Very nice – appropriate for the season. :)
We used to have a Dept 56 store here (Is the company out of business now?). Did they sell items in 1:43 scale or close to it?

I have read that Dept 56 was bought out by another company and isn't as good. I this this Dickens Village series is from the 90's. Scale doesn't seem to be the top concern with the Dept 56 designers, but I would say that are in the 1:50 to 1:48 range.

Using forced perspective can help. This church for example is quite a bit smaller that O-scale, but it works.

Unfortunately, the light bulb in the church burned out just after the first photo was taken and I didn't notice until I was done with the shoot.

This year the Holiday Village goes south to a place where Christmas come in summer.
