I've been told that red sells best....

 If it seems that I've been stuck in the "red" mode, I've been told red sells best when it comes to Santa figures. What is your experience? On ebay it can be a crap shoot of sorts, as I've had people go crazy over purple Santa pieces, and blue, not so much the antique white although I happen to like them very much. I've never done  a pink suited Santa or Belsnickle but have seen some very lovely ones.
Anyhew....the 3 Santa ornaments on the right are a commission for a friend. The other one is up for grabs.
This Santa is for my friend's mother so I have to keep her name a secret....:-). I'm so grateful for friends who are willing to give me a chance to create something special for their loved ones. It makes creating more personal. 
So back to the red thingy, do you think red Santas sell best or does it matter?
By the by, if you are looking for some great one of a kind pieces to give as gifts this holiday season, our American Holiday Artists Studios Marketplace still has a few highly collectible goodies to snag. If you have a moment please stop by and see what our artists have been up to. We will also be updating on the 25th of November so stop by then as well. Hope you have a wonderful evening.

Hey there Sheryl,
Love the Santa's!
In my experience of creating and selling Santa's, all the blues,purples and pink Santa's are great, but I think that the Traditional reds, burgandies sell better. They target a larger audience.

Now personally for my own collection, I love a Santa in any color :)

Thank you Diane! Yes, it's fun to have a variety of colorful Santa pieces isn't it? I do tend to have more red than any other color though. :-)

Great Santas!
I favor the red Santa myself....and I have noticed that my red Santa's sell better....but I do have to admit them when I see a room done in an unusual holiday color and there are Santa's that match, it is very elegant.
And I love cream and gold.
But I think most people decorate in the traditional color, so it just makes sense that those would sell better
