Collectible Santas with Free Shipping from SYW

Monday, November 26th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we have a large selection of collectible Santa sculptures and figurines for the upcoming holiday season. From mantle decor to a great gift, our St. Nicks are sure to please. Santa has been given many names over the years. Santa, Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, St. Nick, Father Christmas, and the list goes on if you begin including variations from other languages. The roots of where the name ‘Santa Claus’ originated from, stem from a combination of folklore in Germany, Scandinavia, Holland, and Great Britain. Whatever you choose to call this jolly gift giving man in your home, he always finds a place in our hearts.

Our Santa & Sleigh Centerpiece shown here to the left, is a good place to start with our Santa decorating theme. This large sleigh makes for a striking display in the center of a table, perhaps in front of the fireplace or even beside the tree. A wreath on the front of Santa’s sleigh, his plaid terry fleece coat with white fur trim and “snow” dusted berries, are just some of the amazing details you will enjoy making note of. Customers will appreciate that this item is on sale for $20 off the original retail and will SHIP FREE.

Tiny Santas

At Sturbridge, we have many smaller Santa collectibles too, if you prefer. These Santas are great for mantle or shelf displays, and also make great gifts. Seen here to the left is our new for holiday 2012, Recipe, Tree & Toy Bag Santas. Designed by Mary Beth Baxter, you’ll appreciate their engraved detailing. Available now with free shipping for just $19.95 each, they are adorable figurines when shown off together.

Another grouping of miniature Santas offered this season, is our Carved Folk Art Santas, designed by artist Lori Miller. Here you might find Santa with some unusual methods of delivering this year’s presents. Also shipped for free this holiday season, these carved wood replicas can be purchased for $49.95 to $54.95.

Sporty Santa

Santa has decided to take up some activities this winter in order to keep active. Pictured here on the left, is our finely crafted Santa with Wooden Skis. This collectible Santa sculpture is ready for the slopes with his wooden skis, poles, and a cozy red and white knit sweater. Though of course he can’t forget his burlap sack, full of gifts and fruit on the next run down the mountain; now $69.95 with free shipping.

For those who prefer snowshoeing instead, a customer favorite Santa from last year, our Chickadee Santa, is a nice alternative. Conversely, Santa is dressed in a deep green velvet, long winter coat with hood. Detailed accents of chickadees perched on pinecone branches on both sides, a faux fur trim, and a unique Norwegian inspired pattern, make this Santa’s coat one to be desired. The Chickadee Santa Collectible is available now for $59.95 with free shipping.

So whether you’re adding to your personal Santa collection or giving as a gift, any one of these Santas could soon become a Christmas time favorite in the home.

About the Artist Jim Shore

Known world wide for his folk art collectibles seen in numerous retail locations, his number one status as an artist brand on the QVC shopping network, and his work with Disney (Disney Traditions by Jim Shore). Growing up in rural South Carolina, Jim having artistic parents, was introduced to a love for all things Americana and family tradition. His grandmother was actually a master quilter and from these inspiring family members, grew an understanding for patience when creating his works of art. Though despite this artistic passion, Jim actually went on to study engineering and earned a degree in business in order to make a living. In his spare time however, Mr. Shore practiced his sculpting and painting skills, dreaming of the day when the artist inside him could prevail.

“Art is something I’ve done all my life. It’s what I’ve always loved and the only thing I ever wanted to do. But making a living as an artist isn’t easy. There are thousands of very talented people out there that never got the chance to show what they can do. I’ve been lucky. Not only do I get to do what I love, I get to share it with people around the world. I’ve been given a tremendous gift and I thank God for it every day,” says Jim. After a rocky start in the art and licensing world, he eventually began his own business: Designs Americana. From there his art was out in the marketplace, waiting for the right people to notice…and they did. Partnering with Enesco, (a leader in marketing gifts, decorative accessories and collectibles), Jim was able to have the support he needed to share his talent with the world.

You may be familiar with Heartwood Creek by Jim Shore, one of his more recent lines that features the notable angel and Santa collectibles. Drawing inspiration from his roots, old world decorative techniques, American folk art and unique patch-work quilt patterns from all cultures, his handcrafted style has become most recognizable. In addition to sculpting and painting, he has also perfected the trades of gold-smithing, wood carving, staining glass, and stone sculpting. Today, this self-taught artist looks forward to creating new formats that complement his existing brand and seeking exciting opportunities that meet his high quality of standards in art creation.
