Individual and Group Pieces to Add to Your Dickens Village Collection
Below is a product selection featuring Dickens Village pieces for your village. If you cannot view the products on this page, you can find them here.
The holiday season is a fun time to let the child in us take over. A Dickens Christmas Village is the perfect decorating project that combines seasonal celebrations with imaginary fun. Best of all, new pieces can easily be added every year.
There are several ways to display a Dickens Village:
1. First and most common is to find a large flat surface like the top of a mid-height cabinet or a window seat where an entire village can be created. For example, a flat surface that measures approximately 2 feet deep by 5 feet wide makes a lovely-sized village. Here’s an added tip; use small boxes to create various heights for the village pieces to sit on. That way, the town appears more artsy and realistic with “hills and valleys.” Gently lay a white sheet over the boxes, then use fake snow all around the pieces to give them that winter wonderland look.
2. The second way to build a village is to create several small communities with coffee and end tables throughout the house. If you have four or five smaller end tables to spare, decorate each with a unique Dickens theme.

I’ve collected Department 56 buildings and figurines for years and love my Christmas village! Having grown up in New York City most of my village is from the Christmas in the City collection but I do have several of the Dickens Village figurines including some of the ones you’ve shown here. We light up the buildings (Department 56 also sells lighting kits for them) and the lit village with the figurines always looks magical! We run my husband’s O-scale model railroad around our Christmas tree and set the village on a “snow”-covered setting on the floor next to the tree (and sometimes in front of it as well) so that the train runs through the city. The terminus is the Department 56 Grand Central Station building – it’s perfect!
Margaret this must look amazing!! I do a Christmas Village every year, but nothing like what you do! wow, I would love to one just like that – a Christmas in the City Theme would be my taste as well
This would be a fabulous display for any Christmas decor. Just gorgeous.
