About Reasons To Believe...

Santa artists from all over North America meet up for our SantaFest

Since the mid 1990's Reasons to Believe has pursued a single ambition of being the premier store for Santa enthusiasts and collectors.  Year after year we have continued our focus on bringing to you the most extensive, exclusive and collectible Santa figures available.  From one-of-a-kind hand crafted Santa creations to popular themed figurines, we work closely with artists from North America and overseas as well as major figurine companies.  Each year we introduce hundreds of different Santas from some of the most gifted Santa Claus artists in the world.

Santa Claus - annual edition by Better Homes and Gardens

After a couple of years in business we began receiving write-ups in many regional newspapers and periodicals. We even did an hour long live "sculpt and interview" with a local (Seattle) television station.  Additionally, we were fortunate enough to be recognized on a national level and featured in two separate editions of Better Homes and Gardens Santa Collection books (Santa Claus Collection Volume 4, and the annual Santa Claus guide for year 2000).

Reasons to Believe and many of the artists represented here have designed and produced artwork for many figurine and collectible companies including the Enesco Corporation, Franklin Mint, Midwest of Cannon Falls, the Bradford Exchange, Coyne's & Company, Sylvestri, and United Design. Their original Santa carvings and sculptures are used to make cast figurines for these companies.

Connecting Santa artists and their wonderful creations with Santa enthusiasts is what we do.  Whether you are a serious collector in search of the most distinguished and detailed Santa or a casual browser just looking for a little gift for someone, we're sure to have a unique Santa Claus creation available for you.  We're proud to say we have collectors in all 50 states and have shipped Santas to 46 different countries.

Santa Claus is all about children.  Reasons to Believe has been actively involved with several wonderful charities over the years; The Boys and Girls Clubs, The Forgotten Children's Fund, The Angelus, Children's Hospital and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Our efforts are focused on children in need. Every organization we work with shares our concerns and in their own way are tremendous 'gift-givers' to children everywhere. We encourage you to give generously to your own local children foundations.


So you need a special Santa? We can handle that. Richard Nosiglia, Les Ramsay, Rick Wiebe posing with their amazing Santas
