Bronners, known as the world's largest Christmas store (5+ football fields), recently sent out a newsletter of holiday collectible news, especially timely for those who like to get a head start on the holiday season. The popular colors for 2012 are shaping up to be "burgundy, candy apple red, green apple, the traditional colors of gold and cream, and the frosted ice look".
And the top trends include owls, dinosaurs, food items and patriotic items.
Well, I already have my pet dinosaurs in a bird cage and a fantastic huge white owl finial from two years ago. I am so happy to be ahead of the trend!
