Default Does anybody collect Christmas town villages?

I'm thinking of starting a Collection where I'll buy a few every year. Is there one company that is better than the other?

My mom has a collection of David Winter cottages that she puts out every year. They used to be limited (and hand painted), but now they are more affordable since they are mass produced. They look really nice though.

Dept 56 is another popular brand. Check Ebay for the different variations and brands.

Both my mother and my girlfriends mother do, they love it. My mom has a lot of dept 56, the villages are pretty cool once they're all set up
