You may have seen people showing off their Lenox Spice Village collections all month on TikTok. For those wondering what in the world it is: know that Lenox Spice Village is the next collection of collectibles set to take over your kitchen. But they’re more than mere decor – they’re useful, too!
The Lenox Spice Villages are small, porcelain houses that don a flowery, dollhouse aesthetic meant to help you hold your spices. They can add something striking to any table setting and serve as a permanent statement piece for your dining room. The collections come in sets of 24, with spice names written on each house. Made by ceramic art company Lenox, these collections were made throughout the ’80s and ’90s, until they were discontinued. Now enthusiasts from throughout the world collect the different Spice Village collections for their heyday.
