The end of each year brings an end to some of our most beloved products from Department 56, which are retired from production. This includes Village Houses and Accessories, Snowbabies Figurines, and Possible Dreams Santas. Once Department 56 decides to retire something, the mold is broken. This limits the number of products available and allows Department 56 artists to innovate and create new designs.
Luckily, Kris Kringl still has some of the pieces available that retired in 2020. Be sure to check out the Retired Village Houses and Accessories at KrisKringl.com in particular as these items are going especially fast!
For reference, here are the complete 2020 Retirement Lists from Department 56:
Cheers and Happy New Year to all of our collectors!
