What's it worth on eBay? Dept 56 fun or fatigue

This Norman Church sold for $495.

It has come to that time of year when owners of Dept 56 Christmas Villages are ready to retrieve their collection from the attic and create the fantasy village from days gone by.

For most, it is a fun time filled with many memories. For others, setup fatigue has overcome the joy of the display.

Resale on eBay carries a wide array of values. We recently sold the Norman Church for $495.
