Dear Vaillancourt friend,

2012 was a tumultuous year with world-wide, and local, events that were so unsettling. It makes me truly appreciate the daily effort we spend year-round in creating Christmas for our collectors and friends; for every dreary event, we bask daily in the joys of the holiday season.

Joan, Kathy and Maria, three of our painters, have been with us for over 25 years and Bill, our rookie, for 16. The average employee at Vaillancourt has been with us for 17 years and for that we are truly grateful. Our family of American employees is honored to continue to create our high quality product knowing that they are going to collector’s like you. It is our hope that each piece will continue to make you smile throughout the year.

Most importantly, we want to extend a special thanks to you for supporting our small, family company. Your business and support make it all worthwhile and for that we are truly grateful. Judi, Luke, myself, and all of our employees wish you a happy and prosperous Christmas. No matter what happens around you, let Christmas live in your heart year round.


Gary Vaillancourt
