The subtitle of this post is, “Yankee Candle is a bunch of lying weasels.”
The Boney Bunch is a fantastically popular collection of skeletal candles and accessories, and last year Yankee Candle claimed that they were going to go out on a high note and discontinue the line after the 2010 offering.
Loyal commenter wildeprose occasionally provides updates on the old thread, and recently alerted us thusly:
HELLO ALL!!!!! We are fast approaching 2011 Halloween season @ Yankee!!!! I haven’t had access to online in a couple weeks so I wasnt able to come here and mention as soon as I heard!!!!!
GUESS WHAT!?!?!?!?! Boney Bunch IS going to be back again!!!! I know I had mentioned last year that it was going to be the last year…..HOWEVER, as I also mentioned that the company has begun to be VERY sneaky with this collection!!!! It has been SUCH A CRAZE!!!!! SOOO yes, they tricked me as well!!!! But guess what?!?!?! They tricked the employees as well…they just wanted everyone to realize the limited amounts of the collections that come out each year….and to create a BUZZ!!!!!
I havent quite heard much about them this year, but will be hearing very soon some details!!! As in the past I will give the info as soon as I get it…and based on the past couple years, I have been getting the info before anyone yet!!!!!!
and followed up with:
They are being VERY SNEAKY even now! The stores that have been saying when the “Halloween Preview Party” was going to be are now being elusive! I should be hearing some info VERY SOON! It has trended that I get info about the pieces the first week of July! BE ON THE LOOK OUT!
So apparently they were just funnin’ us on the whole discontinued-product thing in an effort to drive up demand. Huh.
On the plus side, the series is cute and as long as you’re not suckered into spending too much (particularly for sold-out pieces on eBay; woof) they’re a nice option for a gothy wedding or housewarming gift.
Thanks to wildprose for keeping us in the loop!
