While scale does vary slightly, on the whole the Spooky Town buildings are typically larger than Department 56 but the figures are a bit smaller, keeping more in scale. There is also a Halloween mid-year collection that releases around September. Quality paint jobs are the name of the game as the fit and finish of D56 product is typically superior to all others.
Some of the gift sets or licensed pieces can go higher than that. The buildings are usually slightly smaller than similar Lemax offerings, but the figurines are more detailed and bigger in size.

While their are purists that only collect one specific company, you can absolutely mix and match between brands. The pic above from one of my displays showcases wares from four companies as well as some things that I custom made. Some items are limited to a single year, others can stay in production for over a decade. This is why some buildings can be had everywhere and others are impossible to find. Hawthorne Village, sold by the Bradford Exchange, is another option.
Crypt 31 is a very new brand to Halloween villaging, having just launched in Their buildings are built by hand and are extremely limited in quantity. I picked up one of their releases last year and was very impressed with the quality. They plan to launch the collection in late July. You can check them out here.

Using my example at the top of this page, a Dr. I had a tiny display that I really enjoyed. I then just went from there, picking and choosing.
However, I actually got a bit carried away and for a year or two just bought as much as I could. Works great. Briefly displayed and carefully placed back in box after inspection. Moon weather vane missing. The water feature has never been used or tested. No instructions. It appears as if the "spooky skull lights" on the roof do not work. Overall very good condition, although part of a small fence has been reglued. Ghost and Dracula get stuck. This porcelain house is in good condition.
It works well with adapter included. Ghosts move behind the windows. The peg on the weather vane is broken, see pics. Overall very good condition, although the boat does not rock back and forth. Introduced for the season.
