Harry & David's 2011 holiday sales were up after a feeble 2010 season pushed the company to declare bankruptcy.

Harry & David's sales, a vast majority of which come through its catalog and website, declined 6.3 percent to about $245 million compared with $262 million a year earlier. While traffic was down, the company said, average order sizes of its fruit baskets were up.
