St. Nicholas, Santa Claus,
Collecting Santa Claus
If you're a Santa collector, it's not just about figures. There are numerous ways to collect the chubby guy or in the case of vintage Santas, the stern-faced St. Nick. Toys, paper, pottery, fabric, metal, chalkware, glass or plastic, he's been produced in just about every material there is.
Krampus, Companion of St. Nicholas
Krampus -- the evil spirit accompanies St. Nicholas on his special day. He brings new meaning to "you better be good".
Bethany Lowe Designs
Terrific vintage-look pieces for every holiday, I was particularly excited with the Halloween designs. The collection of reproduction Halloween was well researched and nicely done. It should appeal to collectors of both vintage and new Halloween folk art. Vintage Halloween is rapidly becoming out of reach for many collectors and the Bethany Lowe collection can easily satisfy the "need" for the vintage look, but at very affordable prices.
