Back to a "short"
work week for those of you fortunate enough to have had yesterday off--and one day closer (only 9 days left now) until Thanksgiving!
You KNOW how soon Chanukkah and Christmas will show up after that (we're pretty sure that time simply speeds up at this time
of year)! Our updates are also "short" today" as we try and finalize (it takes us FOREVER to decide what NOT to order for
you from all of the choices at our disposal) some pre-holiday orders--and get a Fall Newsletter out!
However, we are here
at the Shop and happy to take a "break" (please give us an excuse!) to help you check some of those "to-do" items off your
pre-holiday "chore" (oops!--we mean "elf assignments"!) lists!
Besides all of the new styles of Christmas
and Everyday Pop-Up Cards just in, a box full of 10 designs of those amazing Swing Cards has just arrived!
Santoro, who makes these fabulous 3-D greeting cards that sway in response to the gentlest puff of air or mild jostle,
does not do specific holiday styles, but there are several stunning winter-theme ones in this group that could certainly be
used for Christmas! Scroll down for an image of today's featured newly received Swing Card!
"Stuff", including a selection of really nice Chanukkah Flags to acknowledge and help celebrate this beautiful
tradition and an early taste of Christmas "Stuff" have replaced all of the Halloween "Stuff" on our seasonal
The first round of Christmas Decorative Flags has appeared on our Flag Wall!
Is your house "dressed" to greet those Thanksgiving guests--or just to
share in the beauty Autumn? We still have a gorgeous selection of FABULOUS Fall Decorative Flags, including some specifically
for Thanksgiving! We hate to blow past this time of year too fast; it's one of our best seasons here and while it's
probably a good idea to start working on that list of Elf chores for later this year, we think it's perfectly fine to savor
the beautiful colors and mellow temperatures of Autumn while you are at it!
AND we have the following
Caden Henderson will again
be collecting Teddy Bears for the kids stuck in Loma Linda's Children's Hospital over the
Christmas holidays--and we get to help!
All or most of the drop-off sites,
including us, already have Caden's Collection Boxes so we can start accepting your donated Teddy Bears as soon as TODAY! Scroll
down for all the information, including our offers on some SPECIAL TEDDY BEARS you can purchase from us at seriously reduced
prices to put into Caden's Collection Box!
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!
Star Tulip Stuffies
is pleased to again support Caden’s Bear Drive with the following SPECIAL OFFERS on Teddy Bears to be added to
year we will start by offering a choice between TWO Teddy Bears at
SPECIAL PRICES as indicated!
Spencer normally sells for $16-18, including tax, before any of our regular discounts, the
best of which would be about $2 off, so usually the lowest regular price for Spencer would be $14-16. HOWEVER, IF you
buy him and put him directly into Caden's Collection Box we will charge ONLY $12, including tax.
Bumbley sits on our Teddy Bear
shelf at the regular price of $23, incl. tax, best price with our usual discount, $20. It costs you ONLY $16,
incl. tax to add a Bumbly to Caden’s Collection Box.
(Spencer or Bumbley is still the regular price if he goes home with you)!
We will deduct an additional $2
from either Spencer’s or Bumbley’s special price if you spend $20 or more on ANYTHING ELSE at the same time
in our Shop (we WILL apply any coupon discount to regular-priced "stuff", too)!
We are happy to provide this "incentive" for you to help
Caden reach his goal of 250 Teddy Bears for kids at Loma Linda Children's Hospital by Christmas!
We reserve the right to substitute Teddy Bear styles
and/or special prices should we run out of either Spencer or Bumbley during this year’s Teddy Bear Drive!
**VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:**
If you would very much like to donate Spencer and/or Bumbley to Caden's Collection and live too
far away or simply cannot get to our Shop for any reason, PLEASE CONTACT US!
We can send you an email invoice for whatever Teddy
Bear(s) you choose to donate that you can pay through PayPal from your computer. PayPal accepts
your credit card information to apply directly and only to your purchase without us even being able to access it and sends
both you and us a receipt record of your transaction. You DO NOT HAVE TO BE A PayPal MEMBER to make a one-time payment; you
just "Use as a Guest", following the (EASY) prompts at the link to Paypal our email invoice will include! There is NO
SERVICE CHARGE to you to do this, just the cost of the Bear(s)!
Two cases of Spencer are due
to arrive from First and Main in about a week or two. You can pre-order Spencer any time, starting now and we will
transfer your donated Bear(s) right from the shipping container into Caden's Collection Box as soon as they arrive!
We already HAVE Bumbley in stock,
so he can be purchased as soon as NOW for Caden's Drive. More are riding along with Spencer, so even if we temporarily run
out you can still have us add Bumbley to Caden's Collection Box the moment he arrives with Spencer!
