WATCH: This Laois shop window is a Christmas wonder

There is something magical about peering in a Christmas shop window to be surprised by moving figures, and a little giftshop in Laois has outdone itself with a handmade display.

Breda's Gift Shop on the main street in Mountmellick features a delightful village snow scene filled with miniature buildings all handcrafted by the local proprietors Breda and Eoghan O'Neill.

There are ski slopes, a train station with a train chugging around the scene, and a handmade miniature church, shops and houses, all filled with figures of tiny people busy shopping, skating and having fun.

The window has delighted their customers, with comments of "magical" and "fantastic".

Watch our one minute video to see all the scenes in detail.
