Whether you put a couple of lit houses around your Christmas tree,

create a small village once a year, or have a full-blown metropolis of

over 100 buildings on display all year long, the passions of collecting

shine brightly, from the glowing windows of these unique structures.



Most people collect something.  Those of us who enjoy "villaging," revel

in the typical joys of collecting, plus, so much more. The satisfaction of

watching others experience our display efforts, or the euphoria in finding

that one special piece you've been searching for, just add to the fun.



Besides the rush of the collecting endorphins, this endeavor can also

provide more holiday cheer, the comfort of "home," the pride of

tradition, and/or the appreciation of participating in a popular art form.



Since cavemen first scratched images on their walls, the desire for

creative outlets, and sharing the results, has been a powerful need.

For most (but not all) of our community, village displays fill that

desire. Some collect only a single brand, such as Department 56,

Lemax, Luville, Holiday Time or any of the dozen village brands

available. Others like to mix and match whenever they find

anything they'd like to add to their display.



This website is an effort to help promote and share our fun with

villagers, and potential villagers, everywhere. My wife and I hope

you'll share your thoughts, photos, tips, discoveries and more

with us, to keep improving this site, within our limited budget. 


Please tell your friends, and check back often. The more visitors

we have, the higher up the search engines our listing gets.

That makes it easier for web surfers to find us.



Happy Villaging  -  Bill & Kathy
