The Boney Bunch

Boney Bunch CoupleThis post was originally going to be a little heads-up about Yankee Candle’s new Boney Bunch product line, but then reader Alea wrote me with a problem: Because Halloween falls on a Friday this year, there’s a spike in Halloween weddings and Yankee Candle has sold out of the Bride and Groom.

Their reps are saying that they don’t know if they’ll be able to restock before Halloween, and this particular item is so popular that it’s selling for up to $400 on eBay right now. Alea hopes that if we all nag Yankee Candle, they might make restocking a priority.

If you’re having a Halloween wedding and would like some of these cuties as favors or cake toppers, or if you just want to let Yankee Candle know that we spooky types are a nontrivial part of their demographic, you might want to drop them a line at and ask them nicely to restock these guys before the big day.

(If you’re lucky enough to be a Halloween bride next year, better keep an eye on these and snap them up as soon as they’re back in stock.)