We want to offer any BUSINESS or SERVICE ORGANIZATION who might want to
donate to Caden Henderson's Teddy Bear Collection for kids in Loma Linda Children's Hospital at Christmas this
year SPECIAL DISCOUNTS on any number of styles (see photos) of bears ordered through us in ONE DOZEN increment quantities. All of the Bears illustrated are
10" tall (not shown to scale), sitting, and range from $18-$23, including tax, before any customer discounts in store. However,
the first 3 would be just $10 each per dozen, the next couple, $12 each per dozen and the rest would be $14 each per dozen
(we absorb BOTH the SALES TAX and SHIPPING!) business-to-business or organization-to-organization on a PREPAID basis to go
into Caden's Box upon arrival. Please contact us directly if you are interested/have questions, etc. (909-798-9313 or firstname.lastname@example.org or FB message).
ALL shown styles are currently in stock at the manufacturer,
BUT by mid-November last year this vendor as well as almost all our other potential suppliers were down to only a very few,
if any, of almost all kinds of Teddy Bears, so the caveat if you would like to do this and want a choice is to please ACT
Our Supplier has JUST informed us that they are ALREADY getting low on "Dean" and "Willoughby" AND "Regis"--so don't delay
if you want to take advantage of this opportunity, please!
You may have noticed a significant decline in recent weeks of available choices in our "Cat House".
About 50% of the reason for this, besides their obvious popularity, is that about half a dozen styles of plush Cats were recently
discontinued by Gund.
Never fear! Just in the nick of time, Ganz is stepping in to fill that void--and
we have an order including some of their newest styles on the verge of shipping. Almost as many, however, are so new that
Ganz does not even expect them to arrive in North America (Ganz is just over the border from New York on the Canada side!)
until the end of this month! So between this "delay" and the 3-week travel-time (allowing a week stuck in US Customs being
searched for smuggled drugs???!) from Ganz to us, we are being forced to be patient about the arrival of these NEW Plush
We promise they WILL be worth the wait--especially since well-designed, believably realistic stuffed animal versions
of domestic Cats are extremely difficult to find (that "cati-tude" thing is just hard to capture)! We have
to admit, though that we are not typically very patient and can hardly wait for any of them to arrive to help fill in
our partially naked shelves--so rest assured that we will be letting you know as soon as they begin to arrive!
Heeeeere's Chanukkah "Stuff"!
Chanukkah beats out Christmas this year by several weeks--starting on the evening of December 2!
Menorahs and additional traditional
items can be found in our year-round Judaica Collection.
First look at Christmas "Stuff" is
in our seasonal display area!
CHRISTMAS 3-D PopUp Cards are
And we just received a box full of
additional styles of Swing Cards!
Specific holiday cards
are not made by this international company, but there ARE several designs in Winter themes that could work VERY well
for incredibly impressive Christmas greetings!
This Polar Bear and Cub (subtly wearing red and green accents...) look like they are having a blast
doing some winter sledding in the snow!
Our red, green, yellow and orange display
window is full of Apples and Sunflowers for Fall!
We're taking entries NOW for our Fall Harvest Fun Customer Appreciation Gift Basket!
We added a few more Fall Flags, including
a couple more specifically for Thanksgiving when we ordered our last batch of Halloween Flags!
Fall "Stuff" is NOW on
our seasonal display shelves!
House Flags for Fall
are now appearing on our Flag Wall!
THIS is the DISCOUNT COUPON soon to be appearing inside the November issues of the Redlands
Coupons Monthly and Highland Coupons Monthly!
we will continue to honor our DISCOUNT COUPON found in The October issues!
of these are delivered right to houses in these areas, but if you don't happen to receive one on your doorstep, never fear!
We have a stack of them in store, so pick one up when you visit and take advantage of all the cool deals inside!
Our storefront is ready for Fall, including
our "Scarecrow" Greeter Cheetah!
We are SO excited to have just received
our VERY FIRST shipment from Bocchetta Plush direct from Queensland, Australia--complete with customs documents
affixed to the boxes!
Although from Italian origins, now that Bocchetta Plush has been based in Australia for around 15 years, we would
expect them to be quite expert at designing and producing plush versions of animals that inhabit their adopted home--and well
they do as you can see from the examples we chose, including a few representing some (actual, real) Aussie fauna we had never
heard of before! How cool is that!
Equally if not more impressive is the artistry with which the designers at Bocchetta have rendered certain specific
breeds of Cats and Dogs, some that are unavailable to us from US vendors! We are pleased to present these initial offerings
from both collections! We look forward to adding additional styles in the future!
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.
