Hi Everyone! Had to share our finds today! You might remember the Bear Creek Christmas Village piece our dear, family friend Karen (aka Purplemoon) gave us for Christmas this past year. (We live on Bear Creek so the piece is perfect for us!) I'm hooked on Christmas Village pieces now! LOL I found 2 pieces at our community rummage sale today...for $1 a piece! No chips or anything! I also found some little trees for 5 cents a piece. Had to share! Can't wait to set up our village next Christmas! Bear Hugs! Kirk

The first picture shows the piece from Karen. :o) The quilt store is perfect in that my wife Carol quilts. The church is perfect as I used to be a children's pastor and my name means "of the church". :o) Meant to be!!!!! :o)

RE: Christmas Village

Kirk, beautiful Quilt Shop and Church you found. What a deal at $1 ea. Love the fact that they both fit you and your dear wife perfectly. Karen is so sweet, finds the perfect gifts and is such an "Enabler" at the same time!LOL

Will be waiting to see your display this year.

RE: Christmas Village

Kirk...Your finds are wonderful. It is a beautiful thing when a gift from a friend can start you on something you will follow up on. You will think of Karen each time you set up your village. I know Karen feels good knowing she found such a perfect gift for you. Thank you for sharing.

RE: Christmas Village

Kirk...Just a little something I noticed on your Church. The times listed for services are: 8 AM and 12 AM. Did you notice that?

RE: Christmas Village

Thanks for the nice comments. Everyone is always so kind on the forum! This was a fun purchase. :o) If you have a Christmas Village, where do you find your pieces? I'm going to look for some small cabins to go with the woodsy scene. :o) Thought I might start checking on-line. :o) Marylee...you have a great eye! Midnight mass? (...or a goof! LOL) Bear Hugs!

I started collecting my Village pieces YEARS ago, hit the sales when they were 50%-90% off. The packs of trees are usually easy to find at big discounts. But the people and accessories go FAST. I just found this Old Mill at the Humane Society TS a few weeks ago, it was $2.

Kirk, what neat treasures. Isn't Karen just the greatest friend to everybody. I keep seeing really cheap village pieces and would love to have a larger layout, but am space limited. Guess I"ll just have to enjoy everybody elses. TFS Janet

Hi !! Just wanted to share my Dollar Tree Christmas display. You can buy each individual piece or the whole thing for just $36.00. I added snow, lights, twigs for trees and the rest and made a cute display. Just like you, I like to be thrifty and I love these inexpensive pieces. BTW, I love yours !!!!!!

Here is a link that might be useful: My village

RE: Christmas Village

Sushi, your village is set up wonderfully! I loved the way you did the video of it. And your description of how you did some of the things. Thanks for sharing with us!

I saw Village pieces last year at my Dollar Tree for the first time, and bought some accessories. Its so neat they were carrying things, makes it really affordable compared to other places.

Please post more anytime.
hugs, Karen

RE: Christmas Village

Hi everybody.. I recently started to collect christmas houses and found out after ordering some that some were more "transparent" so that the whole house shines a little bit and that some were more solid where the light only shines through the windows... What's and easy rule to go by? Which brands and collections are the more solid ones? I would very much appreciate some help =)
