Santos News, (Santos) Savings - & Happy 4th!

OK: This will be a bit of a read, but it contains important info - as well as a 4th of July Sale coupon!

It was 1 year ago when we sent out our last newsletter.

It was 1
1/2 years ago when closed up shop^.
So you may well wonder: What's up with a newsletter from 'us', then?

The answer, short and sweet:

Granted, that's a little vague... So in more detail:
In 2014 Amy took over from us (Jennifer and Rob at,, and others). And ^we transformed the Santos site in January 2015 from an online store to a huge Santos archive - which it is to this day.

Then 1 year ago - i.e. when you received our last newsletter - we announced that Amy's Eleanor Brown Boutique had started to carry several 'Santos' style products... Some of which used to stock! It added Santos dolls/busts to its 'Sanctuary' collection, in addition to milagros and ex-votos, crowns, angel wings - and other treasures of the saintly and angelic kinds.

Well... As of today, July 1,2016, Eleanor Brown Boutique is back 'under original management'. ;) I.e. Amy has handed the Eleanor Brown site - 'Santos' decor and all! - back to us, so that she can shift her life's focus while still - thank goodness! - remaining part of our e-stores family team! :)

And (y)our Eleanor Brown Boutique now has a site-wide 4th of July weekend Sale going, through the 7th! :)

Coupon code EBBHAPPY4TH gives you a celebratory 20% off on all of Eleanor's in-stock treasures - 'Santos' decor included! The coupon can be used multiple times. (Limit one coupon per order)
Your purchase(s) will ship within 1 business day.

With its reigns back in our hands will Eleanor Brown Boutique next start to carry 'new' antique-style Santos decor? And/or more of the old ( favorites?

That's to early to tell, still... But, if Eleanor does do so then we'll definitely share the details on Eleanor's Facebook page - so make sure to LiKE/follow! there! And may we also recommend you subscribe to Eleanor's newsletter? :)

As you may know we also had an online store called The Devoted, on Etsy. It specialized in rosaries, Catholic medals, and more. Well, we recently decided to add The Devoted's inventory to our MiNT Jewelry Supplies Etsy shop. So you also may want to check MiNT's 'New/Vintage Religious' section for some precious treasures (many currently on clearance!) for you, your Santos - or for a loved one!

Thank you so much for all the years you have been with us; we much appreciate it! /

It's a Santos Archive!

As we write this,
early January 2015, we DO have some Santos stock left - but itself no longer sells
Santos Dolls and their accessories! Instead... we have repurposed the site:

Welcome to the Santos Archive!
You read that right: now functions as a huge Santos Archive!
You may already have spotted that after we implemented (and announced) it early January of this year. But in case you did not know yet: The site has doubled its 'inventory' by featuring most of the products the site has sold over the years!

And just in case,
stay subscribed to our newsletter, folks! We may no longer be selling Santos, - and therefore have less 'hot news' to share - but if some sporadic occasions arrise, we may indeed still send you Santos-related updates. 

Make sure
too to check back on the website throughout the year(s) (as well as on our Facebook page) to see if something cool is going on... You never know! ;)

Here's to Santos!

Santos (Cage) Dolls: 2015 and Beyond!

Happy 2015!

Ready for... new experiences?!

Your favorite Santos site has undergone an exciting change! 

Even though right now (Jan. 2015) we DO have some Santos stock left, the website does indeed no longer sell Santos Dolls or related saintly décor.

Yet somehow we just... more than doubled the site's Santos 'inventory'!


Please allow us to explain! now functions as an archive! Pouring over our vast cache of photos of antique-style Santos for weeks, in the last quarter of 2014 - trying to decide which ones were going to be included in our 'Santos of Years Past' anniversary photo album installments - was the initial spark. As the weeks passed we got closer and closer to our 'end date'. And it became more and more clear we could not simply shut down this website! And at the last moment, at the year's end, we knew that with a little bit of extra effort we could - and 'should'! - keep this site open - even if it would no longer stock Santos and their lovely likes!

So, by showcasing most of this site's past Santos Dolls and related treasures, now not only archives many more Santos Dolls than all the 'Santos of Years Past' installments combined, it also has many more photos of Santos Dolls - plus of course all(?) past product descriptions! Last but not least also archives an abundance of other Santos décor we carried over the years. Crowns! Wings! Milagros! Lockets - and more!

Is that all, folks?!
Time will tell if there will be any further changes made to the site. For potential future news your best bet is to (at least) occasionally check our page on Facebook.


Please do understand that for the time being (and possibly permanently) any emails, messages, phone calls, inquiries, etc. to/for/about - including on Facebook and Pinterest - may not get a response from us; we literally do have other business attend to. ;) An important exception to that 'rule of silence': In January 2015 we will still provide mail and email customer service for any Santos décor purchased from us in December 2014.

Folks... Stay tuned!

Close to closing, no more Santos sales, BUT...


Almost 2015, and so close...
to 'closing' the shop! We trust your Christmas was magical and merry! Ours was, too - though in the back of our minds there was this nagging realization we were now less than a week away from having to say goodbye... ;(

We won't be having any more sales,
but our 15% - 35% Off Clearance section is still open! And, we were selling out its Santos products left and right, so we just added more! [UPDATE an hour later: Some of those added are now also sold out!]

For example
the customer favorite 25" Maria Santos Statue, our 30" Santos Mannequin on the Stand, those LARGE Wooden Golden Angel Wings, a beautiful Silver Plated Milagro - plus more!

Not to worry:
As we mentioned here a while back, although the site's shop closes permanently on Jan. 1, email customer service will still be available that first month of 2015, for your December purchases made there. :)

Thank you, folks!
