One year really would like to jump into the fun and start collecting villages. My family use to and always loved them but just all the places ive lived at were always to small.

I've seen a number of photos online with smaller displays including one that was on the back of a toilet! Anyway, there seems to be a good number of people inspired by villages and making displays on the smaller-space side of things.

I collect but need to visit there first to see it so I can appreciate the mini house a little more. It is nice though.

What a beautiful addition that piece would be for someone's Christmas Village. The Christmas Village i have was bought as a compete set. My husband found it for me at BJ's. I just love it. We display it on our entertainment center every year. I've had it since 2005, and besides my Nativity, and Chrsitmas tree, it's my favorite decoration to put out.
