A worldwide leader in creating pieces for this beloved hobby, Lemax has been providing Christmas miniatures to delighted consumers for nearly twenty years. Lemax is proud of its incredible quality and affordable pricing. Detail and value are key for the company, and they strive to deliver with every miniature and piece of Christmas décor.
Lemax offers an array of miniatures in various collections to meet the needs of different collectors and decorators. While the themes of different collections may vary, the intricate details, vivid colors, and quality craftsmanship are aspects every collection has in common. Following is a sampling of the Lemax village themes:
- Sugar and Spice: Whimsical, adorable, and positively delicious are the Lemax village Sugar and Spice collection miniatures. Developed from the concept of the gingerbread house, these pieces appear as candy-coated delights. Besides a bakery and taffy factory, the collection includes a toy shop, cottage, chapels, and more. Highlight with the Candymint Gumdrop Fences for an adorable accent.
- Vail Village: Skiing is one of the world's most beloved pastimes, and Lemax celebrates this in the Vail Village Collection. Rosy-cheeked figurines, the inviting Cumberland Lake Cottage, and the Maple Grove Sugar Shack bring a sense of all that is warm and inviting for the holiday season.
- Santa's Wonderland: Christmas would be incomplete without at least a hint of the Christmas icon Santa Claus, and Lemax celebrates the magic associated with this legendary figure in the Santa's Wonderland Collection. With brilliant colors, this themed village celebrates what the young -- and young at heart -- everywhere love about Christmas: yummy treats, brightly wrapped gifts, Santa, his reindeer, and the mystical elves. In addition to Santa's house and a toy factory, collectors will delight in the Ribbon and Gift Wrap Factory, Elf Skating Pond, and Santa's three piece post office.
- Caddington Village: The beautiful depiction of a thriving New England town comes to life in the stately residences and businesses of the picturesque Caddington Village. Gorgeous two-story manors, cottages, and houses can be carefully arranged to complement the warm and inviting Wilson and Sons Bookstore, Treasure Trove Antiques, Estella's Café, or Chelsea's Candy and Flowers. The lovely color schemes obtain a unique blend of lively color and elegant neutrality.
