Beginning when she was just a little girl of six- or seven-years-old, Jillian Mago's grandmother would bring her to The Village Shoppes and let her pick out a lighted village and accessory from our Department 56 selection. That sentimental reason is why she choose our line of lighted villages and accessories as her favorite.

Jillian's grandmother is gone now, but our Department 56 collection remains as a treasured reminder of the cherished moments the two spent together, carefully selecting the perfect additions to their collection.

Create special memories with your grandchildren while starting a new tradition with them when you visit Indiana's largest Department 56 retailer... The Village Shoppes.
