Enchanted Village

In keeping with my Holiday Cheer for the month, 
JenniSixx and I headed to The Enchanted Village .

Here are some of the pictures.

The Enchanted Village is a holiday display that was created in 1958 by a Bavarian toy maker. The former Jordan Marsh Company commissioned a Bavarian toy maker to create 28 holiday scenes with "magically" animated figures. Basically, it's  the holiday  version of It's a Small World.
  
Throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, Jordan Marsh displayed the Enchanted Village in its Downtown Crossing store. The heart-warming display quickly became an integral part of New England’s seasonal celebrations. Until 1972, when Jordan Marsh closed the display, a trip to The Village was a traditional event. The Enchanted Village remained closed from 1972 until its rebirth in 1990. Then, in 1998, when Macy’s purchased Jordan Marsh, the Village was sold to the City of Boston for a City Hall Plaza display. In 2003, a lack of funding forced the Village to move to the Hynes Convention Center. By 2006, Boston stopped displaying The Village altogether. In 2009, the Village was put up for auction. Jordan’s Furniture purchased the surviving pieces of the Enchanted Village at auction in May of 2009 and restored the vintage collection to its former glory. The surviving collection includes 59 mechanical figurines and 18 vignettes.

How cute is The Enchanted Village?? I love love going to see it.
JenniSixx even likes going. While there, you can also pick up some of the famous
Jordan Marsh Blueberry muffins now renamed, Jordan's Muffin's.

Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Mree

  3. This reminds me of this town in Washington state. The whole town looks like it is from Bavaria. But alas I left Seattle 5 years ago and can not recall the name. This village looks so cute.
