I really hope people aren't just starting rumors just to get a kick out of this.
    Yes please. We await your report. :

    Also, here is the latest posting from our beloved BB Love facebook page:

    "Sooo, I just got off the phone with my local store. The gal I talked to confirmed that they will only be receiving a very small amount of each piece - and that I will probably have better luck ordering online...

    Boney Bunch Love ugh. i wanna puke. getting boneys should not be something we have to jump through hoops for but evidently it looks like we are gonna have to. well... game on!

    thanks for that info Loveda, not making me happy camper, but beats my standing in line to get nothing"


    I hope these posts are not angering my fellow Boneheads. We have conflicting info and no official word from Yankee about anything. We should all be thankful we won't be gobsmacked on August 3rd if something is afoot!

    OK: I called the YC in the mall in Springfield, MO, and the gentleman told me that at their store the Halloween preview party is August 3rd from 10 am to 4 pm. He said they would be selling every piece they had and he was not aware of any other launches or parties. Then he said, in a confused voice: "As far as I know."

    Let me caution you that the YC store there is tiny. It's like a narrow alley of candles.

    1-800-243-1776 is the number for YC. I just called and they confirmed that the August 3rd date WILL have limited stock and that in MID SEPTEMBER the fall catalog comes out the Boney supply will be replenished and new items will be available.

    Call them and see what they tell you.

    They wouldn't give me numbers of items, the pieces that will be released, etc. But the customer service rep I spoke with gave me the above info.

    I'm so excited! Every year I host a breakfast get together and a group trip to the Yankee Candle Halloween Preview. I called my local mall and confirmed that our si also August 3rd, and put out the invite. To me, it's the official kick-off to the Halloween season, and it just feels so festive.

    I will say that last year one of the managers told me that they hadn't been making as much on the Boney Bunch stuff for a while and that they were trying out a more realistic line, "Skeleton Crew" which I have to say, I really liked. I got the tart warmer shown here: http://www.yankeecandle.com/items/yc...um/1229478.jpg

    And I like it so much I leave it out year round. I love the Boney Bunch and have a lot of the pieces, but I like the Skeleton Crew stuff too!
    I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect.

    I dropped by our local store on the way to work this afternoon. New manager wasn't there so I'll keep going back. Apologies for being so grumpy earlier. One too many curve balls this week.

    Unfortunately Kitty, that would never happen. It's wishful thinking and I wish we would at least get one of those someday.

    Yup, I can confirm that the stores will only be receiving a very small amount of Boney Bunch for the actual preview party, and not until mid September will we receive more of it. Also, the Boney Bunch tart warmer head is the hourly giveaway. Each store will be getting 7 of them, and we are only allowed to use them for the raffle, we cannot sell that item till September.

    Honestly, you guys have a better chance trying to get them online, but I've also heard that they may not release the stuff online till mid-September as well, but I will learn more and how much my store is getting tomorrow because we are getting the shipment tomorrow.

    I'm not actually very happy with the company right now, especially now that I found out the company is not giving us a money budget to buy the snacks for all the customers. They expect US the employees to fork over money to buy everything. I'm just disappointed in the company and how it's becoming right now :\

    Thanks for keeping us updated! So sorry to hear they are skimping on the budget. They are really on a lot of peoples poop list this year.
