According to a news report, she has put them on display for around 14 years in her shop located at Main Street. And when she closes a Thanksgiving weekend, it takes her about 44 hours to set it up completely.

With pieces changing here and there, her collected has now become a miniature replica of the Los Lunas village.

It wasn't long until others started showing interest. "I had another business owner here in Los Lunas, and she asked ‘what do I need to do to be a part of the village?’ Now it’s become, ‘is my house up? Do I have a house in your village?’ And people look forward to being added to the village." Torrez said, as per the report.

During December, people come to check the display from places near and far. "The best part about it is them sharing all of their memories with us," Torrez said in the report.
