“All Seasons Village 2”
This Platform has not been made yet. This listing is to place an order for this display. It takes a week to make the platform and be ready to ship. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
Welcome to my Holiday Village! I believe that village collections are always changing and growing. So I try to create pieces that will change as your collections do and are customizable to your individual buildings and changing needs.
I am very excited about this platform. It is designed to work with all your favorite seasons and holidays. Simply by changing out the ground covering, it can be used to display any season, especially Halloween and of course Christmas Villages.
I made the walls look like stacked stone so they would work with any time period and style of Village. It is easy to picture it set up with the Dept 56 Dickens Village and the Heritage collections, but its rectangular base and straight lines means it works well with the Christmas in the City Series also. With enough snow piled up it will even work for North Pole.
This platform is all about creating height towards the back of your display. No more losing your favorite building behind other ones. It will easily fit into your existing village set up or be a stand alone display on a buffet or table.
The tunnel base of this platform is 16” w x 16” d x 11 1/2” h. The secondtiered base is 16” w x 16” d x6” h. With the additionalsections it will fill up a 6ft. folding table nicely withplenty of room in front for addtional buildings. I have left the taller stairs unattached so they can be moved around to best fit your layout. See photos for measurements of additional pieces.
The tunnel on this base is 4”w x 5½”h. I wanted to make sure it accommodated many of the different sized trains used in village displays as well as cars and carriages. If you have a running electric train the platform can be set up with the tunnel towards the back of the table for it to pass through. Otherwise it can be positioned so it can be viewed from the front. I have also left an access point in order to install led lights in the tunnel. Imagine your Haunted Rails emerging from a glowing red or green tunnel.
As with all my platforms I have carved out empty spaces inside and underneath for wires and power adapters to hide. I also create openings in the backs and sides of the main base and some larger sections for wires to escape. **Note thepicture that looks like a storm drain.
All of my platforms are modular in design and finished on all sides so they can be switched and turned to suit your individual needs. Pictures show the platform set up in a number of different ways. Spread them out or stack them higher it is an always changing display.
***This sale is for the Main TunnelBase, a secondarytiered base,4 addtional sections andfive stair pieces as shown in the pictures with the rulers.
The last pictures shows what is possible by putting multiple "All Season Villages" together. The last picturedisplays All Season's Villages 2, 3 and 4. This sale is only for All Seasons Village 2.
**The buildings, trees, gates, train and other accessories are not included in this sale.
All of my platforms are coated in Foam Coat, a professional product that strengthens Styrofoam and gives it a harder textured finish. It has also been coated in a layer of gesso before painting. These two finishes give the entire platform a coating meant to last and that in no way resembles Styrofoam. I have painted this base in neutral colors trying to better match the colors of the Heritage and CIC pieces.
I have not glued items to this display preferring to leave itready for any season. A little moss or some snow should be all you need.

Ships Fed-ex (signature required) ground insured. Your platform will arrive in a new box, perfect for storing during the off season.
