My Dept 56 Christmas Story Village

December 12th, 2011 by Ralphie

Thank you for creating The Christmas Story House and Museum – I know everyone says it, but it’s truly our family’s most favorite movie (year round)!

I’d like to share some photos of my Dept 56 Village, I’m not sure what’s more fun, collecting the village pieces themselves, or finding and/or creating the perfect accessories to go with them!

I just can barely wait to add to my village this year!

Thanks again for your time – hope you have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

Dept 56 Village Under the Tree 2011

December 11th, 2011 by Ralphie

Here is my Dept 56, A Christmas Story village. I have every piece including the O gauge train set under one of our trees. I use one piece that is not from the set as a filler.  It took just over 12 hours to set this up.

Dept 56 Village Under the Tree

July 18th, 2011 by Ralphie

Every piece in the set is on display under our Christmas tree. This year I will have the Christmas Story O gauge train set under the tree as well. Since the board is so big, I had to use a few pieces that do not belong to the set as fillers. It takes approx 12 hours to set this display up every year.
