Department 56

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Every year for Christmas, I get my Uncle something regarding A Christmas Story. I've gotten him ornaments, the leg lamp - everything. But now I see that Department 56 has villiage pieces for the story. The house, school, Department store, everything! The only place I can find them are on Sears.com, and they only have 3 items.
Does anyone know where I can find anything else regarding them? I tried Deptment 56.com, and they don't have them... any help?! I'm desperate!

(Nothing like waiting til the last minute eh? )

This is the house that was in the movie... you can take tours of it now! Maybe this will help.

I think that the Christmas Story village (Dept. 56 stuff) is a Sears Exclusive. I've never seen it anywhere else. Do you have a Sears store anywhere near you that you could go look?

I called all the Sears around me and no one has them in their stores. I'm so weary of buying it online, I really don't want it to arrive broken, especially so close to Christmas!

Heather, have you gone to look at the house? I keep wanting to, but never get down there.

Did you check ebay? I collect Dept 56 Original Snow Village (also from the 50's era) and buy alot on ebay. Good luck! I bet you can find items there.

I just ended up ordering it online from Sears. I don't have much time and figured I wouldn't find what I wanted for such a good price anywhere else! I'm still looking for other pieces tho!

I just checked Ebay. They have 140 listings for Dept 56 The Christmas Story in the Collectibles section. I have only had 1 item arrive damaged - not the shippers fault and he quickly replaced it. Of course, now with my cats, I don't put anything out because their ONLY goal is to knock everything over! Boo Hoo! Good luck with your search!
