on "About Us" page...)
7 days a week!
Today is Wednesday, March 7, 2018
We are OPEN until 6 PM
in Suite 101 in the Redlands Plaza at 330 6th Street in Downtown Redlands!
We are already a week into March--and Easter is
ONLY about three and a half weeks away (it's really early this year, on April 1)! Are you ready, yet?
The "snow" has disappeared from our big display window and Spring
is starting to creep into winter's frosty place. We expect to see daffodils blooming in those window boxes and maybe some
forsythia behind the picket fences shortly...
If you have you been recruited to the role of "Assistant
Easter Bunny" (or at least assigned some of his chores) for this year's festivities
we can certainly help with that! Easter "Stuff", Pop-Up
Cards and Decorative Flags are available now at our shop!
To provide a bit of assistance with some of that, you should know
that the newest edition of the Redlands Coupons Monthly--with our DISCOUNT COUPON inside is here NOW! We have a stack
of them just inside our front door so if you don't receive them in the mail at your house or just need an "extra", stop by
and grab one! Use it to help out with your Easter shopping in our Shop and for discounts at lots of other local businesses!
We just got
a nice big shipment of those awesome 3-D Swing Cards, including a number of brand NEW styles
and have completely refilled our display (these are VERY popular so there were empty spaces, but no more)!
"Stuff" is up on one set of our seasonal shelves and a bit of Saint Pat's now occupies the other half--for a
little while! Remember to look for realistic Bunnies in both our Barnyard and Forest Habitats!
Save the Date: March 24,
the Saturday a week before Easter! Join us that afternoon to construct a fabulous Easter Basket
to pack with goodies to deliver on behalf of the Easter Bunny--or leave your beautiful creation out for the Easter Bunny to
be sure to notice and fill himself on his rounds before Easter morning (great for collecting Easter Egg Hunt booty, too)!
Wine and cheese will fit in your basket as
well as Easter eggs, candy and toys, depending on who that Bunny might be visiting this year!
Workshop is scheduled from 3-5 PM
and costs $35 per Basket-maker (includes all necessary construction materials)! Preregistration is required so stop in and
reserve your space soon--this one will fill up fast!
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!
Working our way toward Easter in that
big display window! Early spring flowers coming soon to the window boxes and behind those picket fences!
While those awesome Swing Cards produced
by Santoro, a British company, do not included specific "holiday" styles (too many international holidays to cover!), Up
With Paper here in the US most certainly does--and we have a number of their adorable Easter 3-D Pop-Up Greeting Cards
to choose from! Spring flowers may not be blooming in our display window quite yet--but they are in this pretty Easter
Bouquet Pop-Up Card!
Do you need a realistic plush Bunny
for an Easter Basket you might be working on? Here's a pretty one all in White by Myoni for Aurora!
Easter "Stuff" is up
on our seasonal display!
Turn THIS (above) plus THIS (below)...

We're already taking entries...!
We're getting our "Easter" on...!
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!
Easter is VERY EARLY this
year, on Sunday, April 1--and Easter Flags 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 will soon be appearing inside the February issues of the Redlands
Coupons Monthly and Highland Coupons Monthly!
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 will have a stack of them in store shortly (meanwhile we will still honor our January Coupon), so pick one up when you
visit and take advantage of all the cool deals inside!
