Hello, and let me create a thread devoted to our beloved "Boney Bunch" candle holder line.
If you don't know what the Boney Bunch is...it is a candle holder line released each summer/ fall that is comprised of skeleton men, women, fictional halloween characters, and of last year, a dog! They are highly glazed ceramics that hold a variety of candle types- teal lights, votives, jar candles, etc. We have a collector on our forum, Grandma Lise, who is an expert on these pieces.
Here is a link to a page of Boney Bunch pieces. http://sites.google.com/site/boneybunchyankeecandle/ It has their release year, and retail price.
I will be very busy as I have 2 boys playing football all summer and fall- darned kids getting in the way again! But, I do want to let any BB collectors know that it has been reported on the Yankee Candle facebook page by a fellow collector that the launch date for the 2012 line will be August 4!
This date has not been released by an "official" Yankee Candle rep, so at the most it is just a hopeful rumor. YC has not confirmed officially if there will even be a 2012 Boney line.
Please know that there are experts that know way more about this line and Yankee Candle than I, but since the many pieces of this highly collectible line often sell out and can only be found on ebay for higher prices, I would like to have a thread that we could use to aid in our acquisition of this delightful line! We also have a member that works at her local YC that often has the scoop for us, as well!
If you would be so kind,share your expertise and time sensitive information here! We have a rumored 2 months to go people!
