From the New England Village Series, a collection by Department 56, portraying a simpler time when America was beginning its great traditions.
The coastal area of the East: a place to spend the holidays - not only Christmas, but the summer months as well - and the reason the coast brings up so many happy memories. Weather going to the beach in August, or to Grandma's for Christmas, a favorite place to stop is the taffy shop. Here boxes of taffy have been prepared for gift-giving. This cheery house is painted with the bright pastels of the shore. The adorable accessory shows a cute little boy with a new found friend; a squirrel follow along, capturing dropped treats.
Check the details: Candy colored tiles outline the doors and windows. A porthole window captures the style of the coast. Sculpted Delivery Cart and Woodpile add charm at the side. A large table with turned wood legs displays the iconic gift boxes adorned with red bows for the holiday. Wooden crates wait on the front porch to be delivered to across the country for Christmas. Sacks of sugar have just arrived and oversized awning reminds us of peppermint striped taffy. Menu board showcases the top selling taffy flavors, light spills onto the porch from the large bay window.
Hand-crafted and hand-painted porcelain lit building. Set of 4 includes porcelain figure "Making A New Friend" and 2 sisal trees. Includes light cord and bulb.
