2011 ....again, no Liberty Falls International Santas. Looks like 2008 was the final curtain.
For more history on the Libery Falls International Santas HISTORY of the company, see below the list.

OCTOBER 2010 -- No Liberty Falls International Santas were produced again this year 2010.
Seems to me that they probably have finally quit productions......but that is still just a guess ;o(

OCTOBER 2009 -- A reliable source has made the following statement about the 2009 editions of International Santas:

"It is with regret and disappointment that I should let everyone know there will be NO new issue of International Santas 2009. There is no program with Dillards this year or any other outlet for International Santas other than previous issues on the secondary market. There is, however, another outlet under consideration. In the meantime, hang on to the collection you have and enjoy. There always will be a Santa, somewhere.... "

More of the RECENT HISTORY on the International Santas is found at the end of the list.

HISTORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL SANTAS
FROM WHEN THE INTERNATIIONAL RESOURCE WEBSITE WENT DOWN - 2003:
1-26-04

Dear Collectors,

This is a very hard letter for me to write. Because of many factors which I will discuss below, International Resources is going to close its doors on January 31st, 2004.

Starting about three years ago, as most of you know, Dillard's decided to stop carrying Liberty Falls. While they renewed a year later, the damage to our collector base was extensive. This coupled with the weak economy and the continued weakness of the department store industry, has forced us into the position we are now in. Very simply, there is no more money to continue.

We have done our best to try and market the company for sale, and as of now, there are two interested parties. We have told them that we need to know by the end of the month. Certainly if either party decides to purchase us, we will let all of you know.

The decision to have our garage sale was due in two parts. One was because I personally owe the bank a lot of money, and need to try to pay down the debt. The other was for us to try to get as many pieces in collector's hands, without incurring an expense of which we have no money to fulfill. I realize it upset a lot of you, and for that I apologize. If there had been any other way to do it, I would have.

In regards to your orders, the shipment has just arrived and we will fulfill all of those orders this week prior to closing.

I want to thank you for all of your continued support of our company and products. I could not have asked for a more loyal and supportive customer base.

Very Truly Yours,

Laurence A. Stern


10-02-04 -- It appears that the line of International Santas is continuing this year even though the owner sent a message he was going out of business last year. Members of the Yahoo Santa Collector's group have already purchased them at their Dillards store this past week. I have listed the new ones as they were listed on the message board. No one knows for sure what has happened yet, but they are definitely a continuation of the past Santas. When I know more for sure, I will post it here for you to read. BTW.... it appears that the SC63 "Santa in the Chimney" that was distributed only by Sears is now numbered SC70 and called "Christmas Eve Santa". They are extremely similar from what we can tell.

10-03-06 There are actually 7 new International Santas for 2006. The missing SC79 is now released as Louisiana -- Papa Noel (limited to 2006 production ONLY). SC84 Set of six in large box holding six individual boxes --Puerto Rico, Armenia, Indian, Monaco, United Kingdom, Morocco (ONLY AS A SET). Each one is also sold individidually... SC 85 Puerto Rico--San Nicola, SC86 Armenia--Gaghant Baba, SC87 India..Father Christmas, SC 88 Monaco..Father Christmas, SC 89 United Kingdom...Father Christmas, SC 90 Morocco...Santa Claus. These are being sold exclusively by Dillards. If they are not available in your Dillards store, you can order them online at "dillards.com".

Let me also add that they are nearly impossible to find on the dillards site, so you will need to use their "SEARCH BOX". Put in: 2006 Santa Set to get to the set of 6 Santas and put in: New Orleans to get to the Louisiana Santa. Good Luck!

August 14th, 2007 - Newest information on IR Santas to be released at Dillards for Christmas 2007.........All we know at this time is that Dillards is getting these Santas for 2007: Newfoundland, Argentina, Liechtenstein, Taiwan, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Washington, DC. There are no known SC# at this time. As information becomes available, I will note it right here.....STAY TUNED!

Fall 2007 - Dillards is selling the 2007 line of International Santas at many of their retail stores and on-line. The new Santas are listed at the bottom of the list. I received the following message (11-05-07) from an International Collector that should be of interest to you:

NOTE regarding SC91 -- SC91 is an individually-boxed seventh Santa offering for 2007. (The bottom of the box indicates "Limited Edition", I don't know what this signifies.) People should be alerted to look for this one when they go to buy this year's offerings. I went into our local Dillard's on Saturday to buy, and simply picked up the SC98 boxed set. Of course, I perused the separate display of individually-boxed offerings, but concluded that I had them all. I was wrong. When I got home and consulted my inventory, I found the gap in numbers. I went back to Dillard's the next day, and found *one* SC91 still left on the shelf. (Most of the box sets were gone by then as well, which gratifies me to an extent, it shows there's enough market demand for these to keep going. :) To sum up, folks looking to get this year's offerings should be warned to look for the individually-boxed SC91 and not just pick up the box set alone.

FALL 2008 -- Dillards is now selling the 2008 line of International Santas. The new ones are added to the list. There is a box of 6 "International" Santas and a box of 6 "Regional" Santas. I thought these were supposed to be "International Santas"....I am not so sure about the "Regional" ones.... Many collectors are starting to wonder about the changes in the "collection" recently.

OCTOBER 2009 A reliable source has made the following statement about the 2009 editions of International Santas:

"It is with regret and disappointment that I should let everyone know there will be NO new issue of International Santas 2009. There is no program with Dillards this year or any other outlet for International Santas other than previous issues on the secondary market. There is, however, another outlet under consideration. In the meantime, hang on to the collection you have and enjoy. There always will be a Santa, somewhere.... "
