    Lots of items I can't wait to own, when I have enough room to display them. Love the Teddy Bear shop, and most of the Plymouth Harbor stuff. And the decorated homes.

      Just Whisper, I love the Teddy Bear shop it is sooooooooooooooo cute !! I was hoping that Lemax would have had more additions to Santa's Wonderland, but there isn't much at all. I had heard some rumors that they might discontinue that line, but I'm not sure.

      I love all of the Vail Village items too and can't wait to add them to my collection.

              We're in a one bed Apt. if I make the village any bigger we wont be able to get to the computer, and where does the tree go. Having said that I am plotting out how to make the best use of the space I have. I just have to stay away from Lemax & Dept.56

                Wow Billy, knowing that makes your display seem even more impressive. I can't believe you found space for it.

                      New village collector.... hi everyone! Thanks for Lemax 2012 photos

                      Hi everyone!

                      Thanks for the photos, I'm so excited to see them. I'm a newbie at Christmas Village collecting! I just started this past Christmas. I love Lemax buildings!

                      I'd like to understand how Lemax produces things, because I already saw some of the 2012 buildings (from your photos) at the store shelves last Christmas, and I even bought one of them already.

                      So does Lemax re-produce popular buildings? And if so, do they do it only when a previously made building is not yet retired? How do the other lines, Carole Towne and Coventry Cove play into the production? If something made by Lemax was popular, could they potentially release it in later years under the Carole Towne or Cove village lines? I ask because I have been looking for "Grahams Grocery" and can't find it. I'm waiting to see if it might be re-released?

                      How about figurines? I think I saw past Lemax figurines in stores last year at KMart and Lowe's. Also, when will we see the catalog for Lemax items sold at Sears, Kmart, Lowe's and Michael's?

                      I'd appreciate your expertise in this!

                      Again, thanks for the photos. I'm already planning to keep an eye out for some items. :-)

                        You are so welcome Wonderland !! I'm so glad that you liked the Christmas village photos. Love your screen name !

                        Each year Michaels will have some Lemax buildings that are exclusive only to Michaels during the first year of production, but the next year any seller will be able to sell the same buildings. So the next year the old Michaels exclusives become part of the regular Lemax line. Michaels keeps their exclusives a big secret so we really never find out what they are each year until we see them show up in the stores.

                        In regards to Kmart and Sears, they will usually have the new Lemax items on their website a few months before they hit the stores and sometimes listed as early as late Summer.

                        In regards to Lowes, the items are usually made by Lemax but we don't know what they will carry until it shows up in the stores.

                        Once Lemax retires an item, it doesn't go back into production. However, sometimes they will try to produce something similar.

                        Your best bet on finding Graham's Grocery would be to watch eBay. It really is a super nice building !! Good luck with your search !

                        Hope this helps !

                          Hi,

                          Thanks! I appreciate all the info. Wow, that explains the Michael's buildings -- although I don't see the point of the "Exclusive" bit if it comes into general circulation the next year. By the way, how can I tell which were the Michael's exclusives from last year, 2011? Maybe they'll make them for Lowe's this year!

                          By the way, is this the same concept for people figurines? I think I see a lot of the people figures end up at Kmart under the Coventry Cove line. Are people figurines all released at the same time under different lines? Do they reproduce figurines? Does a Lemax figurine get made again the next year under the Coventry Cove line?

                          I've been watching ebay, haha. And as a newbie, I guess I'm just impatient, even though it's only been a few months. Graham's Grocery, Pete's Pool Hall , Gunsmith Tanner, Stage coach and Dr. Baxter/Apothecary are ones I am trying to find. I guess if I wait long enough, one of them might show up on ebay!

                          Anyway, I had promised myself to only buy a couple of starter buildings and people, and then to add a building or 2 every year, so that I can start a tradition. But I ended up buying 9 during after-Chrstmas clearance, haha! I'm trying to be more selective on *which* grocery I get, etc.

                          Your pics are great. I definitely will get Saloon!!! Maybe the market...dunno if I should get this, even though my dream grocery is the Graham's Grocery. But I think my townspeople figures needs a grocery in town! They may starve. Hahaha!

                            The Michaels exclusives have a special box and will usually have a silver stripe area on the box and it will say Signature Collection. Bernie's Teddy Bears was one of the exclusive buildings, but there were quite a few more.

                            There are always some different Coventry Cove figures that are different than any of the other Lemax figures, so I always try to see what they will have each year.

                            Congrats on your after Christmas additions !!! Way to go !!! That is the best time to buy them !! During the off season you won't find as many items on eBay, but usually you will get them at a good price. I have the Gunsmith Tanner and just love it !! You have some great items that you are looking for. Just be patient, they will eventually turn up on eBay at a good price.

                            I love the Saloon !! It is soooooooooooo cool !!

                            I also like some of the Halloween buildings like the new Ice Scream building and truck. LOL

                            We wouldn't want your townspeople to starve !! I like Graham's Grocery, so I have my fingers crossed that you will be able to find it.

                              Hello,

                              I am wondering if I can get your opinion.

                              Some places like eHobby has a pre-order for the 2012 Lemax collection. I really want to buy the upcoming Caribou Saloon & Hotel. I think I can find the best deal if I were to buy it at a store like Sears or Michael's - not to mention the possible chance of getting it on discount, or, getting a price adjustment as the season gets closer to Christmas.

                              But I don't want for that item to get sold out. Do you think it is wise to pre-order? Would a building like this run out of stock from all online stores (like ehobby) by Christmas?

                              Also, if you have had experience with the Thomas Kinkade (Hawthorne Village) buildings, do you know if it's close to the scale used by Lemax?
                              Could I mix them together?

                              Thanks!
