Back to regular

that weekday and Saturday "regular hours" are 10 AM until 6 PM, but on Thursdays (e.g., tomorrow) are now 2 PM until around
We have been collecting materials
we will be using for a Craft Workshop (for grown-ups and/or young adults this time) in March! What do you imagine we
might be inviting you to come and construct with us? Hint: It's something you will almost certainly be "needing" for
Easter, especially if you will be tasked with performing some proxy
Easter Bunny duties this year!
Easter Decorative Flags have already joined
Saint Patrick's Day Flags
a couple of nice St. Pat's Windsocks we had forgotten about!)
on our Flag wall--and we're already taking entries to WIN our Easter
Customer Appreciation Gift Basket for 2018!
Our SALE Table is
back--remember to check for recent additions added almost daily! (we just added a batch of silk-flower "everlasting" corsages
for insanely discounted prices!)
NOTICE--Now available at Star Tulip Stuffies:
You can now have us custom design and
assemble your own special Goodie-bags
match your party motif for you
to present each guest at your next event featuring an animal (or fantasy creature) theme! Scroll down for the official
announcement with all the details!
Naturalist in your family or circle of friends? Should you ever be in need of a gift for said nature-lover, we want to remind
you all that, while our plush is cute and huggable, most of it is far more than mere toys! Our realistic and highly detailed
stuffed animals come from exactly the same suppliers who help stock the gift shops at Zoos, Museums, Aquaria, National and
State Parks and Monuments (except that we have a huge selection all in one place that you might otherwise have to search several
such venues to find)! Many are artistically lovely enough to display as home decor as well as to appreciate for their tactile
and visual comfort value! If you've never visited our shop, the need for a unique gift that reinforces an interest in and
appreciation for Nature (and maybe even serves as a concrete reminder of an awesome family experience visiting any institution
Do you have an established or b
--or even the great outdoors itself) could just be your perfect excuse
to come check us out--we promise you will be amazed!
Every once and awhile one of you comments on how much you enjoy our background music here in the shop (it's so lovely we've
even had folks notice "our" tunes during a phone conversation and comment or inquire!)--because it is tranquil and soothing!
The CD's we almost always play are from a very talented local Piano Tuner, Greg Schultz--who composed and performs all the
works on each CD! We are very pleased to tell you that Greg dropped a few of his CDs by the Shop recently, so now you, too,
can enjoy his beautiful Nature-inspired compositions! Ask at the check-out counter--they are just $15 each, including tax--and
we play them until they just about disintegrate!
to check out our gift choices before you do all of your shopping at big-box and department stores with the cookie-cutter selections!
We, like all of our Downtown small business colleagues, go out of our way to bring you things you just won't find in the "usual"
places! Find unique gifts (holiday and year-long) for the most special friends and family members in your lives by shopping
Note: If you saw something on this
site a day or more ago and find it is no longer here (or
it appears this site has not been updated daily--we occasionally have issues with Earthlink's usually reliable
site builder!), check our Facebook address (link above)--there
is more "space" there to leave things up longer (and it usually works when the website is not available to us for editing),
so we try to do that in case anyone missed something here!
What do you suppose we will be inviting
you to create from these items (pretty, aren't they?) at our next Workshop coming in March?
Here's a BIG HINT:
We're already taking entries...!
Our storefront has begun to transform
from Valentine's Day to an Easter motif...!
Why not try our NEW SERVICE for your
next event with an animal (real or imagined) motif?
We do ask that you allow us at least 4-6 weeks ahead of your event to work with you for these functional
reasons imposed by the space-time continuum of the Universe:
all cases we will need to special-order the contents of your goodie bags (In the interest of diversity, we seldom if ever
keep more than a few pieces of any style of item on hand and almost certainly would not have desirable coordinating gift items
already in store.)
--There are a LOT of available choices
to mix and match among our many suppliers and you will want time to explore and think about exactly what you want once you
see some possibilities!
--We always check stock with our suppliers
to be sure they can ship what you select in a timely fashion and to allow you to decide among alternatives, if not.
--It can take up to two weeks for items to arrive once
we place an actual order from some of our best vendors, many of whom are on the east coast—and at least a few days for
us to assemble your favors.
LOOK what has returned!
Our SALE Table is back--at least until we need it again to host an event or as a staging area for
changing our window decor! Check in often to see what new "finds" from our storage area we've just added!
Saint Patrick's Day is just
a little over a month away--and St. Pat's Flags and a Windsock or two are up!
Not only Dogs and Horses, but also
beautiful Wildlife just in from Douglas Cuddle Toy!
Here's a recap of beautiful Douglas Cuddle
Toy Dogs and Horses that arrived the last week of December! Aren't they all simply gorgeous--and as wonderful to physically
hold as they are to visually behold (way better that "virtual" anything)!
Beautiful things always come from Hansa who artistically
sculpt plush into exquisitely realistic "Portraits in Nature"! Here are the most recent arrivals!
ON SALE NOW! Old-style, un-carded Charm-It charms HALF OFF the going price! Ask us to get them out
for you to look at!
(We like some of these better than the new
styles just added 9-9-2017!!
We HAVE CHANGED our Store Hours!
(In order to accommodate Kathy's need
to visit her Mom where she now resides at a long-term care facility in Pomona[!]--and to enable us to be OPEN during some
hours on Market Nights)
THIS is the DISCOUNT COUPON that is NOW appearing inside the January issues of the Redlands
Coupons Monthly and Highland Coupons Monthly!
