We’ve barely made it halfway through September, but that is not stopping retailers from starting to promote and sell Christmas decorations. For many, it’s a great time to score early savings on Holiday decor while others simply wish to gather some Christmas decor ideas.
For fans of the Lemax Christmas Village Collection, Michaels has already posted the latest 2022 Lemax Christmas releases online. You will find plenty of exclusives pieces this year only available at Michaels including a ski resort, reindeer stable, candy store, ice fishing festival and Santa village. Plus, you will find new releases from all the most popular Christmas villages including Caddington Village, Santa’s Wonderland, Plymouth Corners, and Vail Village.
Although many of these popular Christmas village pieces won’t be available online for a few more weeks, you can still view them at Michaels stores.
If you are shopping around and looking for pieces that might be sold-out, be sure to check out Gift Spice or one of the many retailers listed on the Lemax website. Michaels typically carries only pieces from the current years collection. If you are looking for retired pieces or last years buildings, one of the collectible stores might be good to check out.
For those interested in knowing the items available in this years collection, I’ve put together this list of the new releases in the 2022 Lemax Christmas Village Collection with links to their product page on Michaels.com.
