Department 56

1-96 of 183 patterns
Department 56's origins date back to 1976 with Bachman's, a leading retail florist in Minneapolis. A large and successful enterprise, Bachman's used an extensive numbering system for its different departments; its wholesale gift imports division was "Department 56." That year, Bachman's introduced six lighted ceramic cottages in what became known as the "Original Snow Village" and the rest is collectibles history. Series today include Dickens' Village Series, Snow Village Halloween, and many more.
