Before you groan and moan about how ‘early’ I am –posting about Christmas and Dolls — I would like to gently remind you that The Pattycake Doll Company is an etailer of dolls, and as such, our Christmas Sales period starts in October.
I don’t mean that we decide to have sales in October, I mean that we see a huge uptick in business starting in October, and in the next eight weeks we will sell more dolls than in the preceding 44 weeks!
And about 10% of our customers are already buying our ‘Santa’s Sack’ gift wrapping service as well. So it’s not just us… our customers are ‘there’ too. Christmas has started at the Pattycake Doll Company!
Perhaps you’ve never considered dolls as ‘Holiday Decor,’ perhaps you’ve only thought of dolls as gifts for children or collectors.
But for our family, when the holidays roll around, we decorate the office with Christmas Themed dolls, and our favorite is The Grinch!
Just about everybody who walks into our office goes over and picks him up or has a comment. He’s really popular. The UPS man bought one (at a discount of course), a couple of visiting sales ladies asked if they could ‘get themselves a Grinch,’ and of course I get asked a bazillion times if I have him out as a warning that I’m some kind of a Grouch/Grinch myself!
I’m not trying to suggest that you rush right over to our site to buy one, (although I wouldn’t complain), but just wanted you to think it over… Would you decorate your house for the holidays with dolls?
PS: We carry Max the Dog and Cindy Lou Who as well, but we don’t put them ‘out.’ They’re popular with the kids as dolls, but not really popular as decor.
