Santos of Years Past - Part II

For our Five Year Anniversary,

many of the Santos Dolls that we carried over the years but got discontinued along the way will 'revisit' in a special photo album entitled 'Santos of Years Past' that you can find here on the blog, on Pinterest, and on Facebook. It will feature photos, artist impressions, and portraits of Santos from way when (and some from a little more recently) - many of which never shared before. This is the second installment (for part I, click here)

Santos Savings Continue. AND... Anniversary!


Articulated Santos Mannequins. [discontinued]


High FIVE!

We started carrying Santos Mannequins and Cage Dolls online late November 2009 - soon followed by the first incarnation of SantosCageDoll.com. In other words:

It is our Five Year Anniversary! A somewhat bitter sweet one since we will be closing our site/shop in just 6 weeks (i.e. on January 1, 2015), but... c'est la vie. :)

As these things go, quite a few of your Saintly favorites were discontinued over the years, for one reason or another. But in the weeks to come many of them will 'revisit' in a special photo album entitled 'Santos of Years Past' that you can find here on the blog, on Pinterest, and on Facebook. It will feature photos, artist impressions, and portraits of Santos from way when (and some from a little more recently) - many of which never shared before!

Today this 'memory lane' of discontinued Santos starts off with photos of three that now are members of the SantosCageDoll.com family only in spirit: A beautiful 24" Blue-Green Santos Cage Doll, and two stunning Santos Mannequins.

As said, expect many more
'discontinued' Santos of Years Past photos to be published on the blog, Pinterest, and Facebook. We will also, likely once a week, send you a 'digest' of them in our Newsletter - along with NEWS, of course. :)

Speaking of which:
Although various of the Fall Clearance Savings products are now sold out (and... discontinued), we have added various more 'Hearts' to the category. So grab them before they are gone for good!



Hooray, :)

NEW Santos Angel! FREE Crowns! Claim Yours!

 

(Can you tell we're overjoyed? Please excuse any exclamation point overloads! ;) )

Even though SantosCageDoll.com won't be around much longer, we wanted to introduce some new Santos Dolls before we close our 'doors'. A month ago or so we introduced the new Light Turquoise Mini Santos Doll on Stand - along with various other new Santos items. And today, perfectly in time for the Holidays, we are excited to announce the latest (and, alas, last...) amazing, graceful addition to our SantosCageDoll.com Collection:


The Heavenly Blue Santos Angel with Tin Skirt! She has brown eyes, with such a serene expression! And her brown 'combed' hair beautifully complements her fair, bisque-like complexion. This angel's carefully 'pleated' skirt is, as said, a gorgeous blue, with a wonderful distressed finish - and her body is painted to match. A Saint with palms facing up, standing firmly yet peacefully on her round pedestal... Such a blessing!

Not only that: She arrived with her sister, the 20" Ivory Painted Tin Skirt Santos Angel - a 'huge' customer favorite from last year who thus is back in stock now. Don't lose your chance now if you weren't in time one year ago to have her angelic presence grace your home for Christmas (and beyond)!


As an introductory offer, each Santos Angel currently comes with a FREE petite Santos crown; the perfect little crown these Santos Angels can be seen wearing in various of these photos!


And that covers it... If you prefer more frequent updates, make sure to also follow us on Facebook, where we post 'the latest' various times a week. :)



PS:
We are still adding numerous Santos favorites back in stock, various times a week. But also more and more are being deleted from the inventory, with others soon to be sold out permanently. So please make sure not to miss out; get your favorites in these final two months - while you still can!

What's Taking So Long?!

So here's the deal:

Our 
20" Aqua and Ivory Painted Tin Skirt Santos Angel (see photo below) and her 'Sister in Blue' (both announced here previously) were originally scheduled to arrive at SantosCageDoll.com early October.
However, there have been a number of delays on their journey to us...

Including --after finally leaving the Philippines with a one-week delay-- a mid-journey freighter switch/partial rerouting.
A week or so later that was followed by a huge blazing fire in an already heavily congested harbor, so out of safety concerns the still loaded vessel then had to leave the harbor for a few days, until the fire was under control. (Yes: The Angels are 100% unharmed!)

So now we are waiting for them to be loaded on a truck, and then arrive at our offices late October/early November. Finally! :)

 

 

As a thank you
... for your patience in this matter we do have something cool in store for when the 'Tin Skirt' Angels finally arrive. What that is exactly will be revealed in the next newsletter!

 

 

We complete this blog update
... with the happy news that the Articulated Mini Santos Angel Mannequins (in Red, and Blue; see photo) are now back in stock! In addition, the Large 'Gold' Wooden Angel Wings are available again as well.
Find both the Mini Angels and Huge Wings in the site's 'New And Back In Stock' section. 


We'll be in touch again soon!




PS:
Some of the items we have been listing back in stock recently may have been added for the last time! Either way, please make sure to not miss out. Also because as 
SantosCageDoll.com's final two months progress we will be deleting more and more Santos favorites from our inventory!

SantosCageDoll.com 2009-2014



PLAIN TEXT VERSION:

We started carrying Santos Dolls online late November 2009 - soon followed by the first incarnation of SantosCageDoll.com. In other words: Later this year we will be celebrating our Five Year Anniversary! :) (Make sure to check our future blog posts, newsletters, and/or Facebook updates!)

As these things go, quite a few of your Saintly favorites were discontinued over the years. But even though we can't bring THEM back, many will '(re)visit' the site, and Facebook, in the months to come via visual Santos mementos - aka photos.  

Unfortunately, after these five fulfilling, successful Santos years... the website will close its virtual store doors on January 1, 2015. I.e. from then on SantosCageDoll.com will no longer be offering its wide range of Santos Dolls and related décor!

Why this sudden change? Sometimes life evolves into other directions than initially expected. We love the Santos family very much, but our business is growing steadily in various segments, and we have arrived at a point where we need to make the decision... To bid a bittersweet adieu to all things Santos after Christmas 2014.

Please keep in mind that although we will still be featuring some new Santos items, as the year winds down we will increasingly downsize our collection. If you have had your eye on something for yourself or for a loved one, then you may want to order sooner rather than later - to avoid missing out. Of course, if an item you are interested in happens to be out of stock right now, email us to see when it will return. :)

Thank you very much - we appreciate you, and it has been a pleasure doing business over the years.
