In case you don't know what this is about : Department 56 is a company that makes little villages and figurines. Each year they "retire" certain pieces. This pieces become more valuable, so people run out and buy a bunch of them.
DEPARTMENT 56 ANNOUNCES 1997 RETIREMENTS

Every year Department 56 retires several designs from production. This practice limits the number of pieces produced and allows room for new additions to our collectible Villages. Collecting The Original Snow Village or one of the series within The Heritage Village Collection is certain to be a delightful addition to your holiday decorating. Whether you have been collecting for years or are just beginning, Department 56 has a Village that will bring to mind Yesterday's Memories and become Tomorrow's Traditions.
AVAILABLE WHERE FINE GIFTS & COLLECTIBLES ARE SOLD NATIONWIDE OR CALL 1-800-LIT-TOWN (548-8696) FOR INFORMATION ON A DEALER IN YOUR AREA.

Our Consumer Service Representatives will be available to answer your questions beginning Friday, Nov. 7, 1997 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Central Standard Time.
