watt 120 volt bulb. Designed by Village artists and manufactured by Department 56.

An Overview On Collectible Buildings & Accessories

Some people collect, organize and display items as a hobby. This pastime, which has attracted many different types of people for eons, can comprise basically anything from antiques and stamps to comic books and Beanie Babies.

While some collectors obtain things to sell them later for profit, others simply collect for the love of what they are keeping. And although the value of some items increases as time goes on, the value of others does not. Miniature buildings usually fall into the latter category. Some brands will increase in value over time, though, so do your research first if this hobby interests you.

Companies often create lifelike ceramic architectural pieces in painstaking detail that you can buy in individual pieces or sets. Collectors, on the other hand, love taking the time to seek out new, interesting pieces to add to their collections. You can create whole villages and town scenes over time!

Collectible building sets are often produced with different themes, such as different seasons. Some people prefer the ones that can be lit up for the holidays.

The Collectible Building & Accessories Buying Guide

    • When buying collectible buildings that light up, see what kind of bulbs they use and keep a few extra on hand.
    • You can buy one house at a time and slowly build up your own little village.
    • Figurines are a great option to add some life to your miniature building collection.
    • Make sure to store your miniatures properly for a longer life. One good option is to wrap them up in cloth and carefully place them in storage containers. Place these in closets or other secure storage spots inside your home that children and pets won’t be able to access.
    • Always remove lightbulbs before storing your collectibles.
    • Your collectible buildings do best in consistent temperatures and humidity, so keep them out of attics and basements.
    • Also, make sure to keep these collectibles out of direct sunlight.
